Cervical Mucous or Mucous plug! Help!!

23 weeks with mucous discharge, was in ER last night, everything was fine. I came home and had sex [tmi but w/e] and this evening i've had a lot of mucous discharge...can this be a bi-product of sex? L&D didn't tell me to come in b/c last night my cervix was closed when I had an exam.
I'm a wreck b/c I don't know if the doc understands! Has anyone ever had mucousy discharge 24 hrs after sex?!

  • The mucous discharge is normal, especially after sex. With your cervix closed the sperm has no where to go and has to come back out. I was very mucous-y with my first but not so bad with this one. It is just one of the changes your body is going through.

  • well I lost my plug at 20 weeks...

    don't over worry though. My baby was born at 36w2d without medical intervention to stop it other than some limited activity.

  • If they checked you out and your cervix was not dilated at all, I wouldn't worry about it. Pregnancy can change your cervical fluid and mixing it with sperm changes it further.
