What does mucus plug at an early stage mean?


Posted by chapebella

My period was late for a few days, and today when I got it I had what seems like mucus plug come out of my vagina. I was a bit scared this week that I might've been pregnant, but I was on the pill. I don't really think I am pregnant, but I don't know what this means.

when the corpus lutem (what is left when your body releases an egg and what produces progesterone to sustain the luteal phase) breaks down it will often appear as watery or eggwhite cervical mucus. Most times this blends in with a bleed so it isn't noticed- but sometimes it happens like a day or so before flow.

It doesn't mean you were pregnant its something that is apart of a woman's cycle
