Ok, so I went to pee, wiped and thought "That felt weird!"... reached down to feel, and my CM/natural lube/something was like a 'show'!

When I had the 'show' during labour with my daughter, I reached down and wound it around my hand before it came away and the same thing just happened now!

I know that EWCM is supposed to be stretchy, but this was minimum 2-3 inches of stretchy-ness and it was slightly... I want to say sticky, but I dont think that's an accurate description... clingy? I dont know, but it was WEIRD!

Has anyone else had something like this?

Sorry again about the tmi...

Ooh, yep - think I know what you're talking about - I had a similar thing happen 2 cycles ago. Not sure whether it was CM or semen, but as it was so stretchy, I thought probably CM. Haven't seen it again, but was weird! Was kind of like a long thread, almost clear but a bit cloudy?

I'll keep watching this thread to see if anyone else has seen it too!

Yes! Slightly cloudy. Also it was different from EWCM in that it wasn't thin and fluid like... it reminded me of. Something but I just can't seem to put my finger on it. *looks thoughtful*

I googled for a while trying to figure it out. A couple of pages I found seemed to match it to O, because I described it as stretchy but they all kept mentioning EW consistency... it is roughly O time, so it def could be, but if so that kinda sucks because this is thicker so probably less fertile and that means I only got 1 BD in :-/

Oh well, we'll see how it goes...

I had ewcm like this first month off the pill. Unfortunately we weren't trying at that stage, but DH found it interesting none the less ( yes he saw it lol )
I wish I could still get ewcm like that. The volume of it was surprising!

Is it reminding you of a translucent 'slime'? (this will only make sense if you are a 70s child I fear)

If so.... it's good ol' fashioned EWCM!

In the spirit of TMI - mine is always like that!  Just the once though... once a month!



* oh and as you may be aware I can't seem to conceive! So it is probably crap EWCM!

*points at self* late 80s child, but I do know what slime is original.gif I guess it kinda was a little like that... thing is, normally when I have EWCM its more... thin and almost runny? But still stretchy... Or like those water (sorry) boogers that when you blow your nose its completely clear, but hangs between the tissue and your nose *shudders* yuck! Bodily functions gross me out!

Oh well I'll just go with it being EWCM and make a note of it. Maybe its more my normal for it to be like that but I haven't noticed before  shrug.gif

Thanks ladies for your help!
