  • Ovulation is the production of a mature egg in a female body. It can appear as a white stretchy discharge.

  • ovulation discharge can be clear or white and stretchy-like or "mucous-like" I meant to add that. and around the time of your period you can have many different types of discharge. all normal.

  • The answer to that is way too complicated, but if you're trying to track ovulation you can look for a couple things, first like the last answer look for you discharge to be more like an eggwhite, if you can stretch it an inch between your fingers ovulation is close. Two look up tracking your ovulation by body temperature. Lastly you ussually ovulate one week after the last day of your period. Hope it helps. Google it!!!!!!!! Good luck.
