Wtf is going on with my EWCM?!

First day of last AF was Aug 31, I'm currently on CD 22 of a fairly regular 30/31 day cycle. According to Ovia my fertile window was from 12th-17th sep. Unfortunately though we only DTD once during this time as DH was ill, on 12th. Then on 13th -14th I had EWCM with some spotting, which I read was a good sign of ovulation. After this my CM dried up somewhat, as it usually does after ovulation, However suddenly in the last two days I have had EWCM again- and lots of it! Wtf is going on? Does anyone have experience of this and could it be a sign of pregnancy?

I have no advice but just wanted to say I'm in the same position as you except my first day of AF was 1st sept. I usually ovulate around day 15 (i use bbt and ovk) but I have loads of ewcm today on day 21. Weird!

Thanks for replying smile it's weird right? I don't understand it!

Still having EWCM this evening (I'm in China so ahead of you in the UK) but it's white rather than clear. It's loads as well - makes me feel wet constantly (sorry TMI) any thoughts?

Don't want to get your hopes up but this could be your month. I thought I was out and had gotten my ov date wrong with youngest dc because I got ewcm in the lead up to when I was expecting af. Waited another fortnight, no af turned out I was about 6/7 weeks pregnant

Ooh holdback that's exciting! Can I ask how long you waited before testing? Did you literally wait 2 weeks? I am finding it hard to wait!

I randomly had a load of ewcm around day 21 the month before last. No idea why. I didn't have sex that cycle.

If it's white then it's creamy - Ovia calls it school glue.

I get this after ovulation. Sometimes so much I have to wear a menstrual cup. I get it on non pregnant cycles (sorry!) but if it's out of the ordinary for you it might be a good sign? Fingers crossed.

Bertie it's not school glue type though because it's the texture of EWCM, stretchy and slippery, but white instead of transparent.

Strange, but if it's white I normally class it as creamy type CM.

Yes. I have pcos so assumed I'd gotten my ov wrong and waited a further 2 weeks before it eventually clicked that I ought to poas! It might not be but it's the only time I've noticed that happening for me anyway. Fingers crossed for you

Day 23 and still getting lots of CM, it is still white but the consistency of EWCM so I'm a bit confused! Also have sore nipples but maybe I'm imagining in my desire to symptom -spot... AF not due until next Fri - when do you think is the earliest I could test?

I had the e month. Usually very regular cycles but had no cm at all round normal ov date then day 18/19/20 was getting clear ewcm and positive opks. Very weird!

Bumping for traffic - really want to know if anyone else had this as a sign of pregnancy and when I should test. I'm getting pretty obsessed by the idea of a BFP after two miscarriages this year sad

10dpo is the earliest I recommend anyone test. Then every 48 hours until positive or period.

I get this and it's just the progesterone peaking I think... never had a BFP in my life so certainly hasn't been a sign of pregnancy for me :/
