Updated July 05, 2009


I get the white egg vaginal mucus, and sometimes the pinch on a side of the stomach. I am not sure of the sex drive increase. I am trying to conceive after having my first child 9 years ago. This is my first month but I am already anxious.

I can't seem to do it

It's been a month, I know probably not long enough but we've gotten to the point of having sex like we eat our meals. 3 times a day. I can't tell when I'm ovulating.

I become hornier I want sex every minute. I feel pinching abdominal pains.

My signs

When I am getting ready to ovulate, my sex drive increases, I start feeling more flirtatious, sometimes I notice a slight cramping in my side, and my temp goes up. Also it is much easier to get aroused. Sometimes I feel my appetite increase as well.

Infertility problem?

I have been charting my ovulation period and the doctor confirmed it, but still it didn't work. I can't conceive already for 5 months. I am getting worried about it very much. I need a child right now.

Just know it

Raw-egg-white-like vaginal mucous, swelling breasts, hornier, softer skin. I never feel the abdominal pain but my breasts are always the tale-tell sign, they're always at least one cup bigger than they normally are.

I have a 15 year old and been on and off birth control ever since, now I'm married and we are trying to conceive. It's been 3 months since I been of the depo and just started having regular periods again. But I have been tracking down when I ovulate and notice high sex drive and pain in my side, also very swollen and sore breasts.

Signs of ovulation

I do no experience any signs of ovulation at all. Because my ovulation and menstrual pain are just the same. Am trying to conceive.
—Guest Isha


I feel very hot like having a fever and I become easily horny.

Signs of ovulation

1-2 days before I am about to ovulate my lower abdomen swells up with dull aches/cramps which feels a bit like your period is about to start and I get a burst of clear discharge. I also get ache in my lower back sometimes around the spine or just at the side of the spine. I agree that my sex drive increases and it's more ‘comfortable’ to have sex as the cervix has risen. When I am ovulating I can feel what some of the previous ladies have mentioned a pinching pain from my ovary which I guess is when the eggs is being released.
—Guest Ana
