Stretchy mucus day after end of period?

6 replies

Hello I've name changed as people know who I am here.

I am wondering about cervical mucus after periods? I've just finished up, as in like yesterday was just some brown drops and today no blood that was visible at all.
However I've just been to the toilet and a large amount of stretchy discharge has come out (when I went for a wee)
Does anyone know is this normal after your period or maybe a sign I'm ovulating rapidly after my period?

I'll pop a picture in comments

I get this every month, OP. Some women get a second surge or estrogen just before their period. I went to the GP about it who confirmed it was normal.

Oh I’m sorry, I get it just before AF and now realise you mean after!

Can you do an ovulation test?

Is this normal just after period too?
Shall I go get bloods done? I'm paranoid because I haven't been able to pin point ovulation ever (not that it matters too much) I got pregnant first month of trying a few years ago (deliberately vague)
And then I've been using the withdrawal method for contraception anyway so no sperm inside me but I'm wondering if I could possibly be ovulating this quickly and that's why I've not spotted it with strips.
It might be too late to test by tomorrow then? If I do an ovulation test? I've always wanted to know.
My periods are really long like 35 days apart.
Thank you for getting back in touch with me
