Menstrual Cycle Day 17


What is happening internally?

The corpus luteum continues to produce high amounts of progesterone, in order to maintain the uterine lining. If an ovum (egg) has been fertilized, it continues its journey down the fallopian tube, and toward the opening into the uterus. The fertilized egg, at this point, is known as a morula.

Outward symptoms:

Basal body temperatures remain high - above the coverline. Cervix is low, firm, and closed. Cervical fluid is dry. You may be experiencing a little bloating or water retention.

Hey ladies. i am having a problem here, and a very big one. my last 2 normal periods were on 04 january 2015, and lasted 6 days and again on 01 february for only 2 and a half days. again on 18 february, i spotted, and then it came like a period. i spotted again. so this cycle is 17 days apart. it was due on the 7th of march and the ada calculation states 13 march, and anada tells me the 18th. so i am confused, and i just need help please please. today is the 17th and still no period.

On day 17 i had sex. will i get my period this month? we used a condom.

Yes, you will get your period if you used a condom. you can only get pregnant if your partner ejaculates inside of you and it has to be in your fertile window near ovulation.

I'm on day 20 of my cycle and i'm feeling so tired. i have no energy, mild cramping, and a lower back ache could this all relate to pregnancy or not? i'm a bit confused. :/

I'm on my 17th cycle day, and no sign of ovulation. i have a 30 day cycle. i used an ovulation calculator, but on my fertile days i didn't experience any cervical mucus, which is stretchy. i always have a dry spell, i don't know if i'm ovulating or not. maybe i'm infertile. please help.
