    Default TMI thread - how do you check your cervical mucus?

    Hi ladies,

    Sorry for the TMI thread, but how exactly do you check you cervical mucus? Do you just stick you finger in and see what comes out?? Please enlighten me!

    Hmmm, SC is having trouble posting links it seems. Just try googling "how to check cervical mucus" and you should get several good hits that explain it in depth. I know Fertility Friend (fertilityfriend.com has an ebook under their Charting FAQs), free for download that has a whole section on how to check CM. But basically yes, you stick a clean finger(s) up there and sweep your cervix to see/feel what type of CM you have that day.

    Fertility Friend has a great e-book free for download; http://www.fertilityfriend.com/Faqs/...cal-fluid.html

    You can also read about it here:

    But basically, you stick a clean finger(s) in and sweep your cervix to see what type of CM you have that day.

    I've never really had to sweep to check it. When I have EWCM, it's all over the TP when I go to the bathroom. But I have have read that you are supposed to sweep inside your vagina with two fingers and spread your fingers apart and check CM for stretchiness.

    Hope I made myself clear.

    I wash my hands and then run my finger along the lip on my cervix, after checking it of course. Then put the 2 ingers together and pull apart. check to see how much it stretches.
