TMI coming up..

Been having cramps for a couple of days, although not due a period.

Went to loo and felt something 'there' , got a tissue, and saw a big blob of jelly come out my vagina. It's a little cloudy but mostly clear, about the size of my thumb or bigger. No smell. Thick like jellyish.

Cramps worse after it came out.

I'm not seriously worried or anything, just what the is this?? Does anyone know??

Is there any chance you could be pregnant?

ArbitraryNameChange Fri 19-Jun-20 16:23:16

Just discharge? It can take many forms and be quite jelly like

AristotleAteMyHamster Fri 19-Jun-20 16:24:55

Are you mid-cycle? I sometimes get this at around the time I’m ovulating. Always just put it down to “weird things bodies do”

WhatWouldDominicDo Fri 19-Jun-20 16:29:43

Could it be an early miscarriage?

SpunBodgeSquarepants Fri 19-Jun-20 16:34:15

It's just egg-white cervical mucous, completely normal! Just means your body is getting ready to ovulate.

Are you absolutely 100% certain you aren't preggers?

I always have this mid cycle around ovulation but would say it became more obvious in my 40s

GeorgeTheFirst Fri 19-Jun-20 16:38:36

It's just The Blob. Normal around ovulation sometimes especially as you get older

Katinthedoghouse Fri 19-Jun-20 16:39:07

Sperm ? Lubricating jelly ?

poptypingchef Fri 19-Jun-20 16:40:25

Its egg white cervical mucus that teamed with the cramps means you are probably ovulating

itsmdhbnsu Fri 19-Jun-20 16:48:12

I'm in early 30s, 2 DC.

I have PCOS so cycles can be all over the place. I do mark them on an app when they come.

Day 18 in cycle.

Using withdrawal method all the time except if dtd when I'm actually bleeding when don't withdraw. I know, I know!! But as a method it's worked for us for years and years. Hormonal methods cause awful effects for me (tried loads under a complex contraceptive clinic at one point), coils caused bad pains which never settled, and he isn't young or v healthy so shrivels a bit with condom faffing.

Last time dtd was 2nd June on first day of last period.

The cramps are weird, just like period cramps. I never normally get this type in thickness or a big blob.

No idea.

If you've had these symptoms what has it been?? Freaking out a bit now.

I've got PCOS and it's perfectly normal for me around ovulation smile

DelphiniumBlue Fri 19-Jun-20 16:53:38

Sounds like a p!ug. Could you be ( very) pregnant and about to give birth?

PuppyMonkey Fri 19-Jun-20 16:59:06

I used to get ovulation pain as well as the egg white mucus discharge thing.

On another note, we did withdrawal method successfully for many years. The one time it wasn’t successful resulted in DD2, who’s now 13.grin

Rubbleonthedouble1 Fri 19-Jun-20 16:59:20

I would be asking a medical professional if you could be pregnant?

Letseatgrandma Fri 19-Jun-20 17:00:16

Sounds like EWCM-are you ovulating?

Jellybeansincognito Fri 19-Jun-20 17:03:03

Do you need to do a bowel movement/ due to do one?

My cervix is pointed towards my back bit, when I’m due for a number 2 it pushes out stuff on my cervix so if I’m ovulating or due to, I often find a lot of this type of discharge before I go.

(Sorry, that’s rather TMI)

Greenmarmalade Fri 19-Jun-20 17:07:19

Plug? In labour? Sounds likely.

Either way, you need to speak to a GP.

You need to use condoms unless you want a baby- your system is insane.

ivfgottostaypositive Fri 19-Jun-20 17:07:32

I've ALWAYS had that and been pregnant

BlueJava Fri 19-Jun-20 17:07:35

Perhaps just discharge when you ovulate - it used to happen to me every month (no longer ovulate or have periods now).

itsmdhbnsu Fri 19-Jun-20 17:16:49

I don't know if I'm ovulating. I only mark the date I start a period and they are irregular do don't know when I'd ovulate.

I highly doubt I'm heavily pregnant. I've had periods (day 48, day 28 were last two). With both my DCs I got loads of symptoms from about 6 weeks all the way through and was huge.

@PuppyMonkey oh no. Well not oh no, I'm glad you have a lovely DC, but that is worrying. We've used it for years.

I'm not totally averse to more DC but he completely does not want any more, so I accepted that. Thinking about it actually, he is a grown man and knows about these things, yet actively participates in using withdrawal, so maybe we need to have a discussion. He'd be so so angry if I fell pregnant again.

Don't see what else could be used though.

I've tried pills, mini pills, patch, injection, two coils .. all give horrendous side effects of either migraines, serious depression, or severe pain.

Hoping it's just an ovulation thing then. Cramps still going strong.

If the cramps are strong maybe call 111?

Bloops Fri 19-Jun-20 17:20:39

Sounds normal to me, I get mild cramps and jelly like discharge during ovulation, too. Of course if your symptoms persist or you're worried, no harm in talking to a professional.

Missmonkeypenny Fri 19-Jun-20 17:23:08

Jelly discharge during ovulation is normal. If you're TTC, get snagging
