    Ok, I've been checking cm and cervix position every day since AF stopped, I don't get any cm when I wipe so I use my middle finger to get a sample while checking my cervix. I would describe my cm as being watery, clear and wet. Is this normal, am I actually considered dry, is there any specific qualities to the more fertile watery cm? I'm asking because I've read online that after AF I should be dry and this confused me because here I've thought I've been having watery cm... Any insight please, thank you!

    I found this information online and I guess I was dry but if it wasn't for me checking inside I'd always be "dry" still confused..

    Thanks for posting this, I have just asked on another thread if it was normal before ovulation or not! I thought it might have been left over preseed but now I defo think water cm

    I think the preseed dries up fairly quickly, I don't notice it anymore after we dtd. I use 2g internally and about 1g on OH. When I go to the restroom after there's a little leakage but it seems to only be "the deposit" and not the preseed. What's your cd?

    Ok just FYI for anyone else with cm questions that peak in here.. I'm honestly still a little confused but I've found literature online that says the vagina is a mucus membrane so there will always be a certain level of moisture. To test internally you should use two fingers to get a cm sample and spread your fingers apart to see how it responds. And if you're still uncertain you can use a glass of water to see what happens, normal moisture will dissolve while cm will stay present as a slippery substance on your fingers. Hopefully this helps someone, I'm just waiting for ewcm because Watery cm baffles me.
