Post subject: Cervical fluid
Hi, I'm TTC for the first time. I have been checking and charting my cervical fluid since the first day of my last cycle (31/01) My predicted ovulation day is supposed to be tomorrow but my CF is still a bit white and pasty, not at all watery and egg white like.
Last month after what I thought was probably my ovulation time ie, after the 14th/15th my CF turned very thick and white wher as everything I read says it dries up after ovulation.
I'm thinking my CF might be slightly different because I have had about 3.5cm of my cervix removed for cervical cancer, thus leaving me .5cm.
Does anyone have any similar experiences or knows exactly where CF is produced. Is it the cervix its self??

I should be ovulating today but I got some ovulating test strips through the post this afternoon and I'm not. No sign of a LH surge so my chart obviously isn't like the average person. I didn't know until after my last period to look out for the egg white cervical mucus but thinking to last month I think I got it way after my predicted ovulation day.
Sounds like your slimey stuff may have been it!

I'm having trouble reading my CM. When its supposed to be like egg white (fertile ) its really quite white and creamy. Don't think I have ever had watery or stretchy CM. Then I thought maybe I wasn't 'collecting' enough to assess it properly but I don't think this is the case.
I've also had no positive OV tests either

hi im in the same boat as you ive been checking my cf and normally i do get the clear stretchy stuff but this month its not happened yet,ive also been charting my temp every morning and this morning i had a .3 deg rise in temp which would indicate ovulation but according to the ovulation tests ive been doing for last 6 days i havnt even had the surge yet. Im very confused im on day 16 now and have a cycle of between 28-32 days. Last cycle was 28 days and i started doing ovulation tests from day 11-17 and never got a positive once but still had a regular period i got the normal surge in temp as well last month but couldnt check my cf as had thrush so it was very creamy for a few days. So what im asking i suppose is has anyone else had problems with these ovulation tests as i never seem to be getting a positive result!!!

I've only been using the ov test strips for a month and nothing detected like I said. I'm due on onSunday so for the next cycle I'm going to test from day 6 (should ovulate around the 14th) I'm sure they do work if you follow the instructions. I think I might be drinking too much tea and diluting my urine
On a different note, I was speaking to a friend last night who has 3 boys. She said to have sex every day from day 6 to 14. Obviously worked for her

ive still not had this positive ovulation test yet,ive even got the egg white cf today but still no lh surge. Its really doing my head in now as i really should of had a positive result by now, my temp went from 36.3 to 36.6 2 days ago and this morning was 36.5 so i had the rise in temp but no egg white cf and today a slightly lower temp but the correct cf but still no lh surge im very very confused
it all gets so frustrating when you want it so much
