My partner and I have been TTC for 6 cycles now with no luck. I'm 33 and he is 39. I have been tracking my periods for the last 2 years and during the last 6 cycles been tracking my cervical mucas. I thought that when your cervical mucas is egg white / watery that's when you are ovulating. Is that correct?
Reason why I ask is I went to the doctor yesterday and asked for hormone tests etc to make sure everything is ok given our ages and it's been 6 cycles. He said to do some books tests for progesterone and estrogen which should be tested at time of ovulation, a week before period is due.
My question is if ovulation is when cervical mucas is egg white / watery, which for me is around day 10-12 why am I doing blood tests around day 19? I sometimes wonder how much knowledge a gp has on fertility and reproduction.
Am I wrong? Is he right? Suggestions?
