Questions -- I need help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey Ladies,

I need some help. Today is CD22 of a 28-32 day cycle. I've spotted EW CM for the first time this cycle. I am new to analyzing all this information, so I could use some help.

I have read that EW CM appears the day prior to O, is that correct? Is that always the case? I am not temping, so no other info to go on. I have this horrid cold/flu/sore throat thing going on right now which I am not medicating "just in case" -- I don't want to screw anything up and I am holding up okay without the meds. Only thing is I have felt soooo not into BDing, DH and I have not BDed since Friday, CD 17. We probably need to BD tonight, right? Is it possible that I O very late in the cycle? As I mentioned before, I am new to analyzing this, but with much hard work sorting through random memories, I realized my EW CM happens for 5-7 days before AF shows in my cycles. Is this typical?

Sorry this is such a bombardment of questions. I am just trying to piece all the information I have together and get some answers. I tried to get the TCOYF book at the library, but they don't have it at my library. I checked the system countywide, and only the libraries at the far reaching corners of the county have it... Murphy's Law I tell ya. I may just have to buy it a B&N.

Any help/answers would be greatly appreciated.

TIA

Having a cold often increases your mucus secretions everywhere, so it can make CM more abundant than it otherwise would be and change its consistency. While it would be wise to BD just in case, I'm not sure that your EWCM really means O.

Good luck! Get well soon!

Hey, thanks for the quick reply.

Increased mucous secretions everywhere? Yikes. I didn't that.

I will however, BD with the DH tonite just in case.
