Types of Cervical Mucus and Its Interpretation

Cervical mucus, which is also known as CM, is produced by the lining of the cervix as well as the cervical canal. The cervical canal is the passage between the uterus and vagina. During the early phase of a woman’s pre-ovulatory time, some women might experience dryness in their vagina, which means that there is less mucous.

As the cycle carries on, the ovulation mucous or the cervical mucous increases and it becomes sticky and cloudy. Before and during ovulation, the mucous is quite heavy.
