I have a question Re ovulation and the timing of EWCM... Does EWCM indicate ovulation is currently happening, about to happen or is there a chance its already occurred? Or is it different for everyone?

It varies, like everything ttc wise, from woman to woman. Normally you'll get some ewcm before you ovulate, and supposedly you ovulate on the last day you see ewcm or the day after. Not everyone is like that, some ovulate during, some get ewcm long after they've Oed. It's safe to say that you are fertile when you get it, though, and you should probably bd it out.

How long ago did you stop the bcp? If its been more than 2 months, I suggest you go to your doctor so they can help you jump start the process. Amount of sperm and ejaculate don't necessarily correlate, so don't start worrying about that now. Get to work on getting your cycle on track. If you haven't had a period, then you're definitely not ovulating.

You can a have a period without ovulating but I doubt the inverse could happen under normal circumstances, barring any trauma to your uterus. If your lining thickens and and egg drops, it's has to go somewhere if it's not fertilized, unless your uterus has trouble building up the lining. Your body doesn't reabsorb your lining and egg, it sheds it.

You can try temping to confirm if you're indeed ovulating or not, and if you are and are not getting a period, then you should get checked out by your doctor.

Hi I'm jordAn new to posting on the site, but have been searching the posts for about 2 months now... Yes I'm a stalker lol. Anyways I'm probably posting in the wrong place but here's my story and what I need help with....
Me and my boyfriend have been intimate for 9 years up until a year ago we were not trying but not doing anything to prevent it. Found out approximately 2 years ago that I have PCOS. A few months ago we decided to go to dr to REALLY try, since our natural efforts just are not working. Last month I took clomid days 3-5, cb opk gave me peak on CD11. 21 day labs confirmed ovulation with progesterone levels at 40!!!! Don't know what happened but AF came of CD 26 right on schedule which NEVER has happened and stuck around for 5 days, obviously I did not fall pregnant. This month took second round of clomid, days 3-5. Starting testing at cd7, had hsg test done cd9 and everything looked great they said. Got a high on cb fertility monitor on cd 11. I had little sharp pains every 20 seconds on left ovary side on cd 17 or 18 which I thought might have been ovulation but went home and tested and still no peak. On cd 20 now and still high with no peak. Obviously frustrating after having a picture perfect cycle last month. Anyways one thing I've done different this month is I started charting my bbt. I need help reading it because it makes no sense to me. I uploaded the chart, What do y'all think? Did I miss my peak? Did my peak just not happen yet? Am I even going to ovulate this month? Thanks in advance for your help!!!!

It's always best to start your own thread so people don't get mixed advise. I recommend fertility friend for charting your bbt, it's easier to read and interpret. Looks like you might have tried to o on cd19. Your doctor should monitor your cycles to see if clomid is working appropriately for you. Maybe next cycle you can get an u/s to check on your follicle sizes and so you can time your bd.

Hello,

I have a question. I have been charting ovulation for a year using cm, CBE advanced opk and temping. I have a 25 to 27 day cycle and always ovulate between cd12 and 13, usually 13. This month I got a negative cbe opk on cd 8 and then a peak on day 9 (yesterday)which is way too early for me ( this was a brand new kit). I also had a lot of ewcm. I immediately went out and bought a regular opk and tested and got a faint line that did not indicate a surge. I also did another test with a different cbe opk ( I had a new kit) and that one showed high fertility but not peak ( that is the norm for me at cd 9). Usually I O the day I get the peak and this morning my temps did not rise, I had no sore boobs which I usually get but my cm was dry and has remained for the most part dry all day. Used 2 opk strips today and neither showed a surge and my new cbe opk still shows high. My question is, could the first surge have been a false one? I read somewhere that you can have more than one surge in a cycle. Or is it more likely that I O'd early and the other opks are picking up trace amounts of hormones which is why I am get high readings? My cm was just as it always is when I O right down to me drying up the next morning. We couldn't BD last night and won't be able to until this weekend and I am worried I missed my chance.

If your temp hasn't shifted then I'd say you prob surged but didn't o. Keep monitoring to see what happens.

Can someone look at my chart? This is my first cycle charting BBT...I have a regular 28 day cycle, with about 6 day periods. I haven't been able to REALLY evaluate CM this month because DH and I have been BDing every/every other day....(sorry if TMI).

I am on CD18 and have terrible cramps and the sorest nipples. I've also been getting super nauseous after I eat...I have 11 days until my period should come...I'm hoping this is my month but my chart is all over the place (I think?)....I also had a positive OPK last night (CD17) but it was a Dollar Tree one and I've read they can give false positives...it just seems like CD17 is late to O and I thought I had O'd earlier in my cycle like between CD12 and 13 based on my temp dip and then rise....helpppp!!! Can anyone help me interpret this? Going crazy over analyzing!

Fertility Friend says I haven't even ovulated yet....what the heck!!! :-(

In order for ff to determine ovulation you need to have 3 consecutive temps higher that the previous 6. So, I don't think there's enough information to asses your chart. Looks like you could have oed on cd16, continue temping to see if with a few additional temps ff will give you crosshairs.

I oed on cd24 the cycle I got pregnant, and in cd 17 my first pregnancy (sadly ended in a mc). So, cd17 is definitely not too late and is right in. The verge for a normal lp length.
