During intercourse and certain times of the month I get a "cum=like substance" buts its really odd. It's clear, gel like,and kinda like gelatin. I heard somewhere you get it when you ovulate but this happens everytime during intercourse. What is this???

it's just vaginal fluid. your vagina secretes a filtered blood plasma during sexual arousal and it helps lubricate the vagina during penetration. the stuff is kinda whitish, slippery, but thick.

it mixes with cervical mucus. that's produced throughout the cycle. it gets kinda gelatinous and gooey near ovulation, but it's pasty the rest of the cycle.
