EWCM during period???
Sun, 07-11-2010 - 1:38pm
I had my first period in 9 years (as I was on depo provera and my last injection was in dec) that started on June 7th. I didn't have EWCM (egg white cervical mucus) at all, so I am assuming I did not ovulate. My second period started on July 8th and for the last two days, I have had EWCM mixed in with my period. I've been doing research and I can't find any information on this. Could this really mean that I am fertile right now? Or that I won't be fertile after my period? Not too sure if my system is a little messed up because if the depo and even though I am having a period, it may take months for me to be period.

It's possible to have multiple patches of fertile CM throughout your cycle, as it is possible to O but not notice any fertile CM. Are you checking your CM internally or externally? Even if you don't see anything when you wipe, there could still be some good stuff hanging out on your cervix.

Are you positive the EWCM is actually cervical mucus and not menstrual tissue or other vaginal discharge?

As I mentioned above, fertile CM can show up multiple times throughout your cycle so while it's possible that you could have an early O you might also be waiting a bit longer. (Not very helpful, I know.) Are you tracking your secondary fertility signs (such as cervical position) or using OPKs? These additional things will be helpful to use in tandem with your CM to determine your O date.
