What does this mean? I only ovulated 2-3 days ago. I thought I was supposed to be dry after ovulating. It's like EWCM, but creamy colored.


anyone - March 1



S- - March 1

sorry, I only know about it right before ovulating. Are you sure you def. ovulated when you thought?


Lee - March 1

to S- Yes, I used OPK and had the surge line Sat am, so I figured I actually ovulated late Sat night or Sun am.

I have had the same situation with my last two cycles. What does this mean. I thought after ovulation you dry up.


S- - March 1

I checked in my book (Taking Charge of you Fertility and it said after ovulaton dry or sticky. Is your cm stretchy?- does it stretch past 1 inch? That's ovulation cm if it does. I know you said you have used the opk, but I have heard they are not always reliable.

It could take hours for cm to travel from the cervix to the vulvu. Ovulation can also be postponed, delayed or missed due to certain factors. Examine your cervix - this is the best guide - check websites. I do not know about this, but hear me out, my gynie said that OPK can still show the surge line in the morning even if you ovulated - lets say - last night, and I always used OPK, then one month my surge line never appeared (I test in the morning ) and I tested from early on right through, then I took a progesterone blood test which showed I did ovulate. The OPK are expensive in S.A. and cost R250.00 = 1625.00 US dollars for 5 sticks, I used ten, so I now use the cervix cm / positioning method. Good Luck.

Belle - Wow that is expensive.... they are cheap here - around $5.00 US for 10 sticks. I am pretty positive I ovulated on Sat pm / Sunday am. I test everyday and I had a surge line Saturday morning, then took another test Sunday night - it showed the surge line still there and then took another Sunday morning and the line was gone. Plus, I felt the ovulation pains all day Saturday. I am really hoping that this excess of CM may mean that I am pregnant, even though I am only 3-4 DPO.

Now its sticky and thick - not stretchy at all - what is this?????


S- - March 2

well, if it's sticky, then it is after your ovulation. could be sticky or dry the book said.

well i had the sam question and realize i still had white discharge after i ovulated like the few days before i ovulated the stuff looks the same.. about 5 days before my actual period that's when I was more but when i slid my figner wayyy up i can still find the white stuff.. bbut about 2 days before my period there was no white discharge even if i slid my finger way up.. and about 5 days beofre my period.. i feel mostly wet.. like im sweating down just when you kind feel yourself down there.. (i don't mena put your finger in tho) and yeah.. i thought it was kinda like.. when ur sweating ur armpits.. hope this help =/ lol

Dear Lee - I am so sorry, my currencies are mixed - its actually equivalent to $38.00, but $38.00 in US is different to the value of R250.00 in SA - let me put it this way, with R250.00 you can buy a great pair of pants at Foschini. Back to you - it is a fact that cm increases if you are pregnant, if you can, wait until you have missed AF to test, I know it must be so stressing to wait - ttc is really a waiting game is'nt it? women that want to test very early after conception will take a blood test. But from what I have heard it takes time for the results? here its 30-45 minutes if you go directly to a lab.


Lee - March 3

I have awhile to wait - I should have AF around the 10-12th. I am still have a thick creamy discharge - feeling wet all day long. YUCK! And, I have little twinges in my right side, but other than that - no symptoms. I also have kindof LOST my appet_te???? Who knows.


Lee - March 6

Today is about 7 DPO and still having discharge. Still stretchy??? Anyone have any more ideas?


K9 - March 7

I have had the same kind of discharge as you are having. It never disappeared after my ovulation date. I have been having small twinges on both sides of my bikini line, as well. What does this mean? I am due my peroid on the 12th.


jb - March 7

dont go by your cm im telling you from experience,,,i also had it after o right up until AF started is not a sign ..


Lee - March 7

K9 - I dont really know what this means. I am usually dry before AF. I am hoping this is my body keeping itself clean and ready for a baby! :) But, I am only 8DPO, so I am guessing it is too early to test. I should be due around the 11 or 112th too! Good luck to you and keep me posted!
