You start getting vaginal mucous a few days before ovulation right? Not just the day the egg is released?

Misnomer: It's normal to have vaginal discharge every day. Every day. The vagina produces mucous every day. The nature of one's cervical mucous (you have to reach up there and touch the cervical mucous) does change at the time of ovulation. If, at 17, you're trying to conceive, which I wouldn't recommend, then an ovulation predictor kit is going to be more accurate. Please be safe. ...Read more

What could cause painful ovulation? Also, when is the egg released?

What could cause painful ovulation? Also, when is the egg released?

Adenomyosis: Pain with ovulation itself is not common but some do experience it. The pain is actually before ovulation as the follicle rapidly enlarges and the pain gets better with physical ovulation. Adenomyosis or endometriosis in the muscle of the uterus can also stimulate pain with the falling estrogen levels around ovulation. Pain with the cycle itself would also likely be bad in this scenario. ...Read more
