Does CM dry up immediately after O (the egg pops out) or after a couple hours or 24 hours, after the egg is or isn't fertilized, etc.

I am pretty sure that it starts drying up and getting creamy the next day or so after O.


Again...I'm soo jealous that you O'd already!! lucky!! good luck on test day!! :)

i don't really know for sure. one might ovulate in the evening and be dry by morning, kwim? i think it is within several hours, but that is just a guess, from my own experience. On a chart, since you mark a day as EWCM even if you had one patch of it, it alwasy looks like you dry up the next day, but you might dry up the same day. you just dont mark it like that on a chart, make sense?

this last cycle, i think i ove'ed in the morning around 11 am, and by evening i noticed i was dry again.

Ya, it makes complete sense that the hormonal change would happen immediately , i just think that there is still residual CM in the vagina, so coitus that day of ovulation is still in the fertile window!!
