Utilization of the timing of the change in vaginal mucus to a clear slippery discharge at ovulation is proposed as a method for family planning. Correlations between the water content of the vaginal mucus, serum luteinizing hormone (LH) titers and basal body temperature in 12 women with regular ovulatory cycles were studied. Before this procedure can be recommended for fertility control, the effects of vaginal infection, cervical erosion, pelvic pathology and coitus on the water content of the vaginal mucus should be determined.
