    What do you do if you have cervical mucus like eggwhite but negative OPK?
    I'am in the fertile period or not? :wacko:
    Thank you

    Thank you ladies

    the question is I'm fertile now? Or should I wait till OPK will be positive?

    Usually when you have eggwhite they say your fertile. So bd just in case!

    I would bd - you could get your positive opk tomorrow. A few weeks ago after my miscarriage I had ewcm for 2 days & got a positive opk the next day. EWCM left the building the following day.

    Yes, EWCM is fertile mucous, so you can BD. You could have a positive OPK tomorrow, which means you would ovulate within 12-36 (some say up to 48) hours. If you're tracking your temperatures through FF, you can add the EWCM and it will paint a picture of what is normal for you.

    That said, you can BD, but some women get EWCM for several days prior to ovulating. :)

    I always get 2-3 days of EWCM before a positive OPK reading.

    As others have said, EWCM is fertile CM, so it's likely you are fertile now. Apparently sperm can survive for up to 5 days in fertile CM, so it's possible that sex during times of fertile CM could lead to conception, even if ovulation occurs several days aftwards.
