Ovulation & Cervical Mucus
I have been TTC and have been charting my BBT and checking my cerivcal mucus. Can you please tell me, when you get the egg white cervical mucus (see through not white at all) does this mean you have ovulated or does this mean you are ovulating then and this is the day you must have intercourse or would we have missed it if intercourse hasnt been taking place every second day and only happened 4-5 days before?

Thank you for your advice.

The egg white discharge occurs just before you ovulate. It is advisable to have sex for the next three days.
