A 38-year-old male asked:

Will i get the most cervical mucus the day of ovulation or a day before or what??

Maybe both: Mucus production increases around ovulation due to the increase in estrogen that your body is making. This peaks just before ovulation, but how much mucus is produced can vary from woman to woman

Relatively thin: Mucus plug of cervix thorns out, allows for fertilization. Not the only finding around ovulation, so don't count on that alone.

A 28-year-old female asked:

If cervical mucus stops before ovulation day, is that means I have ovulated earlier?

Unknown: Monitoring cervical mucous is not an effective or very reliable method for detecting ovulation. If you are having trouble getting pregnant then the use of a home ovulation kit is going to be much more helpful
