White Discharge After Ovulation

Service Details

White discharge refers to your cervical mucus that keeps changing throughout your menstrual cycle. By monitoring it, you can know when you are going to ovulate or when you will be highly fertile. With it, you can conceive or avoid having a pregnancy.   

Ways to monitor your cervical mucus

Usually, there are 2 different methods to track the changes in your cervical mucus - the Creighton Method, the Billings Ovulation Method, and the 2-Day Methods. Whether you are trying to conceive or not, knowing your menstrual cycle and monitoring your cervical mucus changes is important for you. Whatever the method you apply, you can follow the following ways to check your cervical mucus:

  • Wipe your vaginal opening with toilet paper before you urinate and inspect what is on the paper 
  • Have a close look at the colour, appearance, and texture of cervical mucus on your lower undergarment 
  • Insert your finger/s into your vagina to note down the colour and consistency of cervical mucus

Changes in cervical mucus throughout your menstrual cycle

Your cervical mucus changes in its colour, texture, and appearance throughout your menstrual cycle. Here are some significant changes to know:

  • Dry and least fertile - it is usually a few days before, during, and just after your period 
  • Slightly dump indicating low fertility - It is around first 3 to 4 days following your menstrual period
  • Thicker indicating intermediate fertility - It around the production of one egg in either of your ovaries, usually around on day 10 if your menstrual cycle is of 28 days 
  • Stretchy and egg-white like appearance indicating the peak of fertility - It is usually on day 14 if your menstrual cycle lasts for 28 days and is regular

White discharge after ovulation 

After ovulation, there is less production of cervical mucus. Your cervical mucus that you see after ovulation on your undergarment or fingers may look sticky and cloudy. You will notice a return of dry cervical mucus soon if you haven’t conceived at this stage. It means you can see any cervical mucus on your finger or undergarment. However, you will notice an increased amount of stretchy cervical mucus if you had sex with your male partner and your egg had fertilisation with sperm and there was implantation in your uterus.
