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.

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.
