The plug helps prevent bacteria from entering the uterus and creating an infection harmful to the developing fetus.Most women lose the mucous plug at or near the end of their pregnancy when the cervix begins to dilate in preparation for delivery. Because some women may begin dilating weeks before going into active labor, losing the plug does not necessarily mean birth is imminent.The mucous plug may be yellowish, brown or pink in appearance. Pink and brown indicates the presence of blood, and is nothing to be concerned about unless you're fewer than 36 weeks pregnant. In this case, call your doctor immediately, especially if you experience spotting or bleeding, which may indicate a condition called "placenta previa" (meaning the placenta has attached too low in the uterus) or "placental abruption" (meaning the placenta has detached from the uterus). Either complication could result in a medical emergency.Call your doctor immediately anytime you experience bleeding during pregnancy.
