Already nervous wreck after bleeding after sex earlier this week - just started relaxing when today had a huge blob of jelly like discharge. I don't remember having a "show" with DS - induced labour - so am panicking now. Do I need to ring for advice, or is this normal?!?!
There was no blood at all in the discharge. I have just phoned the day unit and spoken to a midwife who talked through other signs, eg pain, blood, etc. SHe said to call back if anything else happened or if I had any other signs.
I feel ridiculous now as burst into tears after speaking to her and can't stop crying. I still feel so anxious, although a bit less so...am also irrationally and unfairly angry with DH for suggesting sex, as it has caused far more stress that it was frankly worth!
I've been having jelly-discharge since about ten weeks. It does seem to coincide with sex or extra walking about... however, I've had two or three swabs and a torch shone up there and there's nothing wrong.
Like you, I've been thinking it's my plug coming away in bits... but apparently it could just be a discharge that's normal for me. It's so worth getting checked out though, if only for reassurance, and if you get any more, put it in a sample bottle (yum!) to take with you.
Thanks Hawkmoth, I took the advice and had it checked out as I was still feeling anxious. I had an examination, all was fine and the Dr and midwife just found a small patch of "erosion" on my cervix - which is normal, and explains the bleeding after sex. The discharge was more than likely a "cleanout" (bleugh!) following the irritation and bleeding a few days earlier.
Am feeling much better now - thanks for your reply!
