What happens to cervical mucusearly pregnancyé I would consider a pregnancy test a way moreaccurate indior of pregnancy. I've been monitoring my cervical mucus totrack fertility; I want to know how it changes if I get pregnant. When you ovulate, the cervical mucus getsthinner, clearer, more watery. Yes, and it does that when you ovulate andthe egg is prime, versus the body temperature spike that happens a day after you ovulate. After that 24 hour expiration date, the cervicalmucus goes back to being thick, white and
gooey. What does it do if I'm pregnanté In the first days, it will be the normal thick,white and gooey. The biggest change will be that the cervical mucus won't be wiped outby your period. A lack of a period can be a sign of pregnancy,but it can also mean you're so stressed out that your period skipped. If you were tracking your fertility via cervicalmucus, you probably wouldn't see a shift due to ovulation if a health condition hasshut that down.
So if I don't have a period because of anout of whack thyroid or too strict diet, the cervical mucus will remain unchanged. Unless you are not having a period becausesomething else is wrong. That would make the cervical mucus ultrathickand usually other colors like green tinged or yellow. A yeast infection can make it thicker too,and smell fishy. If only that could be a sign of pregnancy. It could be a sign of diabetes too, if youkeep getting infections.
What happens if I got pregnanté It will be the same thick, white or creamcolor, sticky stuff throughout the pregnancy. The difference is that during pregnancy, thecervix usually makes more. I've heard of women having so much cervicalmucus that they need to wear a pad to contain it. They sometimes do, but that is usually inthe second or third trimester, notthe first week or two. I heard there were changes.
You might see a few spots of bloodthecervical mucus when the embryo implants. That could be mistaken for the start of aperiod. Except your period should not start. The morecertain changes are the cervix going back up after conception but not as high as normal,and hardening a little but not as hard as normal. You're right, a pregnancy test is way moreobvious.
What Kind of Discharge Do You Have During Pregnancy
What kind of discharge do you have duringpregnancyé It's like a waterfall. Excuse meé Vaginal discharge is normal for all women,and it just gets worse during pregnancy. It's embarrassing. So wear absorbent pads so it doesn't affectyour clothes. You can use the same pads you do when you are having your period. 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. Brown discharge sometimes happens, especiallyafter minor vaginal tears after sex. However,
if you see bright red blood, you need to seea . Because I'm miscarrying. Or the placenta is separating, or you haveplacenta previa. Or you'relabor, early or not. What if it is another color like yellow orgreené You might have a yeast infection or STD. Pregnantwomen, especially those with high blood sugar, are at risk of horrible yeast infections. And what if it is clearé
It might be normal discharge, or you mightbe losing amniotic fluid. Ifdoubt, you need to get tested. Very much so. What if it is a big globé Then you might have lost the mucus plug, andthen you need to see the because it's a sign of labor. How do you know all thisé Believe me, I have seen it all.
