  • It's a wad of mucous and blood. Really nasty looking. It can come out gradually or all at once. Some people don't even lose their plug. I never seen mine come out. It probably did when I had my baby or after. Sex doesn't help it come out but sperm helps thin out your cervix.

  • For me it's a wad of yellow mucous, haven't seen any blood at all. I've been loosing bits of my from the early months of the pregnancy. Now if your a little bit dilated, sex and the sperm will cause the plug to thin a bit and you may loose part of the plug. That happened with me and we stopped having sex cause of that and I had a preemie the first time. Good news is, most of the time the plug regrows.
