No: it is hard to determine ovulation from mucus discharge. People are different and this is not an accurate way to determine ovulation If no vaginal intercourse no pregnancy. You can not get pregnant from anal intercourse with no vaginal penetration

However in the heat of the moment, anal sex is still fraught with risk. Bad aim, sperm on the perineum, accidental penetration etc.. If someone promises it is safe, there is no guarantee in a promise. Anal sex is not the way to prevent pregnancy. It does not prevent disease. Use protection.

Birds and Bees: One cannot and does not get pregnant from anal sex. Period. Second it is a wives tale and in no way a reliable measurement of any part of the mrnstrual cycle to follow the volir consistency of vaginal mucous or discharge. Perhaps it is time to review when and how babies are made
