I'm not producing much cervical fluid. Could this signal a fertility problem?

In brief: Fluid Factor

Cervical mucous will vary throughout the menstrual cycle in both quality and quantity.
Female fertility is at its peak during the mid-cycle when ovulation usually occurs and as a result the cervical mucous is more thin. During other times it will be more viscous and of less quantity to protect the body from infection. Fertility concerns should be checked with bloodwork not by cervical mucous.
