Question: Clear gooey/string-like discharge but not ovulating

 adriisdank - Fri May 22, 2009 9:28 pm

My period is due any day now so i know im not ovulating, but for the past week i've been having a clear discharge alot like you have when your ovulating and sometimes its white and kind of watery. There is no odor. Me and my boyfriend did have unprotected sex a couple weeks ago...Could this mean im pregnant?

User avatar Hello,
This is normal since vaginal discharge varies throughout a woman's life and cycle, not just at ovulation, though it is typical at that type. It is not an early indication of pregnancy.

Best wishes.
