  • it's a huge disgusting looking piece of thick rubbery mucus. it doesn't mean anything if you lose it.....it can grow back. it is made by your cervix. if it comes out (either in pieces or the whole thing), you will know because it's the nastiest thing i've ever seen lol.

  • I never even noticed mine, I lost it in pieces and it wasn't a funky color and didn't have any blood. It basically seals your cervix to prtect it against infection and irritation.
