Cervical mucus could be early pregnancy discharge. But it could also be:

  • Normal vaginal discharge.
  • Yeast infection discharge.
  • Ovulation discharge.

Here is more input from WikiAnswers Contributors:

  • I remember seeing that thick stuff that looked like snot on my tissue and thinking, "What is this?" I certainly experienced that stuff during my two pregnancies.
  • I had a doomed pregnancy a few months ago with a miscarriage at only about 6 weeks, and I did have the same excess of "snotty" discharge. I am now confirmed pregnant at about 5 weeks and am experiencing the same thing! So I think it can be a symptom, but not a guarantee that you are pregnant.
  • I had an increase in cervical mucus and remember thinking how odd that was because I am not normally like that. I was, in fact, pregnant.
  • I am no expert, but this would be my third pregnancy and I am showing those same signs. I would say like ovulating but milky. Yes usually I am dry a few days out of the month but not this month.
  • I noticed a lot of cervical mucus when I became pregnant, which was unusual before my period. (I miscarried at 8 weeks.)
  • My husband and I have been trying only for a month or so now. I was also curious about this question. Sometimes ejaculate can look a lot like cervical mucus, and it is difficult not to confuse the two.
  • How about if you are still discharging after your missed period, its been 2 weeks and a day since i had unprotected sex, and My periods are very regular and yet I don't have it. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative, I suppose I am too early on taking it. I have headaches/bloating/fatigue/frequent urination/missed period/nausea but not vomiting/cramping/and discharge. Do you suppose I could be pregnant?

Dryness is not a sign of pregnancy and is normal after ovulation. Typically there is more mucus while pregnant. If you're concerned and have other symptoms take a test.

Creamy cervical mucus (called leukorrhea) may be a pregnancy symptom. However, if the cervical mucus is more watery, this may be a sign that your period is coming as watery cervical mucus may indicate the breakdown of the corpus luteum -- the body left on the ovary after the release of the egg. The breakdown of the corpus luteum happens if pregnancy has not been achieved.

I am wondering this too and I have read on several sites that white or yellowish creamy mucus is a sign of early pregnancy... hey docs, we need more research on this!

No, it is a sign of fertility though. During the most fertile stage of a woman's cycle, the cervical mucus becomes thinner, may become cloudy or clear, and becomes stringy or stretchy. This is called spinnbarkeit, and shows that ovulation is approaching. If you want to get pregnant this is a good time to have sex, since spinnbarkeit is less hostile to sperm, and can allow sperm to live up to 5 days. If you are trying to avoid pregnancy, abstain from unprotected sex at this time to minimize the chance of conception occuring.

Nipple tenderness can be a sign of your period or early pregnancy. Take a pregnancy test if you think you're pregnant.
