Monitoring ovulation via cervical mucous is not very reliable. ...Read more

Also when the next cycle comes or you have a +preg test will help ...Read more

Crude measure: If mucous behaves normally, big if, it changes from clear elastic to thick and non elastic with progesterone. So ovulation is a retrospectively evaluated event. When the change is noted, ovulation likely occurred 2-3 days prior. One should have sex roughly every 48 hours from cycle days 11-18 to best cover ovulation and it can't be better than that. Some will see "mucous" for days before ovul. ...Read more
