We recently had sex and I can’t be sure that what I’m seeing is cervical fluid. How do I record this?
Both sexual arousal fluid and semen can look and feel like fertile cervical fluid. For this reason it’s not advisable to check your cervical fluid after intercourse or when you are feeling sexually aroused.
If you observe fluid that looks like eggwhite cervical fluid, but you think it could also be semen or sexual arousal fluid, record it as eggwhite but make a note of your uncertainty on your chart.
For more information on telling the difference between these fluids, please check out the resource ‘Your Guide to – factors affecting Cervical Fluid’ from Step 2 of the Program.
