Possible: There is usually an increase in the the amount of vaginal discharge and a decrease in viscosity (thinner consistency) at the time of ovulation. That is normal and is likely to increase fertility.

Cervical mucus: Some women will have a lot of cervical discharge with ovulation. Still, it should be consistent in each person so it would be unusual to develop more mucus with a few cycles. If this persists, it may suggest other conditions that need to be evaluated.
