30th more likely: Cervical mucus is not the best measure of ovulation. If your cycles are regular--like every 28-30 days--then you are typically ovulating around cycle day 13-15. Ovulation predictor kits (purchased over the counter) are a more accurate way to pinpoint your ovulation. For the dates listed in your question, it's more likely you ovulated on the 30th (cycle day 14). ...Read more

Is it possible to have egg white cervical mucus on day 7 (last day of period) and then go dry for 8 days? Did I ovulate on day 7?  29 day cycle

Unsure: The vaginal discharge will vary throughout the cycle and often is very thin and watery about the time of ovulation. With the cycle length you describe, ovulation would have been about cycle day 15. For every woman, ovulation occurs 14 days before the period starts. So you could not ovulate on cycle day 7 and start the period on cycle day 29. It ovulation is cycle day 7, the period is day 21. ...Read more

Can I possibly not be ovulating even though my cervical mucus turns from thick white to clear stretchy? I recently started having irregular periods.

Maybe: although the stretchy cervical mucus is a good sign. Might want to try home ovulation testing kits on first morning urine. Can also check your temperature each morning before getting out of bed and document this each day. Looking for about a half a degree Fahrenheit or .2°C rise. Hope this helps. Good luck.
