Re-started Cerazette after giving birth but am I ovulating?

I gave birth to my first baby five weeks ago. I re-started Cerazette 22 days after giving birth (the leaflet says if you start between 21-28 days after giving birth you are instantly protected). To be on the safe side I waited until day 8 of pill taking before me and DP dtd and then we dtd again last night (day 12 of pill taking).
Today I have had a clear jelly like discharge which I know can mean that I am ovulating. Could it be that Cerazette isn't working properly and I am still ovulating and if so does that mean I could be seeing baby number two on the way a lot earlier than planned? Starting to get anxious now!

sorry I don't really know the answer but it sounds a bit like it. could it be from after DTD if u know what I mean though?

I often got discharge like that after dtd - even when I was on Cerazette. Never got pregnant! (But did quite quickly after coming off it).

cerazette thickens cervical mucus so it may be that

cerazette thickens the mucus to help prevent sperm from getting to the womb. It could also be a mix of mucus and sperm.
