can you still have that egg-like mucus discharge (like when you ovulate) right after conception? My husband and I had sex the day after my period ended which was 3 days ago, and today I see the egg-like mucus. Could I still be pregnant?
But if we had sex just this past sunday, (period ended saturday) but not since, is there a chance that I AM pregnant? I guess I should rephrase the question: can you still have the thin white mucus immediately AFTER you have conceived?
If you just had your period, chances are slim that you have already conceived. You can only conceive after ovulation, when the egg is released from the ovary, and that usually happens about 14 days after the first day of your last menstrual period. Hope that helps.
It means you're very fertile right now. Leading up to ovulation, your cervical mucus will get more and more stretchy and eggwhite-like. Then after ovulation, it will dissapear again. If you're trying to get pregnant, this is a great time to have intercourse...to add to the pool of little swimmers from Sunday :-) Hope that makes sense!
