Pregnant. Yellow mucus discharge and cramps. What does this mean?

I ve been having a yellow mucus discharge at 23 weeks. It started off heavy...then about a week later, it happened again. Then today, I went to the restroom, when I wiped there was a lite discharge. Same color, sticky, snot like. Just not as much. I noticed I cramped before I went to the restroom, I also noticed, since I write everything down in my calendar, that each time I ve had the discharge, the day before I had sex with my husband. I m worried I m losing my mucus plug in sections. I m only 23 weeks. I m worried. I haven t had any bleeding . Just discharge and lite cramps .

Discharge during pregnancy is normal during pregnancy. This discharge is usually clear. Since you have been frequently experiencing thick discharge you will need to visit your doctor.

Mostly the discharge should be harmless. But it is advisable to take an expert view. Does the discharge have a foul smell? do you have any irritation when urinating ? these questions will help the doctor to differentiate between a urine infection.

If the cramping experienced often you need to avoid strenuous activity.

further consultation is a must
