Vaginal Mucus

The mucus present in the vagina changes during the menstrual cycle, and this is something that can be detected by the woman, her partner or doctor in order to determine the time of ovulation.

For most of the month the vaginal mucus is thick and slippery, but at the time of ovulation it becomes clear and stringy. The change is actually quite easy to detect, as there is a marked difference between the two forms of mucus. The mount of vaginal mucus, and therefore lubrication, steadily decreases after the menopause.
