I went to the doctor for my annual PAP and my results showed that I have BV. I have no idea how long this has been going on as I never had any symptoms! My question is, could this be affecting our chances of getting PG??

I've had the issue, in fact, I had the issue the month I found out I was pregnant and since than, I've had a yeast infection to top it off every 4 weeks. Awful! In any case, it shouldn't affect your fertility. He is right, it may or may not be more acidic in there but the increase of CM shouldn't be a concern. However, you're really only looking for one kind that helps the swimmers, egg white CM. The rest of the CM is acidic and not a good host to sperm. That's why they tell us we can only get pregnant the one time each month. In any case, the good news is that you have it cleared up and you're ready to go! :) HOpefully it doesn't come back!! GOOD LUCK!

Well, here's the thing...

Since April I haven't been getting EWCM... Just thick white CM. I have been totally confused about my cycles because I was using OPK's and when I got a positive I marked it in on my calender then exactly 14 days later AF arrived. But on the days I got my +OPK I still had no EWCM just the white stuff. I started using pre-seed in march and got a yeast infection that very month, 3 days before
