How do i no my cycle?
If you learn to track your cervical mucus, you may be able to predict ovulation before it happens, and time sex accordingly.
Some women may feel squeamish about checking their own cervical mucus, but its really an empowering way to monitor your bodys changes and help you get pregnant. Ovulation and Cervical Mucus
As ovulation approaches, your cervical mucus (sometimes abbreviated on BBT charts as CM) changes from a consistency not-so-kind to sperm, to a more fertile variety that sperm can survive and swim through better. Right after ovulation, the cervical mucus changes back to the less fertile kind.
While everyones body is different, the general changes that cervical mucus go through are dry or sticky, to creamy, to wet, to a raw egg white consistency, and then, back to dry and sticky.
When your cervical mucus is in the wet or egg white consistency stage, ovulation is approaching. This is the best time to have sex, if you want to get pregnant.
How to Check Your Cervical Mucus:
First, wash and dry your hands well. 2.
Find a comfortable position, either by sitting on the toilet, squatting, or standing up and putting one leg up on the bathtub edge or toilet seat. 3.
Reach one finger inside your vagina; your index or middle finger is probably best. (Be careful not to scratch yourself.) Depending on how much cervical mucus youre producing, you may not need to reach so far, but getting a sample from near your cervix is ideal. 4.
Remove your finger from your vagina and observe the consistency of whatever mucus you find. Do this by both looking at the mucus and rolling what you find between two fingers (usually your thumb and index finger). Also, try pressing your fingers together and then slowly moving them apart. * If what you find seems sticky, or findings are scant, youre probably not ovulating yet. * If what you find is creamy, ovulation may be coming, but not just yet. * If what you find is wet, watery, and slightly stretchy, ovulation is very likely close. Find time for some baby-making sex. * If what you find is very wet, stretches between your fingers for an inch or more, and resembles raw egg white, your cervical mucus is very fertile. Ovulation is right around the corner, and now is the ideal time for intercourse. 5.
If you are charting your BBT, you should mark down on your chart your cervical mucus findings. Abbreviations often used are S for sticky, C for creamy, W for wet, and EW for egg-white cervical mucus.
Dont check your cervical mucus during or right after sex, or when youre feeling sexually aroused. *
You can also check your cervical mucus by looking at the toilet paper or your underwear, but sometimes you can get a better sample by reaching inside, as described above. *
If you have trouble finding anything, checking your cervical mucus after a bowel movement may be easier. (Dont forget to wash your hands well.) *
Some women, especially those with PCOS, have several patches of fertile-looking cervical mucus throughout their cycle. If this is your situation, predicting ovulation by tracking cervical mucus might not work well for you. Taking your BBT will help you pinpoint which patch of fertile mucus was related to ovulation.
