CM has gone dry mid cycle... what's happening to me?

Postby LibbyMac » Tue Dec 20, 2016 9:55 am

Hi ladies - can someone help me interpret my CM and tell me what they think is going on?

After AF I had a few dry days, followed by three sticky days and one creamy day. On Sunday I had watery/egg white CM and had more of it yesterday so I thought ovulation was coming...

... but today I've gone dry...?

Why would that be?

I'm CD 16 and I've been chatting my temp and doing OPK's. Temp increased by 0.2 today and OPK's have been negative for the last 6 days so I would be pretty confident I haven't ovulated yet... but why the lack of CM all of a sudden?

Help!

CM can vary throughout your cycle. If you have been getting negative OPK's and your temp hasn't spiked, I'd keep watching for watery or ewcm to come around again and a positive opk. It usually shows up a couple of days before O for me, except this month it didn't show up until after my first positive opk. Do you know when you usually O?

Also, I've noticed that I often find things fairly dry in the morning and increased cm in the afternoon and evening, so check later today and see if things seem more normal for you!

Are you always taking your opks at the same time? 0.2 temp rise is usually enough to indicate you may have ovulated already. Has your temp stayed elevated?
