Ovulation ?: Ovulation mucus is typically clear and occurs mid-cycle when periods are about 28 30 days apart. "Creamy" mucus usually indicates an additional component to the discharge, such as yeast. A more accurate way of detecting ovulation is to obtain a test which is positive with the "surge" of LH , just prior to release of the egg.

Progesterone testing: Cervical mucous monitoring is useful for some women to detect ovulation. Not all women are able to do it. If you would like official ovulation testing then a Progesterone blood test can be done 7 days after the day you think you ovulated to confirm if ovulation occurred or not.
