Feeling wet before your period?
In the first few days of the cycle, both estrogen and progesterone have low levels. The cervix does not produce fluid and you will not be able to distinguish it anyway as it will be mixed with the blood, endometrial tissue and the unfertilized egg. The sensation is hot wet.
Thick, creamy white discharge is usually seen before the menstrual cycle and is more common in women who take birth control pills. Conversely, the appearance of white discharge after the period, typically watery and transparent, can be indicative of an ovulation.
Sensations of increased sensitivity or tension in the breasts, and cramps in the lower abdomen in correspondence of the ovaries are other symptoms that often occur in the days before the start of the menstrual cycle, and can be accompanied by headache and back pain.
- menstrual cycle delay.
- small leaks or spotting.
- more intense urge to pee.
- nipple change.
- bleeding gums.
- whitish vaginal discharge.
During pregnancy, cervical mucus is sticky and opaque and thickens over the course of weeks. It is this mass of cervical mucus that produces the famous mucus plug that seals the cervix to protect the baby against germs and bacteria in the vagina.
In the first trimester, small dark red, tending to brownish losses may occur; they could be due to the breakage of some capillaries or to the implantation of the not yet optimal pregnancy.
White Vaginal Discharge
From the onset of pregnancy, some women notice the presence of milky-looking white discharge. This symptom may be the consequence of the thickening of the vaginal wall, a completely harmless phenomenon that begins almost immediately after conception.
Even if the duration of the menstrual cycle is different from the average of 28 days, therefore, the fertile period will always be about 14 days before the arrival of menstruation and in the 4-5 days preceding it.
While some pregnancy symptoms start showing up very early, most of the time, we won't notice anything right away. Usually everything that happens after intercourse, such as vaginal discharge or spotting, also has nothing to do with eventual conception.
If the egg is fertilized, it begins to divide and implants itself in the endometrium (at the blastula stage) 3 or 4 days after reaching the uterine cavity, ie 6-7 days after sexual intercourse.
Menstruation is defined as regular if it has a rhythm of 28 days, like the moon. Changes in more or less than a few days are considered normal and a delay of up to six days is still normal even in women who have regular cycles.
The menstrual cycle, in fact, is characterized by losses that have a bright or dark red color, while implantation spotting has a less intense shade, tending to pink or whitish, although sometimes they may have a color tending to brown.
If the leaks are white and gelatinous, they are a sign of a high amount of estrogen. These hormones are present mainly in the period of ovulation, one of the main causes of this type of secretions.
To stimulate the menstrual cycle, therefore, go ahead for hot showers and baths, but also for the hot water bottle bag to be placed on the abdomen several times a day. And to keep on hand even once your period has arrived, because heat is an excellent natural remedy for relieving menstrual pain.
The woman who does not want children should abstain from sexual intercourse between the 8th and 20th day of the menstrual cycle.
Don't rush to stand up after intercourse. Lying on your back for about 30 minutes can have some benefits. Whether it contributes to conception by helping seminal fluid stay in the vagina longer is a matter of debate. But it's still harmless.
If you are under 35 and in good health, it is perfectly natural for it to take up to a year. However, more time is needed if you are no longer very young; 67% of women over 38 who have regular unprotected sexual intercourse still become pregnant after two years of trying2.
It is called leukorrhea gravidarum. It is a physiological phenomenon, linked to the hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy. The leaks have a white color, and a sticky, mucous consistency.
The embryo nesting losses in the inner walls of the uterus can be white with red traces or bright red, light red or pink, while those preceding the arrival of the period are generally darker and tend to brown.
