Question

EWCM at 4 DPO

Hi there! I am currently 4 DPO and not exclusively trying at the moment however I still use OPKs to track ovulation. I am currently 4DPO according to when I got a positive OPK but I am STILL getting EWCM and cramping. Is this normal? Anyone else had this?

Did you confirm ovulation with a bbt temp rise? If not your body could've attempted an ovulation and had an LH surge, but didn't actually ovulate yet.

Definitely ovulated, not only did I have the LH surge but so also had my usual ovulation cramping and pimples. I'm no longer experiencing my regular O symptoms except the EWCM.

That does sound promising! I'm not sure what would cause ewcm at this point, aside from an estrogen imbalance/low progesterone (progesterone should be high enough to suppress ewcm production after ovulation.) Bbt would give helpful insight in that regard. Not to be a party pooper, but all of your normal symptoms could still happen in a failed ovulation as well! The only way to know for sure if you really did ovulate is ultrasound or observing bbt throughout your cycle.

I guess I just don't want to admit it could be failed ovulation. I've had a good opk progression a peak and then it's gone negative again and not come back so far. When I was pregnant with my son my EWCM never stopped from ovulation to birth so I'm still a little hopeful.
