A member asked:

You start getting vaginal mucous a few days before ovulation right? not just the day the egg is released?

Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology

Misnomer: It's normal to have vaginal discharge every day. Every day. The vagina produces mucous every day. The nature of one's cervical mucous (you have to reach up there and touch the cervical mucous) does change at the time of ovulation. If, at 17, you're trying to conceive, which i wouldn't recommend, then an ovulation predictor kit is going to be more accurate. Please be safe.
