Menstrual Cycle Day 20


What is happening internally?

The corpus luteum continues to release high amounts of progesterone, to maintain the uterine lining. If conception occurred, the blastocyst (the fertilized egg) is floating in the uterus.

Outward symptoms:

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

I would go to the doctor and ask for blood work to be done to check your prolactin levels.

I have a 35 day period cycle i had unprotected sex on day 13, 15, 20 and 21 i'm not to sure when i was ovulating but yesterday was day 23 from my cycle and i saw a white thick discharge. i seen it earlier in my cycle but not to sure when. during the time i had sex he did not ejaculated inside me but he did ejaculate around my lips and perineum. he then jerks out the rest of the sperm wipes it off and then goes right back in my question is what are my chances of becoming pregnant and if so when would i be able to take a pregnancy test

I am 37 and diabetic i have no children but is no trying to have but an afraid my condition will affect my chances. any information will be greatly appreciated.

Blood sugar spikes do affect fertility. it was discovered by my doctor that i have insulin resistance which was causing my infertility. i wasn't considered diabetic as my blood sugar numbers were within the "normal" range but they were on the high end of that. my doctor had me cut out grains, high glycemic fruits like pineapple, and balance my carbs with fats which slows down the sugar spike. my blood sugar went from 110 to 84. it's only been a few months and still waiting to see if i'm pregnant.
