Hey ladies! Visiting from another forum and I need some insight badly!!! Background: I have 2 beautiful daughters (2 1/2 and 11 months) and I had on m/c in 2006.
Since I gave birth to my youngest, almost a year ago, I have not had ANY CM!!! We started TTC baby #3 (we want them close in age) and I believe I am ovulating. Can I still get pregnant without CM? I used CM method to conceive 2 pregnancies so I'm thrown off by this.
The reason I believe I am ovulating is because I feel it---sensitive BBs and a squeezing sensation on my right ovary, crampiness, headaches.
If anyone has a website, a doctor's personal opinion/advice for them, your own experience, etc. it would be much appreciated!!!
PS I had a blood test done to determine if I have a hormonal imbalance. Results Mar. 7th but just wondering about whether we could still conceive without CM present. This was also posted on Madame Ovaries Forum on 2WW website.
I have ovulated without CM many times. I think it's good you are getting your hormones checked just in case. Many women chart their body basal temperature to determine when they are ovulating, and use PreSeed to help conceive. PreSeed is a lubricant that mimics cervical mucus and helps keep the sperm where it needs to be. I hope your bloodwork turns out perfectly, and that more people can help shed light on this for you. Take care :-)
Like HeathJo said, you can definitely ovulate without CM, but it is a bit harder to get pregnant without it, as the CM aids the sperm on their journey through your cervix and into the reproductive tract. If your tests come back normal, you could try preseed or you could do IUIs.
On thing, though: Do you check for CM externally or internally. I noticed that I actually have more fertile cervical mucus than I though after I started checking internally. As long as there is wet or stretchy CM up by the cervix, you should be fine!
