Many women who are trying to conceive monitor the changes in their cervix and cervical mucus, both of which go through various changes during the times of menstruation, ovulation and pregnancy. This guide will explain how having creamy cervical mucus before period as well as noting high soft cervix before period may be related to early signs of pregnancy.

As a woman’s body approaches ovulation, cervical mucus may become stretchy and resemble the appearance of egg whites. During ovulation the cervix will rise up and will have a soft texture, similar to the lips. The opening to the cervix will remain open to allow potential fertilization.

After ovulation, cervical mucus decreases in quantity and begins to dry up. The cervix will become lower, feel firmer and the cervical opening will remain closed.

It is important for a woman to be familiar with her own cycle and the changes her body makes as she ovulates. If a woman whose cervical mucus usually dries up after ovulation begins to notice creamy cm before period, this could be an early sign of pregnancy. Also during menstruation, the cervix is low and firm, just like the tip of a nose. However, after conception the cervix is higher, with a soft texture and remains closed.

Increased cervical mucus during early pregnancy is very common. This discharge is usually white in color, slightly thick and be milky in appearance. No odor should be present as well as it should not accompanied by any itchy or burning sensations.

In the early stages of pregnancy, the body produces more estrogen and increases blood flow to the vagina upon implantation. Incredibly, a pregnant woman produces more estrogen in one day than a non-pregnant woman will produce in approx. 3 years. Due to this hormonal change, an increased amount of cervical mucus is produced. The fluid will continue to be produced in the early months of pregnancy as it is used to form a mucus plug, which function is to protect the uterus of a pregnant woman.

The medical term for this creamy cm before period during early pregnancy is leukorrhea. It originates from the wall of the vagina and consists of normal vaginal bacteria. It is most likely noted in a woman’s underwear and is normal. However, should it have any accompanying symptoms such as itchiness, fever, odor, or it is bothersome in any other nature, it is important to rule out an infection.

Also keep in mind that experiencing creamy mucus or high soft cervix before period is not a true indication of pregnancy. Some women notice these changes along with others such as breast tenderness or frequent urination even when they are not pregnant.
