Am I melting? I wouldn't sweat it. Themal shift looks good. It's also possible that it's left over semen from all the BDing you've been doing. Just kidding! It's likely left over. If it continues it may just be more production of it, but a single big glop is usually just left over. Log in. My account. Baby Registry. The Bump Baby Registry. Getting Pregnant.

I love you man! Thank you so much. EWCM usually means you are in your fertile window, not neccesarily ovulating. I've read on fertilityfriend. It said that the day you notice EWCM has dried up, is most likely the day you are ovulating.
Here is what is said in one of my course lessons:. When this kind of cervical fluid is present, sperm can be nourished and transported within your reproductive tract. Once in your reproductive tract in fertile cervical fluid, the sperm can wait for the egg to be released. Ovulation is most likely to occur on the last day that fertile quality cervical fluid is observed, though this can vary.
Cervical fluid observations, however, cannot tell you definitively that you have ovulated- just that estrogen is high, and ovulation is probably approaching. Cervical fluid observations tell when you are most likely to be fertile and offer an excellent way to time baby-making intercourse. To know for sure that you have actually ovulated and are no longer fertile, you will need to chart your temperature as well and observe a thermal shift temperature rise on your chart. The main function of fertile cervical fluid in reproduction is similar to that of semen: as a medium for sperm nourishment and migration.
Sperm survival and migration after intercourse is important because conception is rarely timed to exactly coincide with ovulation.
Successful fertilization depends on the storage and constant release of sperm to the female upper reproductive tract at around ovulation time. Increased cervical fluid may also cause an increase in libido sex drive and produces lubrication to make intercourse more comfortable and pleasurable at this time. I am so damn confused. Everyone has a different answer.
So is ovulation during or after?? That's my basic question. Update: Lucky Lady. Answer Save. Lucky Lady Lv 7. Favorite Answer.

My rainbow baby! This, and good luck! Sounds like EWCM to me. I notice whenever I wipe, regardless of BM or otherwise, but a lot of women don't have a lot of CM, so checking after a BM is usually more indicative for them. Log in. My account. Baby Registry. The Bump Baby Registry. Getting Pregnant.

What to Expect has thousands of open discussions happening each day. We work hard to share our most timely and active conversations with you. We keep them up because there are a ton of great conversations here and we believe you deserve to see them all. Ovulation question! I've been trying to do some research to find out when exactly an egg is released during the time when you get EWCM.
I had it for 7 days straight. Have any of you gynos told you ladies any hints on this? I'm doing some googling and it looks like the egg is released soon after EWCM starts. Some sources say it is released the day after the last day you see EWCM. I don't know, we need a CM expert to contribute here!! A confusing part to it is that when we read article saying " the egg is released after EWMC" its hard to tell what they are saying.
Like, does that mean a few minutes about ewcm, a day later, two days later. Ok I have no idea is this website is accurate or not, but it seems to be echoing what others say, which is that typically you ovulate the day that EWCM ceases, or for some women the next day.
Oops :S. When you say you've had CM for that length of time what sort of constitution are you talking about? I get EWCM quite regularly that stretches an inch or so but when I'm ovulating I get massive thick stretches of EWCM that you can't ignore lol only for maybe an afternoon coupled with cramps so I figure that's my 10 minute warning haha!
I guess biologically the EWCM would come maybe before the egg to preserve the sperm a little longer. My theory anyway.

Share and compare your symptoms in the 2WW! EWCM after ovulation? Is it usual to have fertile cm after ovulation? I'm not sure if this could be a good sign, or that my hormones are out of whack due to stress I moved house this month.
A few possibilities Lots of women have had EWCM before getting a BFP although usually this shows up shortly after implantation and unless you O'd earlier that may not be it since 3dpo is early for Implantation. Although it's hard, just hang in there I never could temp Good Luck! Baby Dust to you! I agree 3dpo is way too early for implantation, although I read that EWCM after ovulation can be an increase in estrogen in preparation for a possible implantation.
Just when you think you know what your body's doing it does something random I don't bother doing pg tests - my cycles are irregular, so knowing when to test would be an expensive nightmare!
I'll wait until I'm a day past my longest cycle and test then, so I'm just gonna have to sit tight for now! Thanks again for your response. I never did temps but have heard from others that it can take days for your temp to rise after O so it's very possible that you actually O'd on any of those days if you had EWCM.
If your not using OPKs it would be hard to tell for sure. If that's the case you could be anywhere up to 6dpo and it could def be from implantation since it can happen anywhere from dpo. Cycles can be so crazy sometimes! Baby Dust!!! Or was the IB different? Were your cramps AF-type? Also a couple of spots when I wiped sorry. I have used pantyliners for the past few days because I keep feeling a wetness no crampsjust in case AF comes. So far nothing on the liner, just the spots last night, the streaked EWCM, and the one cramp in the night.
Possibly TMI* big blob of EWCM after O?
BFN this morning at best a super squinty line that could just be the antibody strip, lolso I was feeling really discouraged until I read your response to this post. Thank you!! I know this is a bit long. IB can show up differently for everyone!

Some people get many days of EWCM, some only one day. Most people ovulate near the last day of EWCM, but you can dry up before ovulation, or still have some left after ovulation.
Good luck!! I personally have one patch of EWCM just after my period has ended but then some dry days. But as others have already answered, it varies from woman to woman, cycle to cycle.
You have to find you're own pattern. I had EWCM on the 18th, today is the 22th and its completely stopped. I am assuming that I am ovulating now?
I had the same question though. Thank you for posting the question it was helping to see responses! Pick your day past ovulation.
