Ah girls, in the fight to get pregnant we end up forgetting a super important ally! The mucus! Yes, cervical mucus can help when you get pregnant did you know? It can help a woman trying to find out what hormonal phase a woman is in and whether she is close to ovulation or whether she is still far away, etc.
You know that white mucus that we see when we do the swab test or cervical test ?
When Mucus Appears
When we menstruate the body releases progesterone , in some cases it starts right after the end of menstruation . When the bleeding ends, the blot and everything else, the whitish mucus begins. This mucus is progesterone, a sign that the body has continued the cycle.
When the time comes to ovulate the body begins to release another hormone that matures the follicle and thus the egg consequently. Anyway, the mucus of the fertile period is gelatinous, slippery and has an aspect similar to that of egg white, this mucus is super rich in vitamins and minerals.
It has a temperature and a consistency that greatly favors the survival of the sperm inside the uterus for up to 72 hours ! In some rare cases it can survive up to 110 hours, but this in very, very favorable conditions.
When to Date
So what is the “cat jump”? Dating every other day . But and even if it is not enough, know that some doctors advise only dating on the right days to allow time to “fill up” the sperm reservoir, but I have seen several cases of girls who date every day in the fertile period and it works very well .
Use of Lubricants
But can it happen that a woman does not have so much cervical mucus that favors pregnancy and what to do in these cases? Nowadays there are some gel lubricants that can help, play the role of mucus and even help sperm to have better mobility, like FamiGel.
There are other brands that can be found only abroad with a higher value, but it is still worth investing because they are appropriate for the design. Some brands of these lubricating gels are:
- Conceive Plus Also in Easy version
- Zestica Fertility
- Yes Baby
The Pre-seed, I already had an experience with it and I really liked the result. I read the package insert and there it says it has some vitamins like calcium, magnesium and also has an appropriate alkalinity for the survival of the semen.
Most of these lubricants are water based and therefore do not harm sperm. Of course, it does not have the same vitamins and consistency as natural lubrication, but it helps a lot for those who do not have so much mucus.
It is worth thinking about your need and how important the investment is ok? Whenever you see the elastic mucus flirt a lot! It is a sign that ovulation is very close!
Good luck and see you next time!

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
