Sounds normal: The vaginal discharge usually increases at the time of ovulation, as you noticed. However it is normal to have some discharge throughout the cycle. It usually gets thicker and more sticky as you approach your period. If the discharge is clear or white and there is no itching, pain, or odor - you are probably normal. If the discharge is not typical for your cycles and persists, see your doctor.
