Has anyone tried monitoring discharge for ovulation dates?
My GP told me that the consistency og vaginal discharge changes when you're about to ovulate. I though "get out of here" I don't even have any discharge! But I kept an eye on it last month, checking every day, and sure enough when I checked, there was a difference in consistency at a certain time of month. 10 days later my periodcame, so I'm guessing the change in consistency was when I ovulated.
Has anyone else noticed this?
It's known as egg white cervical mucus among the ttc community. As the name suggests it looks like egg white (the raw type) right before and during ovulation. This cervical mucus helps keep the sperm alive I believe and also balances out the pH of the vagina so that sperm can survive.
I try to! It usually is pretty dry after your period ends, then becomes white and lotiony, raw egg white texture, then pretty dry again. White and lotiony means about to ovulate and egg white means your ovulating. But some people don't even get this, but still ovulate. I'm trying to hold off on using any opks so I just try to have sex every other day!
Hi there I have just had my last little one 7 weeks ago and I had noticed around the 26th that I had a thicker clearer discharge that was very strectchy! I am assuming that that was the change! I had never noticed it before and yet I have had 5 babies now!! Lol. You should be able to stretch the discharge up to a inch without it breaking, The rest of the month my discharge is white. Good luck baby dust to you. xxx
