Same answer: This is the third version of this question. Rephrasing the question would not change the answer. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs.

Mucous not ovulation: In someone who has classic 28-day cycles, the mucous you describe from the cervix does become more abundant prior to ovulation. Because sperm can live for 2 - 5 days in the female genital tract, the appearance of the cervical mucous precedes ovulation and points to the "fertile time" during the cycle. If one is doomed not to ovulate, the appearance of mucous has no meaning.
