    Default What is it???

    Hi all,

    well ive been leaking this strange mucus. It looks like semen, but it can't be cause me and DH haven't DTD in a bit. Sorry if this is TMI but it is just feels like im constantly wet, and even though im "tidy" down there, its just sticking to everything!! When it goes on my pants it looks clear, but then drys to a white/ yellow crust. Also when i wipe myself after the toilet it is this white/ yellow colour as well. Though ive noticed over the past ay or two that it seems to be getting a darker yellow colour to it??

    Anyone else have this weird looking semen and is it normal??

    Sounds like excess cervical mucus to me. It's perfectly normal. I found that later in my pregnancy, I needed to wear liners.

    Yep, sounds like CM to me too. I've had that as well, and have to wear liners most days for the past 3-4 weeks
    If you're worried though get your midwife to check if you are leaking amniotic fluid.

    Definately sounds like excess cm and definately normal, but a complete PITA LOL. If it is your waters, have a smell and they should smell sweet/earthy and not salty/briny like semen.

    Sounds like CM to me. It is very common for your CM to increase late in your pregnancy

    Yeah. My ob says that a milky white dischage is normal.
    Very unattractive, and liners are definatly required...

    yes, ive had increased CM for weeks and weeks, its white or clear and it turns yellow when it dries (something about oxidisation when exposed to the air... ) anyway ask your midwife/doctor.

    panty liners are a must.
