I've tried to find this information by using Google, but with little success, so I thought I would try here and see if anyone has any insight for me...
Does a good amount of EWCM mean that you are successfully ovulating or does it happen in women that are annovulatory, too?
I get EWCM every cycle (even though my cycles are inconsistent and lengthy) and last month I also received a positive on my first OPK when I had EWCM, but did not conceive. I know that PCOS can trigger a positive on an OPK even if you didn't release an egg because of the large amount of follies releasing the LH hormone. However, I am still unclear as to whether or not EWCM is ALWAYS a sign that you are releasing an egg, or if EWCM can happen, but much like a false OPK positive, it can happen because of the rush of LH from the many follies at the time when you should be releasing an egg, but may not be.
I hope I worded that correctly. Oh, and as a little bit of information, no- I don't have an infection or anything medically wrong (other than PCOS) that would cause a large amount of fertile cervical fluid like that. I also see a temperature rise after I have EWCM for a few days.
My DH and I have been trying to conceive for 7 months and I just started Met (1000 mg a day) on August 31, 2007. I had EWCM and a high/soft/open cerivx from Sept 4-7, but decided not to use an OPK this month.
Thanks in advance for any information...
