    Default Cervical mucus/ovulation query

    Hi everyone

    I have been tracking my cm for a few months now and I have noticed that the egg white consistancy lasts for three days only. Is there a way to determine exactly when I am ovulating?

    I have been using ovulation predictor tests but so far I never receive a positive test - but I must be ovulating because I have egg white cm?

    Any advice would be appreciated. I am trying to conceive a baby boy hence I am trying to get as close to ovulation as possible.

    I have read that you ovulate on the last day of ewcm. so once u get that I would keep dtd til u dont get anymore ewcm.

    If u are worried about whether or not you're ovulating, you can get a blood test done on cd21 of your cycle (if u have a common 28day'er cycle). You would need a blood test referral from your doctor though.

    Good luck

    Not necessarily I'm afraid. I used to get EWCM but there were months I didn't ovulate. I would highly recommend you get the clearblue digital OPK as there is no guess work involved. You get a smiley face if you're ovulating or a blank face if not. I was using IC OPK's for 10 months and never got a full on positive result. On my second month of using the clearblue digital ovulation predictor, I got my BFP!

    Thanks for your feedback ladies. I will look at purchasing the clear blue tests.

    I am using cheap kits off the internet for the past couple of months and so far I have not had a positive result.

    If I receive a positive ovulation test, that means I will ovulate in 24-48 hours right? Not that I am ovulating immediately?

    From the time I got my positives to the time I ovulated was usually between 12-24 hours but everyone is different.
