Usually, you should get fertile egg white discharge for one or two days before you ovulate. These are your most fertile days, and if you want to conceive, have sex when you see it. It’s also possible to have EWCM for up to five days before ovulation. Or, you might get it for only one day.
Can you get pregnant the day after EWCM?
In numerous studies, tracking EWCM and having intercourse on the peak production day is one of the most reliable methods of timing fertility. Pregnancy rates following intercourse on the day of peak EWCM reach 38% with a decrease to <20% for intercourse on the day before or after this peak.
Can sperm survive before EWCM?
Within the EWCM, sperm can survive for up to 5 days due to their texture and pH, which are protective for sperm longevity. The EWCM is clear, slippery and stretchy in character and is noticeably distinguishable from other phases of cervical mucus because it literally takes the appearance of an egg white.
How do you know when ovulation is over?
As you get close to ovulation, your cervical mucus will become copious, clear and slippery—like egg whites. It stretches between your fingers. Once your discharge becomes scant and sticky again, ovulation is over.
When is the best time to conceive after a positive ovulation test?
The three days immediately after a positive test represent the best time to have intercourse to increase the probability of getting pregnant. Ovulation generally occurs a day or two after the LH surge.
How long does an egg survive after ovulation?
After ovulation the egg lives for 12 to 24 hours and must be fertilised in that time if a woman is to become pregnant.
What kind of CM indicates pregnancy?
During the first weeks of a pregnancy, cervical mucus may change in color and consistency. You may notice stickier, white, or yellow mucus, known as leucorrhea. As your pregnancy progresses, your vaginal discharge may continue to change.
What happens after ovulation if pregnant?
If the egg released during ovulation is fertilized, it’s an early step toward becoming pregnant. If the egg was fertilized by a sperm cell when you ovulated, the fertilized egg will transform into a zygote. Eventually, the zygote will travel down the fallopian tubes, making its way to becoming a morula or a blastocyst.
