Egg white cervical mucus: When the mucus is an egg white color and stretches an inch or two without breaking, this is the time when a woman is most fertile. Watery cervical mucus: Watery discharge occurs before the egg-white color is seen and happens right before your most fertile time.
Then, how many days do you have egg white cervical mucus?
The next type of mucus you can expect, the most fertile of them all, is very slippery and stretchy. This type of mucus precedes ovulation by 1-2 days and does not last long (usually a maximum of 3 days). It is typically clear and may be quite watery. The vagina feels wet and lubricated.
What does a milky white discharge mean?
White: Thick, white discharge is common at the beginning and end of your cycle. Normal white discharge is not accompanied by itching. If itching is present, thick white discharge can indicate a yeast infection. Clear and stretchy: This is "fertile" mucous and means you are ovulating.
Is white discharge a sign of ovulation?
Immediately prior to ovulation, most women usually detect increased vaginal secretions that are wet and slippery (similar to the consistency of raw egg white). Immediately following the day of ovulation, your vaginal discharge gradually becomes thicker in consistency, and less is secreted.
