Once you have an understanding of the different
types of cervical fluid and how to identify your most fertile times and peak days it can
be used as a key indicator in your journey to pregnancy achievement. Your cervical
fluid type and overall vaginal sensation (wet or dry) needs to be checked throughout the
day and logged on your fertility spreadsheet. This page will explain how to chart
your cervical fluid.
What Kind Of BBT
We recommend using the WebWomb.com spreadsheet because of it's
unique design in showing you exactly when you are most fertile. Click
Here for more information about our bbt chart. There are also many
other BBT charts available on the Internet as well as a master sheet in the back of the
book "Taking Charge Of Your Fertility" - or you can even make up your own by
using graph paper. Which ever spreadsheet you decide to use, we recommend you give
as much detail to your chart as possible. There is no such thing as too much
information in charting your indicators. Your body can tell you a great deal about
your fertility.....all you have to do is pay attention and log what you find.
Your first cycle day (the day that you begin your chart) is
the first day of your menstrual period and is not any day that you may have spotted
prior. This day may also be the last day on your chart for the previous month -
unless you have started your period sometime during the night or the first thing in the
morning and have not taken your waking temperature or logged your indicators for the day.
If this is the case, make sure you indicate that you started you period on the last day of
your previous chart. Indicate in some way that you are menstruating whether it be
with a yes, check mark, an X, a circle or highlight. It is not necessary to check your cervical fluid internally
during your period, however if you have any spotting after you menstruation has started
indicate spotting on your chart. During your period you are not fertile.
Cervical Fluid After Your Period
The cervical fluid pages (Cervical Fluid, How To Check Your
Cervical Fluid and How To Identify Your Fertile Days) describe in detail the types of
cervical fluid throughout your cycle. It is important that log the type of fluid
for that day on your fertility spreadsheet. The WebWomb.com spreadsheet uses the
following letters for the different type of fluid. Describing your fluid S
(sticky) L (lotion
like), M (milky), C (creamy), E (eggwhite or other). Your overall vaginal sensation
is charted as D (dry), M (moist), W (wet).
After you period and prior to ovulation is when you are the
most fertile. Checking your cervical fluid will give you a good indication of when
this is so please pay very close attention to your cervical fluid during this time.
Cervical Fluid then changes to feeling sticky for a
period of 2 - 3 days. When rubbed between your fingertips it may give a small amount
of resistance, feels slightly gummy or may even crumble. The color will range from
clear to white and although you may feel a small amount of moisture the fluid is still dry
and does not feel wet at this time.
Charting your waking temperature and cervical fluid combined
with the position of feel of your cervix is how to indicate when your most fertile time
is. For more detailed information on cervical positions, please use one of the links
provided on the navigation bar to the left.
