I have a heavy thick white discharge after ovulation and sore nipples. No smell or itch. First time this happened. Is it ovulation symptoms or something else?

I have a heavy thick white discharge after ovulation and sore nipples. No smell or itch. First time this happened. Is it ovulation symptoms or something else?

Something else: Ovulation causes the mucus to be thin and watery but it still has stretch. The breast symptoms could be because of building estrogen levels leading to ovulation. We see a wide spectrum of findings so we cannot be sure of what happened. You might want to track ovulation carefully with opk, BBT or even doctor monitoring and compare with symptoms to know your body better. Hope this helps.

It's normal: After ovulation as egg is released so called corpus luteum starts secreting progesterone which is associated with thick white discharge. It prepares uterus for a possible pregnancy and happens regardless whether it occurred or not. Sometimes, after pregnancy there is increase in progesterone secretion and this can be associated with more abundant white discharge.

Thick white discharge started 2days after ovulation, it is now 10days before my period is due? Pregnant?

Thick white discharge started 2days after ovulation, it is now 10days before my period is due? Pregnant?

Hard to tell: It can be hard to guess whether a woman is pregnant or not. A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period, or after having a "weird" period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test.

Can coming off the Mini pill cause thick white discharge?

It can happen: Even though the doses of hormones used in the mini-pill are low, the change in hormonal environment can affect vaginal discharge. This hormonal change might even make you more susceptible to a yeast infection....the most typical cause of a thick white discharge. If it is not itchy/irritating & goes away in a few days, all is good. If persists or causes symptoms, see your doctor. Good wishes:)
