I've stopped taking my pill on Monday and had unprotected sex on Tuesday. Normally on the 3rd day after I finished my pill I start my period. Today is my 3rd day but since yesterday I've noticed my cervix is open, soft and I've got lots of ewcm. Does that mean I'm ovulating and not my period?

I didn't have a period last month cause I went from one active pack to the other to cancel out my period!

Tic after infant loss,

Honestly, if you stopped taking your birth control pills on Monday and had sex on Tuesday, it's not very likely that you would be ovulating. Discharge or Egg White Cervical Mucous can be noted either when your body is attempting to ovulate or when there are high levels of Estrogen present. Unfortunately, it is not a guarantee that you are or have ovulated. If you had not just come off birth control pills-- I would say that EWCM is a good sign. But give it a few months, keep having unprotected sex, and you can even try taking your basal body temperature every morning along with checking your EWCM to determine when you are ovulating.

Wishing you the best!
