I want to know what to expect in cervicalmucus 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 fluidwhen I have my period. So what does it normally look like right before I have my periodé If you are about to not have your period dueto pregnancy, you'll probably see heavy mucus and even solid masses. Solid masses and really heavy cervical mucuscan also be a sign of a sexually transmitted
disease. If the cervical mucus is yellow, green orreally 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 mucuswill start to dry out before your period starts, since the body does not want to waste materialwhen you're about to shed. I've heard there were other signs if I waspregnant. If you were pregnant, you might see dropsof blood mixed in with the cervical mucus
when the embryo implants. Or not, since itmay 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 startsé 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 thenI saw what newborn diapers looked like. The only standard effect is clear, wateryand clear mucus when you are ovulating, unless you have health problems interfering withovulation. 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 youovulate, usually white in color and thicker
than it was before you ovulated. Anything else I might noticeé If you do not see much difference in consistency,you may still see differences in the volume, which usually drops off right before yourperiod. What if it is cloudy or whiteé 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 meansgo to the .
And normal cervical mucus without a periodwhen you expect it means go to the too.
Oh hi! As you may havenoticed, your vagina does not come with an owner's manual. Although, I can tellyou that would have been really helpful and saved me a lot of infections growing up. Vaginas work basically like this. It's like a little ecosystem. It maintains and cleans itself.
The actual vagina, the inside, you never have to clean in there. And you don't ever wantto put anything in there. Well, nothing to clean in there. That includes douches,soaps, bleach. (squeals) What all that stuff doesis go all up in there, and it (bleep) everything up. And the vagina has good bacteria that
keeps you clean and healthy. By introducing soap ordouching, you kill off that good bacteria, and youcan mess up the delicate pH balance of the vagina, whichcan cause a yeast infection or also something calledbacterial vaginosis, which is characterized by a fishy smell. You can also get urinarytract infections from getting soap around your rurethra, your urethra.
Yeah, I can talk! So, any time you see thesoap, it's coming towards your vagina, you say, quot;Get away, soap! quot;We are not cool, be gone!quot; Now, in terms of keepingthe outside clean, the proper way to clean your vulva is to gently spread your labia or the lips, and then use some warm water and your hand
to gently rub betweenthe folds and clear off all the sweat and bacteria. quot;So, you mean I shouldn't use shampooéquot; No. quot;What about shaving creaméquot; Only on the hair part. quot;What about toothpasteéquot; That's for your teeth.
quot;Oh yeah.quot; Vaginas are not nearly asdirty as people think they are. You want dirtyé Probe someone's mouth. Warm water, your hands,a washcloth, or a loofah. That's all you need to stay clean. I swear on my vagina! I think a lot of the reasonwhy people scrub vigorously
