For the last week, i have noticed that my cervical mucus has become slightly discoloured and has come in clumps a few times a day. At first i thought it was nothing and it was just the regular mucus because it was during tfhe ffmidfdlfw of my cycle and it was just a bit different from normal but it has been like this for about a week and im starting to get a little bit worried. I have had a lot of stresses lately and i havent been feeling very well either so im sure that all these things are contributing to it but you just can't always be sure.

Hi! There are certain medications that can change cervical mucus. There are also some health conditions that can affect the mucus pattern these include: poly-cystic ovarian syndrome, menopause, coming off the pill, breastfeeding, infections such as thrush, vaginitis, nutrient deficiencies especially zinc, calcium, magnesium, vitamin A and Iron. Fertile mucus will often look clear and be quite stretchy, it is often described as raw egg white. Infertile mucus may have a thicker appearance and can appear absent, gluggy or claggy. It is often white or yellowish in color. Generally mucus should be white/pale yellow or clear and should not smell offensive. If it is darker yellow or green, smells bad, and / or itches - it could be a sign of thrush or yeast (Candida) infection so get it checked out. If you suffer from recurrent yeast infections you may need to look at alternative remedies or lifestyle changes to nip it in the bud.
