When all the mucus is gone does that mean ovulation is over?

  • Typically, yes. There are extenuating circumstances though. Your body may start producing fertile fluid in preparation of ovulation, but a stressful event (such as moving or travel) can cause your body to delay ovulation. Also, breastfeeding can give you "false starts" because the prolactin produced by nursing suppresses estrogen which is necessary for ovulation to occur. The only true way to determine if ovulation has passed is if you notice a temperature shift on your chart.

  • usually yes. The pattern "normally" goes like this
    nothing, sticky, creamy, watery EW, then back creamy and can go back to sticky depending on your body. But usually once the fertile CM is gone then you prob already ovulated and therefore your body stopped preparing to accept sperm. But if you BD the day after you still have a small chance of catching the egg. GL momma!
