Question about CM

Thanks nela for all the abbreviation and their meanings that was a great help in understanding what some of you are going through and different meanings.

My question is if there is a lot of discharge, I mean a lot, does that mean that you are ovulating, or pg or due for AF. Or is it none of these things.

Today makes it 33 days since last AF. All HPT come out - <IMG SRC=""> Doctor said to wait another month and if no AF come back and see him, this is really the first month off the pill, but i was off the pill for a month last year cause AF showed up in the middle of my cycle but it returned to normal the very next cycle.

This is the first cycle that has been over 28 days. I was thinking of waiting till next week to test again, but not sure which day would be good. What do you ladies think???? <IMG SRC="">

I posted most of this stuff on other threads but i thought would put all the information together and see what you wiser women came up with.

I really am at a loss, any help would be accepted with total gratitude.

Happy pregnancy to all <IMG SRC="">

Good luck to those still TTC, february is the romantic month

Here's to hoping <IMG SRC="">

Re: Question about CM

Hi Allusive - you sound like you are in the same boat as me, I went off jan 15 and tested negative today <IMG SRC="">

I wish I had something smart to offer but I think I am even more confused than ever about all this. With my last one I thought I was pg, took a test and saw the lovely 2 blue lines - I was just so sure the same thing happened again........

hugs to you

Re: Question about CM

Hi Allusive <IMG SRC="">

You're welcome! Just thought the newbies would be a bit confused about the acronyms <IMG SRC="">

OK, let's see...there's usually different types of discharge. It depends on the point where you are in your cycle. I usually get creamy right before ovulation, then lots of eggwhite the day before, actual day and day after ovulation. Then it suddenly dries up. I sometimes get some more fertile type CM a few days before AF is due. Everyone is different, but that seems to be my basic pattern. Some women get no CM but get pg EASILY!

Usually ovulation is accompanied by lots of CM (but, again, not always). The thing to do really would be to get into some serious charting! You can even do it online. I'm not allowed to post addresses, but just enter "BBT chart" on a search engine and you'll see! Also, try to get hold of "Taking Charge of your Fertility" by Toni Weschler. It's the book most people here are reading.

Remember that it may take a while for your body to get back to its regular cycles. Some people conceive 2 weeks after being off BCP, others take some time, again, everyone's different!. Charting will help you to understand what's going on . You are unique and your situation and body may not fall into the "usual" guidelines! 33 Days since last AF sounds OK if you've just come off the pill. Try to relax and let your body get back into the swing of things.

Also, very important: your cycle length may have changed in the years since you started the pill. It may have been 28 days before, but right now could be longer or shorter. I used to have a 28 day cycle, but now am veering towards a 24 day one! Give it time.

You may need some more time to have regular ovulation, so I'd listen to the doctor and try not to worry. If you really insist on testing, do so , but remember that you just came off the pill and this is not a normal cycle yet!
Hope this helped a bit. And don't worry!!!!!

Re: Question about CM

Coming of BC is tricky. My good friend got pregnant with her now 7 month old exactly 2 weeks after stopping the pill. She is now trying again, got off the pill in December, and hadn't had a period until last week. She thought she was pregnant again but kept getting the neg tests so she went to the doctor and he gave her some progestrone to induce her period to help her cycles along. Not only is it different from person to person but it's different from cycle to cycle with the same person.

Good luck.

Re: Question about CM

Thanks for the advice nela and I am going to listen to the doc and just wait. Its just that this same thing has happened before. Af showed up in the middle of my cycle and lasted for about 10days (which is abnormal cause usually its only 5 max) Then two weeks later when AF was due again, she showed up right on time, and i wasnt on any bc then.

That is the only reason I find this situation not so much worrying but strange. I have never really bled for two weeks straight so taking that into account I guess my cycle could be a little whacked.

OK............I'll wait the two weeks and see what happens. I never really bothered about charting as my bf and I were not all serious in getting pg, just thought if it happened it happened.

Thanks for the info about discharge, so it could be any number of things really. I guess I wait thanks again.

How are you feeling anyway. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Sorry for rambling <IMG SRC="">

Here's to hoping <IMG SRC="">

Re: Question about CM

Good decision, waiting. You never know after coming off bcps!
Thanks for asking about me! I'm feeling much better, although it's inevitable that I'm sad... It's hard to switch over to a different mind-set without going through some kind of pain. On the other hand, I'm also optimistic, as until this point I've gotten a clean bill of health <IMG SRC="">

I hope you are well otherwise and keeping your chin up! <IMG SRC=""> Nela.

Re: Question about CM

The discharge you want to look for that means your ovulating is clear, and the consistancy of raw egg whites i know this will sound gross but if you take your finger and insert it in your vagina and then press your thumb to that finger like your going to snap and slowly part the fingers if it clings like snot you are indeed ovulating!! THats how i concieved with my daughter.

Re: Question about CM

Thats the discharge I was having, and we have been BD this whole past week. I guess we wait and see AGAIN. It ok though, no stress, what is to be will be.

I was only explaining to my bf this morning that i thought I wass in the middle of my cycle and that about another ten days and AF will be here, in full force i imagine as then it will have been 40 days since last AF which is an absolute record for me.

At least since I got that discharge I now know what it means, i can predict best days to get pregnant i guess, and i know now that i'm not totally at a loss like i was last week.

Nela: Keep your chin, at least you now will have the newest and strongest antibodies. Just count the days one by one, each day gone is one step closer. Keep your chin up, im praying for you and DH, you both will make wonderful parents. <IMG SRC="">

Here's to hoping <IMG SRC="">
