Confused regarding my body process

Patient

Q: Dear Doctor,
I need some information to understand my body and its processes better. I have PCOS and approximately 40 - 43 day cycle. I have been TTC since January 2012.

LMP - 4 December 2013
From CD2 - CD6 - I took Fertab 50 mg and M2Tone
From C11 - CD15 - I took Mucinex and Alka-UR

I ovulated on 18th or 19th December (CD 15 or 16) (confirmed by Doctor through scan. Largest follicle on right ovary missing and ovulation fluid present)

Since CD19 I started taking Duphaston - 1 tablet daily and will stop on CD25.

I have noticed a lot of clear and slippery Cervical Mucus for the past 3 days and it is continuing. I don't understand this, because I thought CM occurs before ovulation. Could you please explain this. Thank you very much.
