I've been told that im not ovulating, but every month I still have clear Cervical Mucus, Is this normal when your not ovulating, any advice would be great

Who told you that you were not ovulating? You CM will change throughout your cycle depending on hormones.

I have PCOS and often had the same cm that a person who ovulates normally has even though I wasn't ovulating. Were you told by a doctor that you are not ovulating? So many things effect your cm, hormones, meds, diet.

My doctor done a 21 progestone blood test which come back "not ovulating", I had a Blighted Ovum in Feb, been trying since may but no joy, when i had the miscarriage the u/s showed my ovaries were fine. The day before i went for the blood test i did notice that my cervical mucus was clear , I hoping that i ovulated the day after the blood tests, cos my periods are normally every 28 days, this month it was 33 days, so i'm hoping that I had delayed ovulation, Thanks for replying.

I'm on cd22, and I have not ovulated this month (I know b/c I do bbt). I had a cancelled ivf cycle and they figure I have a cyst(s) that occurred after I stopped the injections. I have stretchy ewcm like i normally do. I 've had it since about cd8 as I normally do. One time when I had 4 lge cysts it delayead ovulation until cd29. Other than that I always ovulate on my own between cd12-14 so to answer your question yest you can have the ewcm even if you havent ovulated yet. I hope you just a late 'O' but if you dont ovulate at all they can give you meds to make you O. good luck sam

Hi isa, when you say that you had 4 large cysts what happened did you have them removed?, Cos when i was 15 I had a cyst on my ovary which stopped me having a period for 6 months, I was told that it would go on it's own, which it did. Im waiting for a u/s to see what is going on.

hey sam, they went away on their own no meds or anything. By my next cycle i was able to start stimming again.

i think extra cm can be a sign of an anovulatory cycle. in august i had ewcm for a week and then again for a few more days in the following week - my day 21 progesterone test showed i hadn't o'd. fortunately i o'd in september with a high progesterone reading and positive opk. my dr said it's not unusual to have the ocaisioinal non--o cycle. this month i'm on clomid anyway, just in case...good luck.

Hi chandellina, Thats what im hoping for i have seen some articles on the net, that reckon sometimes we do have a anovulatory month which is quite normal. Or delayed ovulation, thanks to all for replying. Sam
