White mucus week after ovulation.Its last for one day.What is it?The decline in hormone levels?Thanks

Hormone response: white mucus is not diagnostic of anything specific however if it occurs on a regular basis mid cycle, it might signal a decrease in progesterone secretion in a woman.

How do hormones "cross react" on a pregnant test from hormone surge from ovulation? This can turn a pregnant test + day after ovulation & possible conception?

Not likely to happen: Ovulation predictor tests detect lh (luteinizing hormone) in your urine. Urine pregnancy tests (upt) look for HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) which is similar to lh but not the same hormone. There isn't enough lh in your urine from the pre-ovulation lh surge to give you a "false positive" upt. The upt is very accurate. A HCG injection to trigger ovulation will give you a + upt for a week or so. ...Read more
