It is actually very true that it is a little bit gross to think about it, but paying attention to your vaginal discharge can reveal some important info to you.
The discharge from your genital organ may change during your monthly cycle, so you might notice some difference in the texture, the color, consistency, amount and also the smell, as Doctor Scott, an ob-gyn an Indiana University Health has noticed. What is most noticeable from these changes that happen is what happens during your ovulation. When preparating to help the sperm reach the egg, this discharge from the vagina tends to become thin and slippery and also stretchy like egg whites, she explained. And so, in case you are trying to get pregnant, the best time to make love is when you start noticing this type of discharge.
Because of the fact that the vaginal discharge is very related to hormonal fluctuations, it is actually no surprise that pregnancy, nine months of one big hormonal fluctuation, may increase it. Therefore, many pregnant woman have an increase in discharge and it can take on a white yellow tinge, as Dr. Scott said. The following are some skin and beauty surprises that can happen during pregnancy.

I fit is that you are pregnant and suddenly notice an uptick in mucousy discharge, congrats, because you are about to have a baby! That is because the cervix dilates in preparation for delivery, and the mucous discharge increases and might mean labor is beginning , and some women even experience a large portion of discharge, often referred to as the mucous plug. You do not need to get too excited just yet as the beginning stages of labor can take a long time and days, and sometimes even weeks.
