Mucus Plug Before Ovulation
Like material that functions to moisten and protect inner body surfaces.

Had intercourse on the day I started ovulating after we was done went to clean up wiped what looked like a mucus plug with a little bit of blood on it?
Probably normal.: During ovulation your cervix will emit a clear, stretchy discharge. The post coital bleeding you have described, "a little bit of blood", may be normal. However, infection can also cause this type of bleeding. So, a visit to the gynecologist is warranted. Also, if you are trying to get pregnant make sure you are taking a prenatal vitamin.
I experienced spotting, cramps and cervical fluid that looks like the mucus plug photos on google. On CD20, not sure when I ovulated, what does it mean?
I'm 8 weeks pregnant and had sex last night. This afternoon there was what looked like ovulation mucous, no blood. Is this the mucous plug? Worried!
Yes: During early pregnancy your hormones are elevated. These hormones my increase your cervical mucus, or may increase natural vaginal discharges. There is no concern as long as you are not bleeding or cramping.
Possible: The cervical mucous is thick and sticky so it will try to stay in the cervix. However, as you dilate the mucous will inevitably begin to pass out of the vagina. You could notice large clumps of mucous but you may only see an increase in the amount of vaginal discharge as the mucous plug goes away.See 1 more doctor answer
Could be: Could be other colors like light red brown, yellowish the main thing is the mucus is thick and may or may not come out at once could come out over a number of days, if the discharge is thin call your OB as it could be rupture of membranes or if u are not sure always call your OB like I instruct my pts to call me.See 1 more doctor answer
Not necessarily: The mucus plug is made up of thick cervical mucus that your body forms as soon as you're pregnant. The mucus protects and prevents anything from traveling up the cervix. 72 hours before labor, your cvx begins to change and the mucus loosens and mixes w/ blood from cervical change until it falls out as a "plug." Your cvx will continue to make mucus and you may have more discharge afterwards.See 1 more doctor answer
Mucus from Cervix: During Pregnancy, the cervical canal is plugged with mucus. During the later stages of pregnancy, the mucus plug can come out of the cervix and is seen by the expecting mother. This is a "lost" mucus plug. It may reform and mean nothing. Sometimes--especially if bloody, it heralds the onset of labor.
Please ask your OB: All? S like this esp at the end of your pregnancy should be directed to your OB as your OB knows your situation and that is part of their job to answer all? S u have, it could happen soon or never happen, losing your plug does not correlate with rupture of membranes, my advise to you is don't go past your due date 39-40 wks is the ideal time to deliver for the baby, I induce everyone by 40 wks.
No: I haven't found that mucous plug is a good predictor of when a woman goes into labor. Women lose it at 35 weeks all the time and then go on to deliver weeks and weeks later. If you're having contractions or bleeding, definitely go to l&d, but rest assured that you're unlikely to deliver premature. Have doctor check your cervix at next visit, that is a greater predictor and will yield more info.
NOt a good idea: Since lakes can harbor a lot of germs and now you don't have as much protection for your baby. How about a nice long walk around the lake instead? Good luck with L&D.
Yes: You can loose the mucus plug with or without bleeding.
Mucus plug: The mucus plug for lack of a more elegant visual looks like a ball of snot with some blood mixed in with it. A woman can lose the plug before onset of labor or even during labor.
100% effaced, baby "dropped" and I lost my mucus plug. How likely do you think it is that my baby will come soon?
Soon: But impossible to say when, what is the dilation, and what is your gestational age?
