Yup: Although the presence of stringy clear cervical mucus is a good sign that a patient is around the point of ovulation, the absence of the mucus does not preclude ovulation. Of course if your cycles are very irregular then it would not be surprising that the mucus fails to become stringy and watery.
Good luck. ...Read more

Semen or yeast: If you were trying to get pregnant which I assume you are from your description, then I also assume you did not douche after sexual relations. Now it is coming out.
