    Ok my af is pretty irregular at the moment and have been reading that you can chart your cm to give you a rough idea where you are in your cycle.

    Can anyone explain what cm means what?
    Eg like watery cm means? Etc.

    CM = cervical mucus
    EWCM = egg white cm, consistency is llike raw egg whites, is fertile and comes right before and on ovulation
    watery = like water, very fertile, comes before ewcm

    however its not reliable. i have ewcm every other week in my cycle because i dont ovulte properly. the only sure way to know if you ovulate is to temp x

    Thanks haylower.

    I usually dont get very much (sorry if tmi) but yesterday noticed EWCM and today slightly more watery. I am using opk to pin point ovulation but only started using them yesterday and am on cd 40 so may have missed it this month. Opk was bfn yestrday.

    It can be fairly reliable once you know what you're looking for but can take a few months to get to know your own pattern.
