I don’t always notice EWCM during my ovulation..does everyone get/notice this around the date they O? From my temps it sure looks to me like I O’d on CD16 (despite FF saying CD9)- does it HAVE To be confirmed with EWCM? Am I still waiting for a potential O or do you think it happened on CD16?

For me personally, I very rarely got EWCM. Lots of watery (which is still considered fertile) but not a lot of stretchy CM.

I didn’t and we successfully got pregnant!

I never really noticed much of it at all and definitely had times when there was none at all. I purchased some pre-seed, which can help mimick that, but we didn’t use it when we got our BFP.

Some people don’t get much EWCM. Try drinking more water, sometimes that helps… good luck!

I get EWCM a lot (more often than healthy). It’s really weird too b/c I have PCOS that should dry me out, but apparently not. It varies from woman to woman. Are you making sure you’re wiping before you urinate to check for CM? A lot of women pee away their cm if they don’t wipe before urinating to check for it or it’ll float in the toilet and they don’t really understand it as ewcm.

I didn’t notice that I got it until I was actively looking for it! I had read about it when I was stalking the boards but it wasn’t until we officially started TTC that I noticed a difference between EWCM and other CM…TMI??
I read somewhere that you should base BD’ing on when you see EWCM over a positive OPK, that EWCM is the best indicator. Haven’t seen that anywhere since though so I’m starting to doubt myself….

i believe the EWCM is what is supposed to protect and help the sperm travel to the egg, so that seems like it would be really important but as posters above said they didn’t and still got pregnant. I did read in several places drinking a cup of green tea really helps product EWCM so you could try that.
