What is egg white discharge?

Index

The fertile stage is very important for the couple who want to have children, especially for the woman. One of the signs of this phase is precisely the fertile mucus, that is, the well-known egg white discharge. However, did you know that this mucus is not necessarily a discharge?

Leakage most of the time means that there is something wrong with the woman’s body. So, instead of saying egg white discharge, it refers to fertile secretion in another way: egg white mucus. Egg white mucus is nothing more than mucus from a woman’s fertile period. It demonstrates that the organism is fit for pregnancy at that time.

Men are fertile every day, without depending on a cycle. Women are not fertile for every day of their menstrual cycle. Therefore, nature shows signs that the body is preparing itself, and when it is ready for conception.

Egg white mucus is the result of a very intense hormonal stimulation in the female organism, very different from the common white mucus in a good part of the cycle. The fertile period begins with a hormone released by the pituitary gland in the brain, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) . Women are already born with all their eggs, and this hormone sends the message that the follicles that contain the eggs must begin to mature.

Then the luteinizing hormone (LH) comes into play and stimulates the growth of the follicles. These follicles release estrogen, which is responsible for many important parts of the cycle. Estrogen is responsible for the formation of egg white mucus and its appearance. The more slippery and thinner it is, the closer ovulation also happens.

When It Happens and Benefits of Egg White Mucus

Normally, egg white discharge starts to happen on the first day of the fertile period. When the follicles reach about 12 mm, it may already be possible to feel the effects of the hormones on the cervical mucus.

It can start out thick, like a hard gelatin, and it will become more malleable as the days go by. However, it is possible that the woman has only the thinnest mucus, and that does not mean any kind of problem. In fact, soap-type mucus is the most fertile of all. It’s that kind of mucus that doesn’t stretch, but it’s very slippery. Egg white discharge consists of water, substances that make it malleable and other compounds.

However, egg white discharge is not only that, it has other functions during the fertile period. In addition to providing greater mobility to sperm, egg white mucus is also able to nourish and keep them alive for a long time.

In the case of women who produce little or no fertile mucus, there is the option of special lubricating gels to help with fertility. In addition to improving vaginal lubrication, they improve the conditions of the vaginal canal for sperm by emulating and playing exactly the role of fertile mucus. This is the case of  FamiGel , the only fertility-friendly lubricant approved by ANVISA in Brazil. You can  purchase your FamiGel here  in our store.

If the man’s sperm are healthy, it is possible that they will stay alive inside the body waiting for the egg for at least 48 hours, even surviving for about 4 days. So the fertile period is longer than just ovulation itself, since the egg lives only for about 24 hours in the body.

Lubricating sexual arousal is not the same as egg white mucus, although they are similar in appearance. The fertile period can bring greater sexual desire to the woman and the mucus will become more abundant. A tip to know the difference is to rub a little of the secretion between your fingers. The fertile cervical mucus does not dry quickly, while the lubrication of the excitation evaporates more quickly.

The large hormonal stimulus at this stage is also responsible for the thickening of the endometrium . It is important to help with the implantation of the baby and to carry the pregnancy forward. It is in the endometrium that the embryo shelters initially, until the formation of the placenta.

Remember, date for a week from the first sign of egg white mucus, at least every other day to increase the chances of fertilization. If getting pregnant is not the goal, then it is recommended that you do not have unprotected sex for 10 days.
