Hi jade2013

Thanks for your post!

It's important to take the time to examine your cycle for several months in a row.

In general (and every woman is different) we have somewhere close to a 28 day cycle but anywhere from 21-24 days is considered normal.

Ovulation is around the middle of the month - so about day 14 but again, days 10-20 can see ovulation.

Consider getting an ovulation predictor kit (over the counter) to examine when you ovulate.

You are right that ovulation can mean more vaginal discharge but it can be thick/milky colored or clear. When it's heavier, is generally the sign of ovulation.

We cannot tell you whether you may be pregnant from the scenario above.

You can read more about ovulation here, as well as all about your menstrual cycle: http://www.empowher.com/menstrual-cycle/content/low-tech-ways-predict-wh... and here: http://www.empowher.com/condition/menstrual-cycle

When trying to get pregnant, make sure to have sex at least every other day from about days 10-20 of your cycle.
