No: The discharge prior to ovulation is usually thin, clear, and stretchy like water. Vaginal discharge does occur at other times of the menstrual cycle. Usually after ovulation the discharge is white and somewhat thick and occasionally yellow tinge. Infection will also produce a distinct type of discharge any time during the cycle.
