Do cervical mucus changes signal ovulation date?

Roughly... Around the time of ovulation, the amount of cervical mucus increases and it becomes more thin, clear, watery and elastic in response to estrogen produced in the body. After ovulation as the body shifts from estrogen to progesterone, the mucus becomes more thick, opaque and sticky. Tracking these changes can help you to know when you may ovulate, but is not a very reliable form of birth control!
Possible. The cervcial mucous usually becomes thinner and more watery just before ovulation.

If I didn't have change in cervical mucus does that mean I didn't ovulate?

Not necessarily. Typically the cervical mucus becomes thin and watery in the days prior to ovulation. However these changes do not always happen and one may not notice if they do. Read more...

Had period 5/17 - 23. On the 26th and today the 30th I experienced heavy cervical mucus enough to change panties. When did I ovulate?

30th more likely. Cervical mucus is not the best measure of ovulation. If your cycles are regular--like every 28-30 days--then you are typically ovulating around cycle day 13-15. Ovulation predictor kits (purchased over the counter) are a more accurate way to pinpoint your ovulation. For the dates listed in your question, it's more likely you ovulated on the 30th (cycle day 14). Read more...

I have no cervical mucus around time of ovulation?

No mucus. Obviously this is a concern… since this mucus is driven by estrogen which peaks midcycle i wonder about ovulation. Have you had any surgery done to your cervix-cryosurgery for an abnormal pap smear/cervical dysplasia or a leep procedure? I think a midcycle ultrasound will help elucidate whether or not your ovulating and you can actually see the mucus in the canal by ultrasound at that time. Read more...

How long after you see cervical mucus do you ovulate?

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...
