  • Yes. It goes in phases. After you have your period, you could be really dry. Then it goes to "sticky", which is kinda like sticky boogers; it doesn't feel wet, but it's there. Then to "creamy", which is like lotion in look and feel; not a lot of it, but getting "wetter". Then "watery", which is where it starts to feel a bit wet and when you start to possibly be fertile; there's more of it, and it's clear and a bit stretchy. Than "egg-white", which is the most fertile; it looks and feels just like egg whites, it's thick and very stretchy. This usually indicates that ovulation is going to happen in the next few days, but it's possible to have egg-white CM and then not ovulate. The only way you can be sure that you ovulated is to chart your basal body temperature as well. After you ovulate, the CM dries up significantly, but it can still be sticky or creamy. Then it starts all over again.
