No: The clear stringy cervical mucus is not a result of sex, but a result of a hormonal change during the menstrual cycle and is consistent with ovulation. Lastly, the thin stringy cervical mucus is more conducive to sperm travel, but again, does not happen because of sex, but because of the hormones in your menstrual cycle.
