ewcm + ovulation questions...

Postby bp85 » Fri Jul 20, 2018 10:28 am

Hi! New on here. I wondered if anyone had any advice on this as I can't find anything online. My cycles are normally around 33/4 days long. I had ewcm on cd12-15 this month - earlier than I expected. I'm pretty sure I ovulated on cd21. We only had sex on cd21... (and I had no obvious cm that day...) Are we in for a chance?? I'm a bit confused as I thought the ewcm was supposed to come much closer to ovulation... Any ideas??
Thanks :)

What makes you think you O'd on CD 21? If you had ewcm CD 12-15, I'd guess you O'd CD 15/16. Cm is a pretty good indicator of O (although not a guarantee).

Thanks for your reply. My cycles are long - last month it was 34 days. So my predicted O day was cd21. And on cd21 I felt some right pelvic pains which I'm pretty sure was ovulation...

If I'm wrong and I in fact ovulated on cd15/16 then that would be 2.5 weeks before my period which seems quite long?

If I get a BPN I will be buying an OPK for next month to clear this up!!

Do you know your luteal phase length? Your cycle length will change depending on when ovulation occurred. If you're issuing an app to predict O without other input, that's not reliable at all- it's just guessing based on averages. I'd recommend temping for a few months to verify O and figure out what your LP length is. You might find that you O much earlier than you think you do or you may find that this cycle will be shorter overall because you O'd earlier.

Thanks for your reply! That’s exactly what happened - I had a much shorter cycle. This month I’ve used OPKs and made sure we BDed when I had the ewcm.... (which coincided with me ovulating) so fingers crosssd!
