I want to know what to expect in cervical mucus just before period starts.
Your cervical mucus alternates between clear, watery and flowing when ovulating to sticky, white and gooey during normal times.
And it gets overwhelmed by menstrual fluid when I have my period. So what does it normally look like right before I have my period?
If you are about to not have your period due to pregnancy, you’ll probably see heavy mucus and even solid masses.
Solid masses and really heavy cervical mucus can also be a sign of a sexually transmitted disease.
If the cervical mucus is yellow, green or really smelly, you have an infection; at best, it is severe yeast overgrowth.
I know what that smells like.
If you are healthy, then the cervical mucus will start to dry out before your period starts, since the body does not want to waste material when you’re about to shed.
I’ve heard there were other signs if I was pregnant.
If you were pregnant, you might see drops of blood mixed in with the cervical mucus when the embryo implants. Or not, since it may not be enough to notice.
The lack of a period is something I’d notice.
The cervical mucus typically becomes drier, stickier and thicker right before your period.
It is normally, sticky and thick.
Fine, more of the same.
What happens after my period starts?
It becomes dry or you find no mucus at all, just menstrual shedding. After your period ends, the white cervical mucus starts up, which can make your mix pinkish.
I’d say this sounds disgusting, but then I saw what newborn diapers looked like.
The only standard effect is clear, watery and clear mucus when you are ovulating, unless you have health problems interfering with ovulation.
Or contraception that interferes with it.
Depending on what you’re using for contraception, that can happen. Injectables can kill your period, ovulation and all cervical mucus changes.
I am ovulating with my contraceptive method.
Then you’ll see heavier mucus after you ovulate, usually white in color and thicker than it was before you ovulated.
Anything else I might notice?
If you do not see much difference in consistency, you may still see differences in the volume, which usually drops off right before your period.
What if it is cloudy or white?
White is normal unless there is a whole lot, which is pus indicative of an infection. A little brown could mean your period is starting, or you have vaginosis.
So anything other than a normal period means go to the doctor.
And normal cervical mucus without a period when you expect it means go to the doctor too.
