EWCM question - maybe tmi, but confused!

Just a quick one - I understand all about EWCM and that it is a fertility sign. However, when you "check" it, is it, erm, just there in your knickers, or do you have actually to put your finger up to feel it, as it were?!

thanks for your help! Bumps x

you can do it either way. But there might not b enough CM in your knickers to tell so may need to try the latter option.

i agree it can be hidden inside so you would have to fish about for it iyswimsmile the best way to actually find ewcm though is(TMI sorryblush) to put 2 fingers in and make like a scissors kind of action with the 2 fingers and pull them away once the 'scissors' are closed. you will find that the ewcm is sort of trapped between the 2 fingers. otherwise it tends to be too slippery to find with one fingerblush but a good tip nontheless it helped me find my own when i was looking exclusively for this. (i temp and cm watch nowsmile) have you been TTC long?smile

Me too queeny- I found a website that charts temp & CM and predicts when ovulation should be- Not worked so far mind but still....
Got ovulation tests to use this month 2 never tried them b4 so hope I have a bit of luck. Ive been trying since last dec wot about u?
Bumps do u just check CM or temp too?

When I was TTciing I found black knickers were handy!
Agree that 2 fingers are more reliable to catch it.

Good luck and take your folic acid!!

Thanks everyone - v. helpful indeed!

I'm wearing black knickers and Queeny's "scissors" suggestion worked an absolute treat! I think now is the time to get down to it, given the evidence!

It's our first time TTC - only on cycle #1 so trying not to go OTT with fertility monitoring for the moment, but decided I may as well check EWCM.

Thanks again

No point in stressing temp & stuff already cause it wont help matters.

Good luck hun x
