Menstrual Cycle Day 17

publishdate
16 Comments


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.

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.
