Hi. I'm not on this board much, although I've been around IV for years. I just have two questions that I haven't been able to answer through the internet. I've been charting and using NFP for bc and ttc for 7 years now, with success in both areas.
Question 1: A few days after ovulating, I sometimes have stretchy cm for a day or so. It doesn't seem like EWCM to me, since mine is usually clear and wet and there's a lot of it. This is drier, gummier, and opaque. However, I can still get an inch or two of stretch out of it, which makes me wonder what it is. I've noticed it during my last 3 cycles, but not before that.
Question 2: When I first began charting, my LPs were 12-13 days long. As the years have passed, they've gotten shorter. It took 5 months to concieve my son, and I blame a lot of that on short LPs. He's two now, and since I started charting again 15 months ago, my LPs have varied from 7-15 days. They're usually 8-11 days, with a couple of wildcards thrown in sometimes. The internet tells me this is a symptom of PCOS, but I don't have any other symptoms. I'm in very good health, with the same habits, supplements, and exercise routine I've had for years.
Any ideas? Any other info you need? I'm not panicking over either question. It would just be nice to know what's going on. TIA!
