  • But in addition to symptoms and dates, which are not always very precise, especially if your menstruation is irregular, there is a very reliable indicator that you are in the ovulation period, which is vaginal discharge. Most of the cycle, vaginal discharge is scant, whitish in color and sticky in texture.
  • This is the flow that comes from the cervical mucus, which makes it difficult for the sperm to reach the uterus. However, two days before ovulation, the flow becomes more abundant, transparent and slippery. Many women compare it to the white of an egg and it is the perfect indication that spermatozoa have more facilities to fertilize the egg.
