What does a jelly like, stretchy cervical mucus means in my body? Is it a sign that egg and sperm finally met?
No: The cervical mucous consistency is determined by the hormones that are dominant in your body at given time in cycle. Your mucous is thinnest during ovulation and thicker at other times in cycle. One can't base pregnancy on mucous consistency. Best is a urine pregnancy test when you miss your period. Mucous is a little like tea-leaves, there's only so much you can read into it. ...Read more

How is it that on the mini pill cervical mucus becomes too thick for sperm to pass through, but is still thin enough to let menstrual fluid out?
Sperm are delicate!: Thickened of cervical mucus causing a barrier is one of the ways the mini-pill works, but it also inhibits ovulation in about 50% of menstrual cycles. The short answer is that the amount of cervical mucus thickening that results seems to prevent the passage of most sperm, but the mass of menstrual blood flow is stronger & is able to pass. I believe it is a simple force of flow & gravity issue:) ...Read more

If your mucous penetration test was low, I would discuss the implications of that with your Dr when he returns. There are factors that can affect these test results. ...Read more
