    Default Mucus. Asking for TMI lol

    Ok. I've been through temp charting and lots opks, but have never paid much attention to the whole mucus piece. A couple of questions. When should it occur on my chart? Is it as important as temps to chart?

    And,
    What does EWCM mean?? I've seen it everywhere but not sure what it could stand for.

    Does something like pre-seed help if you use it around ovulation because it is like the mucus?

    Do the old wives tales of lots of water and mucinex (guafeniesin (sp??)) actually help?

    EWCM will look like egg whites (hence the abbreviation) and be super stretchy. You should have EWCM around your ovulation. The mucous piece, while gross, is a primary fertility indicator as much as OPKs are

    Water does help, as does preseed. Preseed is the only sperm friendly lube out there that I know of and will help if you're not having much EWCM. As for the mucinex, I'll let you know. I'm trying it for the first time this month. GL!

    EWCM is the baby-making gold, much like the consistency of egg whites, and can be stretched between your fingers. I very rarely get EWCM, and got pregnant on our first cycle using preseed.

    As important as temping is for charting, monitoring your CM is considered a very important part of charting. The combination of temping and CM will give you a very clear idea of when you O. Basically, when you see EWCM, find your man and BD!

    Staying well hydrated is important in regards to producing fertile CM.

    Ok. I know i've seen that before. But I was pretty sure i am mostly not ovulating. Is it possible to get the mucus without ovulation?

    That, I don't know, maybe someone else can answer that for you. I don't really get EWCM, perhaps due to the fact that I hardly ever drink anything. I'm never well hydrated.
