CERVICAL MUCUS The lining the opening of the cervix produces mucus in response to the hormones oestrogen and progesterone during a woman's menstrual cycle. The hormonal effect on the production of mucus is easy to see during the menstrual cycle, and it is a sign used in natural family planning to indicate when ovulation is close. Immediately after the end of a period, there is no mucus secretion to speak of. Over the next couple of weeks it becomes more apparent, initially sparse and opaque and then much more copious, watery and 'stringy' up to ovulation. After ovulation there is a dramatic change back to thicker, lumpier mucus that decreases in amount over the next couple of weeks to a period. As one of the sympto-thermic methods of natural family planning it can be enormously useful for some women, once they have 'learned' their individual symptoms to pinpoint ovulation and either achieve or avoid pregnancy. Cervical mucus is usually odourless and white or clear, unless you have some sort of va___al infection. This may be accompanied by itching around the vulva, too. You may find you are more prone to va___al infections during pregnancy. You may also find that, during pregnancy, because of the increase in the hormone progesterone you produce much more cervical mucus which is quite watery and may be a nuisance. Try using panty liners if this is a problem. Found here~~ http://www.babydirectory.com/cgi-bin/showPreg.pl?CERVICAL_MUCUS
