When you have a mucus discharge does that mean your ovulating and fertility window? does that mean i can get pregnant?

Maybe : Anyone having sex without condoms for birth control can get pregnant. Relying on cervical mucus changes is going to be highly inaccurate. If you don't want to be pregnant use birth-control and condoms.

Mucus: If its clear mucus like"egg white" then you are pre ovulatory and may very well be able to conceive. Thicker mucus is not pre ovulation.The fertlity window is between 24 and 36 hrs.
