There are unique changes in the cervical mucus that obviously indicate that a person is ovulation. Along with other ovulation symptoms, such as pain on one side of the pelvis when the egg is released, there are cervical mucus changes that indicate signs of ovulation. When ovulation occurs, ideally the mucus should be stringy and stretchy; it should stretch at least a few inches between your index finger and forefinger.
Discharge During Ovulation
Brown discharge during ovulation is quite normal around the time of ovulation. In several women, this sign can be more helpful than tracking small changes in their body temperature. This type of change in the vaginal fluid pattern will help a woman in knowing when she might be most receptive in getting pregnant. In case you are experiencing any other symptoms such as unusually frequent urination, burning during urination, itching, foul smelling discharge etc, you may want to consult your gynecologist and report your symptoms. These could be a symptom of some type of an infection or in extremely rare cases, brown discharge could indicate something more serious such as cancer.
