I noticed spotting around the time I conceived,though it wasn't nearly as much as a period.
And you probably saw white discharge afteryou conceived. I was worried it might be an STD. If you think you have an STD, you need toget treated now so that it doesn't adversely affect the baby. There are horrifying Googleimages of birth defects caused by sexually transmitted diseases. I'm already paranoid about the baby. I don'teven want to dye my hair, paint my nails or do anything else.

My Cervical Mucus Looks Like Snot
Tell me why my cervical mucus looks like snot. I do not know why you are looking at it atall. It is supposed to be an easy way to determineyour fertility. True. When it is clear, watery and very slippery,that's when you are ovulating. It is supposed to transition to that formwhen you are ovulating because the higher hormone levels trigger it. The mucus is like raw egg white mucus youcan stretch an inch or two means at your most fertile. The watery type is second best, andthat's the type the day before and after
the fertile peak. My mucus is way thicker than that. It is normally white, thick and sticky. It is thick, white and sticky but has clumpsin it. The tacky cervical mucus is the least fertiletype. And clumps of it together means you'rean infertile period. The consistency seems different though. It normally gets thicker and a lot tackierwith a few clumped together pieces together
right before your period starts. And you mightnot normally be checking the cervical mucus at that point because a period would proveyou didn't conceive. I have a week or so before my period is due. It can get thicker and ier due to dehyationor use of decongestants. I'm not taking any decongestants. It gets whiter, thicker and heavier if youhave an infection. I thought it would change colors. If the cervical mucus is the color and consistencyof green snot, you need to talk to a .
Likewise if it is yellow. If it is yellow and thick, I'd think itwas a yeast infection. A fishy odor is the sign of a yeast infection.But any color of thick heavy mucus other than white means you need to get treatment foran STD. What if it is orange or has flecks of redin ité Red plus white means yellow or orange, andthe red comes from blood. Unless your period is starting, you have an infection. Or there's something else going on.
It is hard to get so dehyated that yourcervical mucus is as ied out as your constipation. I've heard the snot like consistency isgood. If you did conceive, you could see snot likechunks as the body puts out so much mucus it forms a plug to protect the baby. Thatcomes out when you'relabor too. All I can say is I promise that if I'm pregnant,I am not that far along.
