Okay bees….. so today all day long I’ve had what looks like small bits of EWCM that is very brown. There have also been patches of brighter red tinged wet discharge. I am on CD 32 and FF has not yet confirmed ovulation (when usually my cycles are 30-31 days). I also got an almost-positive OPK both this AM and this afternoon and have had what feel like period cramps but lighter all day.
Has anyone else had bloody EWCM? What does it mean?

Me! I just had a streak of blood in my EWCM on CD13, and freaked out, but it coincides with ovulation so I think it is ovulation spotting for me. This caused by dropping estrogen, the egg being released and rupturing the follicle, or mean fairies — no one knows for sure. Could you also be ovulating, but late? Or maybe this is the start of a period in an anovulatory cycle?

MsBelka31: I think there is a really good chance I am ovulating late! I’m on FF and it hasn’t been able to confirm ovulation yet. So you are saying it could be the result of an egg being released? That would be a good sign! I was starting to think I would never ovulate haha!

This is actually considered the most fertile CM.
Also, many OPKs can be used as pregnancy tests, so if you’re not 100% sure you HAVEN’T ovulated yet, it might not hurt to pee on the OTHER kind of stick to rule that out.

hollyberry4: I am not a doctor… Yes, theoretically you could be ovulating late and that was your clue. I had a 47 day cycle back in January, so I ovulated on CD 31. what is the OPK and temps showing now?

hollyberry4: I looked at your chart (linked on the charters thread)….you have CH’s CD24 and lots of BD’ing right before….have you POAS? Its still kinda early if you’re 9DPO but you never know & from what I understand, OPK’s will show positive if you are pregnant. FF has a hard time confirming O if you miss a bunch of temps or temp at different times.

Temp this AM was higher than it’s been over the last several days. I took a wondfo pregnancy test this morning and got a BFN. Still having a bit of the red “spotting” today and some cramping. Here is my chart:http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/hollyberry41
Edit: and all the recent open circles are from testing not exactly at 6:30 AM… but it has been within a half hour so it should be pretty accurate.
