We are TTC and I have a slight discharge that smells like semen, could this be an early sign of pregnancy? I don't remember having it with our first. Thanks

Nope it's definitely not actual semen! But I have a discharge, not foul or bad smelling at all, just reminds me of semen!

That is very reassuring, with our first we tried for almost a year, this was our first month of trying this time round and it was on a total whim, ovulating on Christmas Day, good timing! Fingers crossed we made a baby  original.gif

Well I'm 9 DPO I think, sorry I'm not really up with all the terms so I will try my best, tested yesterday, knew it was too early but I'm really impatient!!! Wonder if I can wait until the end of the week to test again!

I also remember the smell of my discharge changed when I was pregnant and it did remind me a little bit in the beginning of the smell of semen! Good luck.

I don't remember the smell of it changing as a sign of pregnancy, but I do notice that the smell of my CM resembles the smell of semen after DTD. It can even carry on until the next day. Definitely not pleasant.

Fingers crossed that you are pregnant though! original.gif

Wow, this is interesting, I am around DPO9 and on DPO7, I had cream CM that smelt like semen too, and it wasnt from BD'ing as we havent done the dead for a good 5 days!  It was after I had been for a 5km run though... does that bring on CM by any chance?

I sooo hope this is a good sign of pregnancy!  Good luck!!

No news so far here, I have tested, both negative but also no AF.  I was really moody earlier in the week and have been having migraines so thought AF would have arrived by now.  I've also been really stressed so maybe my cycle is just out of whack!

Good Luck to everyone else!
