So this is all TMI, but I don't know how else to explain it.

DH and I have been ttc for 6 months now. Last month after DH and I were "intimate", I went to the bathroom and a huge glob of mucous (tennis ball size!) shot out into the toilet. It was white-ish and tinged pink. (I started my period the next day....4 days early). This was not semen by any means. It was much more solid. My preiod was crazy heavy with larger than normal clots.

Was this a chemical pregnancy? Or...?

Any ideas?

in some circumstances semen can congeal a lot more than we think, i bet even more if he is a bit dehydrated and it might of looked like a larger glop of it when it flattened out in water

but wow that is a bit of a mystery for sure

Is it possible you had some sort of infection? I don't know what to tell you...

do you have other symptoms? Have you been feeling sick?

I agree with Rivka, it could just be semen...

Could it have been a large bit of EWCM? You can get fertile CM right before AF because there's a decrease in progesterone and an increase in estrogen.

Is EWCM white? I've never seen any... since I've been checking for it, I haven't been making it. I thought it was clear though, from the pictures in TCOYF.

EWCM is clear, but you can have a few kinds at once. but i would agree that you are a mystery
