How do you know when you're ovulating
Hi there

My last period was on 27 Janurary. I worked out that I was suppose to ovulate between 10-14 Feb.
Do I need to have sex everyday to fall pregnant?
And on the 12th I had a discharge. It was see-through and slimey. When I go to the toilet and I wipe myself after urinating, my vagine is very slippery, wet and slimey. This happens once a month during the time that I'm suppose to ovulate. Does that mean that I ovulated on the 12th?

Yes, it sounds like you ovulated on the 12th. It is not necessary to have sex every day. Every second day is fine.
