CM (cervical mucus) does not "dry up" after ovulation; it changes consistency and amount (usually after ovulation there is less CM, but does not mean that there is none).

If you had sex on Wednesday, you would not be pregnant for another 10-14 days. It actually takes this long for the fertilized egg in the fallopian tube to travel down to your uterus where it finds a cozy place to implant. Only then does your body "switch gears" and begin releasing "pregnancy hormones"...those hormones are what show up on a home pregnancy test as positive. If you do the math...this 14 days after ovulation is at the same time you would expect your monthly period, and is the reason why home pregnancy tests will not be accurate until AFTER you have missed your regular period. (Some hpt do say that they can detect pregnancy up to 5 days before an expected period, but they are not as accurate).

Have you thought that this excess discharge may also be semen? Ejaculatory fluid can be inside of your vagina for a few days, so if you had unprotected sex Wednesday night and are experiencing more discharge Saturday...it could be semen that you are noticing.

Hi Anonymous,
I am still a little confused. Are you concerned about possible sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)? As stated by Allison, mucus is pretty common and the consistency varies. You lost cm? What is cm?

Thank you for the update.

Women have vaginal discharge throughout their menstrual cycle, and the amount and consistency can vary.

If you are not having any symptoms, I am not understanding what your question or concern is...can you clarify?
