    Default Ovulation Query!

    Hey everyone!

    Just registered on bubhub as my parnter and I have recently started TTC. I am getting my head around ovulation dates and cervical mucus etc but have a query I'm hoping someone can relate to!

    So, yesterday I had a positive result on my ovulation test, despite being a day earlier than predicted. However, when i check my CM, it's quite milky. I know it should be 'egg white' like when ovulationg so I'm a little confused!

    Can anyone relate to this?

    Default Re: Ovulation Query!

    Hi I just went through the same thing a few days ago.I bought a opk and did some reading on other web sites to.I got confused between pros and cons.but anyway .I stuck to the instructions on the kit.tired for 4 days and got a positive result on day 4. To be honest I haven't kept track of my period for more than a month so was picking my memory for my fertile days. So I did the opk 1day before the instructions say and my mc was milky too but on day 4 got a positive but still mc was inbetween milky egg white if that makes scene.so guess I'll have to wait and see if its worked lol! I would say stick with the opk instructions and try not to stress . Ya I know that's a hard one for women lol.and besides you can always try again month.I will know in 8 days.I.m so excited!
    Hope this helped. Let me know how it goes.

    Thanks @newtoaussie! (I am also fairly new to aussie! lol!) Yeah the kits are meant to be pretty good. I'm also using the 'my days' app which is pretty good. it calculates your fertile days etc.. This is where I got the ovulating day prediction from so hopefully between that and the OPK I'm on the right track! Thankfully not stressed yet, just very excited at the prospect of trying for a baby! Oooh 8 days isn't long but it will feel like 8 weeks!! Haha! Let me know how you get on!! M

    Hi mgordon and welcome!

    I am no expert as I've only just started the journey myself, but I've done a bit of reading and I do know that not all women actually get egg white cervical mucus when they are most fertile. Every woman's CM is different although generally dry/watery CM generally indicates an infertile phase whereas more copious amounts of wetter/slippier/sticky/egg white CM generally indicates your more fertile phase. I don't think it matters if it is milky or clear either!

    As far as I understand you are supposed to track your CM for a couple of months to understand your own CM and what it does at each stage, as your CM at various times isn't going to be identical to another woman's. You may not even get perfectly EWCM but you may have a certain type of CM when you are ovulating that is similar.

    But if you got a positive on your OPK that's a good sign!! Yay!

    Thanks elswyth, that certainly puts my mind at ease!! There are so many conflicting articles out there, it's very difficult to know what to believe! Time will tell I guess!! xx

    Just keep having sex during your ovulation window, try not to worry too much about CM lots of things can change the appearance of that

    Yes next Tuesday is one week. The Ptest says you can detect in 7to 10 days. So impatient now.but this is our 1st proper ttc. Hoping I'll be lucky on the first go.
