Ovulation Cramps?

Postby Littlelexy » Fri May 05, 2017 6:28 pm

I'm a 30 day cycler. I'm on cycle day 18 right now. For 4 days already I've had AF type cramps, obviously not as strong. Not even close. But still uncomfortable. And it's not all day, just randomly. My CM is a pasty white and there are lots of it in my underwear but when it's dry it's flaky. What are these cramps?! If it's ovulation cramps why is my CM like that?! I'm getting so discouraged :(

Hi, do you normally get cramps around ovulation time? I always have cramps for 3 days. A yeast infection can cause an abundance of pasty/creamy cm. Some women don't get the typical burning itch that goes along with a yeast infection either. Acidophilus (I hope I spelled that right) is a natural probiotic that comes in vitamin form or in yogurts with live active cultures. Maybe try that for a few days to see if it clears. Or maybe your body is just gearing up O. Cm can change pretty quickly so keep an eye on it. Good luck!
