I have noticed that slippery white mucus before, but I never knew its significance. It's nice to learn that it is an ovulation predictor of sorts.
Whenever I would discharge some of this mucus, I thought that I was about to start my period, because it felt like blood was moving out of me. It was usually a week or two later before I really started, though.
I would like to have a baby in the next few years. I don't know about buying kits and checking a calendar all the time, but observing cervical mucus sounds easy enough.
