Variations in cervical mucus are common. The fluctuations of estrogen and progesterone can be easily affected by stress, weight gain/loss, exercise, lack of sleep, thyroid problems, and uterine issues such as adenomyosis or fibroids. Talk to your Dr about your vaginal dryness and what testing can be done to determine the cause.

Agree with Dr. Kratzberg. If vaginal dryness is interfering with sex, try using a water based lubricant like K-Y jelly.
