What is the discharge during ovulation?

I know that you ovulate two weeks before/after your period, and in doing so you get a clear to whitish discharge. Is the discharge the dissolved egg that is released from your ovaries, because I thought that was released through your period? And if so, then what is the discharge?

The vaginal discharge which you notice during ovulation is cervical mucus and not the dissolved egg. The consistency of your cervical mucus changes during the menstrual cycle because of hormonal fluctuations. You are considered most fertile, during ovulation, when the mucus is clear, slippery and stretchy, like raw egg whites.
