I had this happen to me about 5 or 6 dpo. I was not sure what it was myself. This cycle I never seem to went completely dry, so I am not sure what that meant either. You are right though, it is like its shedding skin. I too had no itching or burning just a lot of thick white CM, and (here's where TMI happens, sorry) but when I noticed mine it was right after I had gone #2. I have been somewhat constipated for about a week or so, so when I finally went out came all the thick white CM. I wish I knew exaclty what it was or caused from but I am afraid I don't. Maybe someone else will help us out!
i don't think I've seen it before but i am trying to get pregnant so am trying to pay attention to this stuff more.. oh well i guess thank u for posting with your info though glad to know that i didn't turn into anything scary :)
