    Default Cervical mucus

    Hi ladies - BIG TMI post here :-)

    Sorry if this has already been asked but I have just gone off the pill and looking to monitor my cycles by only monitoring my CM and bodily signs.

    Silly question, but can you have two types of CM at once? Or 3 types?

    Eg, can you have thick white lotiony mucus with some EWCM.

    Also how exactly do you check? Do you check with 1 finger or 2... Do you push down when checking.

    Sorry ladies, very new to this 😳

    Yes you can have two types at once or a weird inbetween/combination of two. I usually go by the more fertile type (ie. If you have creamy cm with some ewcm I will record the eggwhite). I usually check just the outside or will check it when I check my cp.

    You're looking to see if the really thin stretchy clear wet mucus is there and when there's the most of it. You will have transitional days where the mucous is whiter or gummy or thick...but think sperm slippery dip...that's what you want. It will be the clearest, thinnest (wettest), slipperiest of your mucuses. There's a type of mucus that's very stretchy and clear but also very thick and gummy - thats not the fertile one.

    You can fish sound inside or check at the vaginal opening- but i suggest fishing around will ensure you're getting a solid idea of the conditions in your vagina. Clean fingers of course.

    Test it any way you want - you're just comparing or to other days and other mucuses...and you're looking for ridiculous stretchiness and thinness. Soon you'll be an expert in your own mucus so just explore for a few months and it will become more obvious to you what you're looking for.
