Should I be concerned? Ovulation pains but no "egg white" CM....
 
Hi ladies - I'm a little concerned about the egg white CM being a sign of ovulation. I most definitely had ovulation cramps this month on CD 13, but did not notice any change in the consistency of my CM. I did, however, notice it was a little more abundant than usual.

Are all women supposed to get the egg white CM, or is it one of those "every woman is different" things? Should I be concerned?

Watery CM is also a good sign. This sounds strange, but generally fertile CM will make a round spot in your undies, not a line or streak. Some women do have to test inside to determine if it is stretchy like raw egg-whites.

Hope this helps!

Thanks GoldenMom. I did the "inside test" and it doesn't seem to be an "egg white" consistency. Does that matter?

Since you noticed more CM, I would assume that this is your fertile CM. I've never noticed eggwhite CM on myself, but my doctor has commented on it during exams that happen during O.

Good luck!

Thanks GoldenMom. I promised myself I would have a more relaxed 2WW this month, and here I go! Already worrying!

Thanks for your help. Ladies like you make this process so much easier. When I start talking to my husband about the "egg white consistency of my CM" he looks at me like I'm crazy!
