Like so many, we were saddened by the announcement of Jennifer Morrison’s departure following the s6 finale, and all of us at fyesthesavior wanted to do something really special to honor one of the most amazing female characters in television history that Jennifer brought to life. Emma meant a great deal to many and we wanted to do an appreciation meme that would highlight the six wonderful years we got to spend with Emma Swan.

The meme will span two weeks and each day will have a theme, with a final day following the two weeks as a free choice day. Feel free to participate in as many days as you would like–there is no obligation to do them all. We have tried to include categories that encompass all aspects of Emma’s character and we hope this will be a fun way for us to remember all of our favorite Emma moments and for us to come together in our appreciation for this amazing character.  The Emma Swan Appreciation Meme will begin on Sunday, May 28th:

Wet or sticky? What your discharge is telling you

Tracking your cervical fluid can give you clues about what hormonal changes and events are happening in your body right now. Understanding your own patterns can help you to know when ovulation has occurred, and when you might be able to skip the lube. Getting to know your fluid can also allow you to recognize when something may be off — from an infection or hormonal issue, for example.

The ebbs and flows of cervical fluid

The cervix is the passageway between your lower and upper reproductive tract. It has glands in and around it which produce fluid. The quality, consistency, and volume of this fluid changes along with your cycle. The pattern and experience of these changes is different for everyone but cervical fluid tends to follow a consistent cyclical pattern. It changes in quality, quantity and function. This happens in response to your changing hormones. At different times, cervical fluid acts to facilitate or prevent sperm from moving past your cervix (1). It also contains antibodies, and helps to keep out unhealthy bacteria and viruses (2).

A fluid timeline

1. Menstruation: Start of cycle

On day one of the cycle, both estrogen and progesterone are low. The cervix is not likely producing much fluid, but you won’t be able to tell, as it’s mixed in with blood, endometrial tissue and dissolved remnants of a disintegrated egg.

2. Dry/Sticky: Early-to-mid follicular phase

In the early follicular phase, estrogen starts to rise (it’s produced by your follicles as they grow). This rising estrogen leads to increased production of fluid. You probably won’t notice much of it in the days after your period — these are “dry” fluid days for many people — some might notice “sticky” fluid. Typically, cervical fluid first becomes noticeable around the middle of the follicular phase (day ~7 in a 28 day cycle) (3).

3. Creamy: Mid-to-late follicular phase

It may start sticky, but as estrogen and water content rises fluid tends to become ‘creamy,’ cloudy (not clear) and whitish or yellowish. Research has shown sperm can start to swim through cervical fluid on about day ~9 of a 28 day cycle (1).

4. Egg White/Wet: Late follicular phase/mid-cycle

As ovulation approaches, more cervical fluid is produced. Fluid becomes stretchier, clearer and more wet and slippery — like an raw egg white. This fluid tends to “peak” about 1–2 days before ovulation, when estrogen is highest (3). Around that time fluid can often be stretched several inches between your finger and thumb. For others it may be more watery. The amount of peak fluid the body produces is different for everyone, but it can be up to 20x more in some cases (4). This fluid is about 95% water in weight, and 5% solids (electrolytes, organic compounds and soluble proteins)(2). If you’re having sex and using lube, you may notice you need less around this time. *Note that the presence of fertile-type cervical fluid alone cannot confirm ovulation — it’s not accurate enough on its own to use for a FAM method or pregnancy prevention.

5. Dry/Sticky: Luteal phase

As soon as ovulation is over, fluid changes — even before you notice a visual change, it will already have become more fibrous and less penetrable for sperm (1). In the day or two after ovulation (the first days of the luteal phase), cervical fluid lessens and becomes much thicker. Progesterone, the dominant hormone in this phase, acts to inhibit the secretion of fluid from the epithelial cells (1). You may notice little fluid, or it may be sticky (or something else unique to you).

Note that every body is unique — these changes may show up differently for you, or you may experience or interpret them in a different way.

To swim or stick — the changing role of fluid

Marichat May Day 28 - Kiss it Better

When Marinette calls Chat Noir a flirt, she doesn’t expect him to be hurt over it, guess she’ll have to kiss it better.

Rated G || 462 Words

Cross posted on Ao3 || FF

You’re Such A Flirt

Marinette’s heart caught, as it had been doing a lot for the past several months, when Chat let yet another flirty line slip out of his mouth. They were sitting close together on Marinette’s chaise. The only way she could possible keep her emotions at bay with him that close and that flirty, was by laughing the line off. Just as she should, since he was just joking around with her anyway.

Share The Pain

“Oh Kitty,” Marinette said as she continued to stare at him as he avoided her gaze, “What have I done to you? I was so busy being worried about how I felt, that I forgot about you. I’m so sorry Chat.”

“I’m Lynx,” he said briefly, but his eyes flickered with uncertainty and Marinette took it as a good sign that she was getting through to him.

“Ch-Lynx, I was scared. I was worried that maybe I wouldn’t like you the same once I knew who you were. I didn’t want to hurt you but now it’s so much worse and I’ve been so stupid. I don’t know why I thought I wouldn’t like you. You’re still you. And I love you.”
