It may not.: Counting the first day of your period as day #1, most women ovulate around day #14. At ovulation, you might experience a small amount of cramping, a change in cervical mucous, and ovulation predictor kits would be able to measure a surge in a hormone called lh. Everyone will have a different experience. ...Read more

Is I possible to ovulate and have creamy white discharge instead of stringy clear discharge?

Is I possible to ovulate and have creamy white discharge instead of stringy clear discharge?

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

Had sex 2 or 3 days in a row now today a think white discharge kinda...what is it?? I already ovulated!!

Ovulated May 16th in late afternoon, had sex May 17th around 3am and 3pm. I'm having creamy white discharge as of May 20th. What could this be?

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. A yeast infection will also give a similar discharge. I hope you get the results you are looking for. Good health. ...Read more

Now not unusual for the body to change the caginal secretions. Most likely this us what you are experiencing especially if no other symtoms. ...Read more

Could a women still ovulate without having egg white discharge? Could alcohol, drugs, and over weight b the problem? Plan b n bc I thnk messd me up

May happen without: Not all women will notice the "egg white" stringy discharge at the time of ovulation. Also, the timing of ovulation is not always predictable, and can be affected by hormonal contraceptives. Alcohol and drugs should, of course, be avoided when a woman is trying to get pregnant. ...Read more

Is it possible to ovulate late? Or for a whole month then from being 4 days late you started your period, and bled brown for a day, then had heavy stringy white discharge & since no period, & hpt (-)

Is it possible to ovulate late? Or for a whole month then from being 4 days late you started your period, and bled brown for a day, then had heavy stringy white discharge & since no period, & hpt (-)

Yes: Many women ovulate late from time to time. This can happen with stress. If there is a skipped ovulation, the bleeding pattern may be thrown off for up to 2 months. If things don't go back to normal in 2 months, seeking care would be a good idea. Also make sure there is not a pregnancy as cause for the irregularity. Home urine tests are very accurate. ...Read more
