The past 3-5 days I’ve had a lot of CM (which is pretty unusual for me) with EWCM for the past 3 days or so. As soon as the CM started I’ve been using OPKs with nothing close to a positive result. What the heck is going on?
A little background: I have long cycles with my O date normally around CD 20-24. Today I’m on CD 14. I’m also taking a Maca supplement which should increase the amount of CM, but this is cycle 2 and I saw little results the first cycle using it.

@cant.wait.to.be.mrs.d: while EWCM is the most fertile of CM… your fertile days are not the only times it can show up. I had some during my TWW last cycle.
also… you only get positive OPK for about 12 hours. and not everybody has a slow build up. that means… you can have a VERY negative with no line at all… and then have your positive the next day.
you may be getting close to your O date. Go ahead and BD away. Even if you aren’t close to O, it’s still great lubricant for sex.

Last cycle I got EWCM two days before my +OPK (the + was also O day for me). This cycle I’m following the exact same pattern of temps and signs, and I got EWCM two days ago and a much darker than usual OPK last night. I expect to get my + today.
In short, the positive OPK and EWCM don’t have to occur on the same day.

Thanks for the help ladies! It just threw me off that it is here a week before expected! I hope this means my O is coming soon 🙂
