Am I Ovulating If I Never Have Fertile Mucus?

Dear Midwife,
I have been trying to conceive for 6 months with no luck yet. I have read about checking cervical mucus to determine ovulation and have been trying this for the last 3 months but I have never seen this egg white discharge that I have read should occur at ovulation. Does this mean that I am not ovulating? Is it normal for all women to have this mucus? I normally have very little mucus at all for most of my cycle with a little creamy discharge for one or two days before my period starts. My period is always regular every 28 days.

Miscarriage Facts

Intercourse, falling, and exercise does not typically cause a miscarriage. The fetus is well protected by the mother's bones and muscle as well as by the amniotic fluid. There is also no evidence that conceiving while taking birth control pills increases the risk of miscarriage.
