Remains same: The amount of discharge doesn't change, but the consistency is thick. If you are trying to determine if you might be pregnant, discharge isn't the best marker. If you're worried, take a pregnancy test, as that's the best marker. Discharge changes mid-cycle when it becomes thin and watery. At other ends of the cycle it is thicker. ...Read more

Cervical mucus increased 5 days before period then very little discharge 4 days after. Never had so much come out 5 days before af. Am I pregnant?
