I have an about 30-day cycle. I don't chart for mucous, but I do make a general note of it; and I haven't seen anything ever since my period ended just less than a week ago. It should be around ovulation time by now, but nothing. Last week there wasn't even the thick non-fertile mucous I usually see at the end of my period. It's just completely dry, and I have no clue why. Did having manual sex on the last day of my period change anything? :/

(Oh, and I'm currently in a high-stress environment, and will be for the next month and half or so. Does that affect mucous? I thought it only changed cycle length...)

Thanks for your help!

Sex can't change anything about our menstrual cycle unless we become pregnant.

But women don't always ovulate: sometimes we skip, just like sometimes we'll skip periods. Or, you may simply ovulate later this month than usual OR just not be having mucus at the level this cycle you usually do.

Well, today's day 15, and yesterday I started having a thin clear discharge that afair resembles the kind you get around ovulation, except there seems to be pretty much a lot of it, and I had some spotting earlier today (along with this).

I'm feeling really confused now. Is this normal?

It doesn't sound unusual to me.

As long as it's not say, filling up a small pad, and it doesn't smell odd, you really don't have anything to worry about.

Spotting also wouldn't be that surprising, either. It just sounds like you're having a funky cycle, so don't get too hung up on small things.
