The other primary fertility sign is cervical fluid. Cervical fluid is produced by your cervix and changes throughout your menstrual cycle. It is what you will sometimes notice on your underpants at the end of the day. Cervical fluid is normal and healthy and tells the epic tale of your estrogen level over the course of your cycle. Normal cervical fluid varies widely from woman to woman. It can be cloudy, white, yellowish, clear, and even slightly pink. The consistency changes over the course of your cycle and usually goes a little something like this: None, for the first few days after your period ends. Then as your estrogen level begins to rise it goes from sticky or gummy, to creamy. As you approach ovulation, your cervical fluid may become clear, slippery and stretchy, like a raw egg-white. Then after ovulation, estrogen levels drop and progesterone takes over. Your cervical fluid will go back to being dry, or perhaps sticky for the remainder of your cycle, until you get your period, about 12 to 16 days after ovulation. Then you get your period, and the whole process starts again.
