If your day 21 test doesn't need to be repeated then you ovulated 100%. I know this because recently I had a day 21 test, I hadn't ovulated, so the test was repeated on day 28 which showed I had ovulated. Don't worry, I never notice any EWCM anymore. I don't think you produce as much as you get older. The clinic may also test your Day 3 FSH levels to check that you still have good ovarian reserve (how many eggs left in your ovaries). I'm sure all will be well. Good luck! x

Probably means things are fine. The day21 test is to test if you've ovulated, usually they'd retest if levels are low to check they didn't mistime it - if they did it too early levels may not have been up to peak yet. So having it done a little late shouldn't be a problem as I think levels stay high until your period starts. I don't think you need to worry about this- I'm sure you are worrying about other things too so tick this one off the list!

I would appreciate some thoughts to get me through the next couple of weeks.

My partner and I (both 38) are paying to have a full fertility MOT.

Last week I had a couple of blood tests including the Day 21 Progesterone test. I then had an unusually early period (normally 27 days... This cycle was 25). So I got my period three days after the test.

Just received a message from the clinic to say they have my results and they don't need to re-test.

Anyone know whether this is likely to mean things are hopeless, or things are ok? We see the consultant in two weeks after I have a Hycosy next week.

Background info.... I have been pregnant before. I don't seem to notice EWMC anymore... But I don't really monitor it. I do have a brownish 'bleed' about 3 days before my actual period. My periods aren't overly painful.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
