month view of CM?

Can anyone give me a months overview of CM? I know it is meant to resemble egg white around the time of ov! but what about the rest of the month?
Thanks

  • Hi MrsMel,

    I found this site a while ago! It is quite graphic but really opened my eyes as to what was going on down there. Probably best not viewed before you have your tea image

    Hope it helps!

  • Here is an approximate fertility guide based on a 28-day cycle. There can be a slight chance of conception throughout your cycle as mans sperm can live inside a woman for as long seven days.

    Day 1-5
    Development Menstrual period
    Hormone levels Normal, FSH slight increase
    Body temperature Normal
    Cervical Secretions Period (usually no secretions)

    Day 6-9
    Development Relatively infertile phase
    Hormone levels Normal, Oestrogen begins to rise, FSH dips back
    Body temperature Normal
    Cervical Secretions Dry, no secretions

    Day 10 - 12
    Development Relatively Fertile
    Hormone levels Oestrogen rises steadily
    Body temperature Begins to drop
    Cervical Secretions Moist, sticky, white, cloudy


    Day 13-15
    Development FERTILE
    Hormone levels Strong rise in LH, FSH
    Body temperature Drops and rises sharply
    Cervical Secretions Wet, slippery, stretchy, clear
    Follicle/ Egg Peak fertile period- the egg is released from the ovary.


    Day 16-19
    Development Relatively Fertile
    Hormone levels LH, FSH drops back to normal, oestrogen levels out,
    Progesterone rises
    Body temperature Remains slightly higher than normal
    Cervical Secretions Moist, sticky, white, cloudy

    Day 20-28

    Development Infertile phase
    Hormone levels Oestrogen and Progesterone stay fairly high, eventually drop.
