  • if it's in the anus it's not cm, it's fatty mucus from what you have eaten being expelled

  • I know it would not be CM. I should have been more clear. Could it be from increased estrogen? Could it be because maybe i am pregnant?

  • I wouldn't think this would be caused from pregnancy... there is probably something wrong with you if you're secreting mucus from your anus. I would call a doctor and ask.

  • The only time I've ever had that happen is at the end of a stomach virus. Perhaps you had a stomach bug that had mild symptoms?

  • Having mucus coming from your bum means that you have expelled all of what is in there and are now expelling the mucus that helps moved the stool along. This can happen if you are pregnant or not. Being pregnant can cause loose stool because of the increased hormone levels. Also when you are pregnant you will experience increased pressure in your lower lower belly that can feel like you have to run to the bathroom.
