Cervical mucus is a fluid or sticky like discharge that flows out from the cervix a couple of days after menstruation leading up to ovulation.
During a woman’s cycle, the cervical mucus will change in consistency, thickness, colour and amount.
Our hormones communicate with specific glands within the cervix to create cervical mucus.
Cervical mucus is a important substance to know when you will ovulate in order to fall pregnant.
WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR?
Immediately following your period, you may feel dry. Therefore you might not notice any wet mucous on your undies.
Before ovulation, the consistency of your cervical mucus might be thicker, white or cloudy.
At Ovulation our hormones get to a peak & affects the way the cervical mucus may look as it becomes more alkaline. Now it looks clear and stretchy like egg whites consistency. But some women it may still be watery. At this alkaline state our mucus protects the sperm in order to find its way all the way up to our Fallopian tubes to our egg, in order to fall pregnant.
So this consistence is important if you wanna fall pregnant.
If your trying to not fall pregnant, be careful during the days you see this cervical mucus. It usually happens on the last day you see mucus.
