In Reply to: EWCM before LH Surge posted by Jillian on July 02, 19100 at 12:06:09:

The time before the surge is the follicular phase, not the luteal phase, so this would not be a luteal phase defect. And some people have ewcm for several days before the surge. This can be a good thing, because sperm can live for days in good quality EWCM. The EWCM is caused by a rise in your estradiol, or E2, level, which rises as the follicle matures, before ovulation. The rise in E2 also causes the lining of your uterus to thicken. I guess if the EWCM dries up too far ahead of your LH surge, that might be a problem, but even when you think it is not there, it sometimes is just hiding.
