Can you have EWCM but no O?

On Friday I had MAJOR amounts of EWCM, unbelievable amounts, off and on all day. Pretty mcuh all dried up on Saturday. But here it is Sunday and no temp rise yet. Wel it went up from 97.3 to 97.5, but I know that's not a rise like I need to O. But then I read somewhere that the day you actually O it only goes up a tiny bit and then the day after you O,it sky rockets. But if that is the case, adn I O today, my temp would shoot up tomorrow. But isn't today kind of late for me to be Oing when I had the major EWCM Friday and am basically dry today? I'm on my first cycle post-m/c, so is that messing w/my body? I just thought you didn't get EWCM unless the O fairy was almost here.

Well i take that back, I'm still having a little bit of EWCM today. This is confusing. I guess after I chart a few cycles, I'll have the hang of it. I just want my temp to shoot up so I can knwo I o'd! I just want to O and get AF so I can start ttc!

Hi! I am new at this but I thought I would include my chart to help out. As you can see, my temp dropped slightly during O and then began climbing. I was panicking because FF didn't tell me I Oed until 3 days later, (3 days of high temps). Now I am hoping my temps stay up. Not sure how long they're suppose to for O with no PG so if anyone else knows, please let me know! Good luck, Katy!

Hi Katy,

I asked the same question on the "ask an ob/gyn" board... The reponse was that "yes, it is possible to have enough hormones to produce ewcm but not quite enough to cause the egg to release..." I'm not temping anymore because I found it to be too nerve wracking... but I still monitor cervical mucus and cervical position... and both of those indicated to me that I did O... just not sure which day...lol

HTH, Julie
