Does more discharge during ovulation mean more eggs (higher fertility rate)?
I know some women don't seem to know when they're ovulating, but for me there's no way I can ignore it. It appears to me that I have a lot of discharge during ovulation. It's especially annoying when I go for a run and it just seems to gush out (TMI?).
But what I'm wondering is, does a higher amount of discharge during ovulation mean my chances are higher for getting pregnant? We want to start trying soon, and were thinking about trying sooner than we originally had planned just in case it take a few months, but now I'm wondering if we'll get pregnant the first time around because of how much discharge I have. In which case, I want to delay it a little bit.
Anyone know? I can't seem to find any answers at all about this on the internet.
