    Default ovulation test positive, how long until egg white MC?

    Hi all,
    we've been trying to conceive for a while now and I've been checking my cervical mucus this cycle. I tested positive on the ovulation test last night and I was wondering how long do I have to wait until my CM changes to egg white?
    is it a very gradual thing? how many days do you get the egg white CM for?

    any advice greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    Hi cazza,

    Not everybody gets EWCM! Some months I get more than others and usually get it before the +ve OPK, though on O day as well. You can look into taking Evening Primrose Oil (pills) from CD1 until +ve OPK which helps increase CM, or you could use a sperm-friendly lubricant, like Preseed, which mimics EWCM.

    Hope it helps - good luck!

    Ovulation itself normally happens 12-36 hours after the pos OPK. I find I get EWCM about 2 days before I get the pos test.

    But as angel said, not every woman gets it. It's meant to aim the swimmers to get their destination lol, but I know of women that never get it and have gotten pg so it's not crucial.
