Infection or ovulation?

My stomach is a bit bloated and I have a few pains in my ovaries. I am having a milky white discharge. I started my period on the 30th of December and today is the 9th of January. That isn't exactly two weeks, so it is making me wonder. Any thoughts?

  • Since it's milky white instead of yellow, and since you didn't say it had a bad odor, I'd say it's fertile-quality cervical mucus. The cervical mucus comes before ovulation, and it should become eggwhite in the next few days.

    Most women don't actually ovulate on day 14. I have a friend who ovulates on day 9, and I usually don't ovulate until day 25 or 30.
