I'm currently on cd32 and my cycles have been getting longer over the past couple of months, have done 2 hpt over last couple of days both negative so don't think I'm pg this month. I've been thinking about ovulation and stuff and beginning to wonder if I'm Reading the signs completely wrong[mmm]

I have been having what I believe to be ewcm around cd12-14, sorry if tmi but it's clear not massive amount but stringy but breaks easily, however for the last couple of months have noticed thick cm around cd20, this is more stringy but not clear more opaque, last for fewer days and only comes out when wiping, my cycles have been around 40 days so could this actually be ewcm????

It sounds like it and it would make sense in the context of your long cycles. The presence of fertile mucus on CD20 would generally speaking rule out OV before CD20.

It's not uncommon to have a bit just before AF arrives but that's not what's happening here. Opaque is quite normal.

I don't envy you on a 40 day cycle, must be pretty frustrating.

Not bad, I'm certainly learning patience!

You could also try temping? That's what I did with my long cycles.

Originally I thought I had a long luteal phase, like you have thought but when I temped I realised I was ovulating about 14 days before the end of my cycle- like people on a 28 day cycle might do.

Thanks astro have considered temping but ds2 still gets up through the night so not sure it would be accurate, I've sort of resigned myself to the fact it may take forever!! I've just downsized my car so it will probably happen lol x
