rinchan, i'm not sure where you got this information, but it certainly isn't true. If this were, the home pregnancy test industry would go bankrupt! We would only have to watch our discharge to know if we're pregnant or not (wouldn't that be nice though??)!!


Honestly there is no real "tell-tale" "you're pregnant" discharge. Regardless if the egg is or is not fertilized, you will still have a typical ovulation type discharge (the egg-white texturey stuff), thinner in the days leading up to ovulation, and thicker and more stretchy on the day of (typically).But in no way is there a sort of "fertilized egg" vs "unfertilized egg" discharge. Some women may have implantation bleeding, but that won't occur until 2 weeks after ovulation (right about when, say, a period may start) but that doesn't always happen, in fact it's more the exception than the rule.

Just have intercourse, i'd say, when you first start noticing the thinner egg-white type of discharge. And maybe do so every other day until you notice the thicker (not to be confused with the semen that will inevitably be inside you) egg white discharge. Once the ovulation stage has passed, you should have little to no discharge until later in your cycle, when you are either pregnant or start your period. Good luck.

If you have intercourse only on the day of you probably have less of a chance, and I only say that because on ovulation day is your last "window of chance". Once the egg is out it only stays alive about 24 hours. So your better bet is to watch your cervical fluid changes, and once it starts to be the fertile fluid have sex, if you like you can do it every other day or every two days until you have the ovulation-day fluid (which is the most egg-white like sticky fluid). You see if you have sex 3-5 days before ovulation, you've got sperm then in your system sort of hanging out "waiting" for the egg to be released. So it's better to have the sperm in there "prepared" as it were for an egg to come along, rather than trying to find out when the egg will be coming (ovulation) and quickly trying to catch it.


Don't worry if it seems "too early" a few days before ovulation. The mucus discharge is there to help the sperm survive more than the typical 3 day life of sperm (in the mucus they can live 5 and occasionally more days).


Watch your cycle, and have intercourse on one or more of the days just before ovulation (when you start to see the "fertile" mucus). Your best chance is to have sperm waiting up in your fallopian tubes for the point when the egg comes along.


Hope that makes sense to you! Good luck!

Question for the "Soccer Mom"s
My doctor just told me that my cramps [ which i know now are from the egg being released ] and my elevated temperature of 99.7F' more than likely have something to do with each other.She took some blood and urine tests. will get back to me next week. I'm 19 in less than 3 weeks. I experienced bad cramping yesterday all day in my right side. and slight pain today in my left side. My fiance and I had intercourse almost every other day of last week. I know I must have ovulated yesterday because of the pain but i thought it was supposed to be on the 16,17,and 18th of this month [June] because if that was the correct timing then these cramps are 4 days late. -
my last period was the 4th through the 8th of June, so I assumed ovulation would be on the days listed.
what are my chances of this being a pregnancy?

ps) Discharge has been on and off since the 19th. elastic-y egg white consistency to a thicker white discharge and back again, and so on.

ps2)Cervix feels softer than yesterday or the day before.not like the end of the nose feeling i've heard about. not by much but enough to realize a difference.

UPDATED INFORMATION:

It is Thursday and I just took my temp.at 9:08am.
I took my temp. three times to be sure, and it is ranging between 98.6 and 99.3

lower back pains, slight cramping, I'm 10 days away from my next cycle, so this is abnormal for a menstrual period. My breasts don't hurt, they itch.
they don't seem to be getting any "larger" - but my hubby says they look just a little darker.?.

oh and little waves of nausea while driving or sitting in heat.

So here's hoping I've been granted some baby dust!
