*TMI WARNING* Trying to understand cervical mucus

So I am trying to understand this so I will share TMI here.

So from what I understand you want to have a lot of white discharge correct?

I had a lot of discharge which was enough to wet underwear and pants slightly BUT it was more clear than white. We DTD two days in a row and have not for one. Now discharge is far less (not even wet underwear) but much whiter and thicker.

So which one would be more likely to indicate ovulation. High quantity or white color but much less?

You want egg-white type of cervical mucous. Not necessarily white in color...

I think I'm correct is saying that the whiter, thicker, less wet (basically a little drier) is what happens right after you O. I read that once you've Oed it will start to dry up fairly quickly, which would cause it to thicken & become more opaque/white. HTH

Are you afraid to touch it?

Don't worry, it's autocorrect, I know how to type in English. ;p

The clear stuff is what you want. If you put it between your fingers and pull them apart, it will stretch pretty far. You want raw "egg white" consistancy, so clear and stretchy is fertile, not white.

Re: *TMI WARNING* Trying to understand cervical mucus

Yep, clear and stretchy. I usually have the thicker white fluid both before and after O so don't assume you have O'd if there is still the thicker white fluid. I thought it's also considered fertile. I know we DTD for both types, JIC.

It's kind of like when you cry and your nose runs. It's clear.

Good illustration..

This month we dtd on day14 in the am, and that afternoon when I used the bathroom it was VERY prominent.. a big glob of snotty like clear stuff on the tissue.

Just found out we're pg, so we must have JUST hit it.. it was the last day this month we dtd.

After that, by the next day I had to check my cervix, and it there wasn't much cm.. but what there was was white and globby and dense.

hth..
