a note about creamy white cm after ovulation


I've had this on nearly every cycle thinking I've ovulated when that hasn't been the case so I just wanted to clear a few things up for anyone else wondering if this cm is a sign of pregnancy.

It is not, and I know it isn't because I've had no ovulation confirmed after experiencing a ton of creamy white sticky cm. There is alot of conflicting stuff online and even one website claims that after ovulation your cm will completely dry up and if pregnancy does occur then cm will be creamy and white in appearence!

Some websites say that this is normal after ov but whatever the case I don't think anyone really knows! I am about 5-6 dpo and again I have lots of this stuff but this time I'm not reading into it.

Quoted from a website:

"Right after ovulation your cervical mucus or fluid will dry up so much so that it appears that you have none. This usually continues until your menstrual cycle begins or is expected to begin."

any thoughts ladies?

Everyone's body is different. Some women have thick CM right after ovulation. Other women have none. Others still have lots of watery CM right after ovulation. And women from every group are pregnant.

Well I always have creamy white cm sometime after ov and before . I use EWCM to help indicate ov because it has never failed me. My CM never dries up except for maybe a day or two

Me too, if my cm dries up its a day or two b4 af. Alot of early preg. signs u cant rely on since progesteron is the hormone that cause them and its present with or w/o pregnancy. i have been pregnant 3 times and have 2 lc and i can say with the 1st 2 i didnt know till af was weeks late and the last one i found out b4 missed af because i was was having surgery and the dr tested me. I was shocked. so i guess my point is, symptom spotting is a waste of time. I will only get my hopes up if af is mia.

So glad someone thinks symptom spotting is a waste of time! Everyone on here is so caught up in their supposed symptoms (so am I!) but seriously, its not healthy to think everything is a sign!

I'm gettin a lot of creamy CM @ 6dpo, and always do. Seems to last me up to AF. I've always been 'dischargey' (nice ) since puberty began so I dnt read a lot into it aslong as its not wiffy lol I'm rarely totally dry

I symptom spotted for a while and just drove myself crazy. then i would feel ilke an ass when af showed up. A lot of women need to realize that only a small number of women actually can tell they are preg. before missing af, and even that can be just luck because they are the same symptoms of af. id say the only symptom u can really trust is morning sickness but that doesnt usually even start in the tww. i was prob 6 weeks b4 mine started and it was bad. I getting tired of seeing the same questions everyday. And answering them and getting attitude cause its not what they want to here.

Not that i dont love all u ladies and think its wonderful to have a place to unite. But it could save some time to look up old threads and the symptom spotting thread. plus they usually end with ur answer, the person either posted a bfp or ranted about the witch.

Hmmm I think everybody is different so you can't really say "this symptom" means nothing. It may for you and it may not for others. Like others said, everybody is different and every pregnancy is different.

Also I don't really see a problem with women who want to symptom spot. That is their business. Why would you tell them its a waste of time? Sometimes it can, sometimes its not. It gives a woman who has been ttc for who knows how long some glimmer of hope and at times that little tiny sliver of hope gets you through the day. Yes its hard when it turns out to be wrong but it still helped you a long in the waiting.
