Early ovulation meaning shorter cycle?
My normal cycle is 27Days. I saw ovulation discharge on Day 9 and thought my cycle would be shorter, expecting my period on Day23.We only had sex on Day 15 &16. I only spotted and today is Day27 still clear but having mild period pains? Can one ovulate early and still have a normal period? What could this be, we are tyring to get pregnant. When seeing that discharge does it mean the egg is already released? After how many days after dischage is it released.

The discharge usually starts before ovulation. It is not 100% accurate, so the fact that you saw the discharge on Day 9 does not always mean that you ovulated then.
