I saw fertile cervical fluid a few days ago and now I’m seeing more again. I don’t think I’ve ovulated. What’s going on?
It can sometimes take more than one ‘attempt’ at ovulation before the egg is finally released. This can result in multiple patches of cervical fluid being produced. This situation is more common in long cycles and can be caused by stress or illness before ovulation.
Long cycles with multiple patches of cervical fluid can also indicate a hormonal imbalance and this is particularly common with a condition called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). If you frequently experience these long or erratic cycles, it’s important that you get checked out by your doctor.
Until you see a sustained temperature rise indicating that ovulation has occurred, make sure you have intercourse during these fertile patches, to maximise your chances of conceiving.
