Two hormones must be produced for normal ovulation to take place. The mature egg is stimulated by two hormones secreted by the pituitary (follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH).

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.
