When we talk about fertility, the first thing that comes to mind is ovulation or fertile days. However, there is another factor that can help you determine your fertility period - the cervical mucus. Observing your cervical mucus can benefit you more than you think. The cervical mucus acts as a natural ovulation calculator and hence, can predict your fertile days the best. When the body releases an egg during ovulation, the cervix produces a mucus fluid that acts as a helpful medium for the sperm as it coasts through the reproductive tract on its way to meet the egg. The cervical mucus is closely related to your levels of estrogen and is a primary sign of fertility. 

Cervical mucus changes in consistency and appearance throughout the menstrual cycle, depending which day of the cycle you are on. The cervical mucus is a key indicator of where you stand in your fertility cycle and how likely you are to get pregnant around a particular day. Knowing which consistency represents which level of fertility will greatly help you understand your body and track your fertility better.

The most fertile cervical fluid is the clear mucus. The clear mucus is referred to as egg-white cervical mucus because it is similar to the popular breakfast food, pre-scramble, in color and consistency. Egg white cervical mucus is slippery and when held between two fingers, you should be able to stretch it about 1 to 2 inches without breaking. This type of cervical mucus allows the sperm to easily make its way into the cervix. It plays a fundamental role in conception, transporting the sperm and helping it survive all the way up to the point when it reaches the waiting egg. 

As you approach ovulation, the body experiences its highest estrogen levels, causing the cervix to produce more of the "fertility" kind cervical mucus. You can track your cycle and fertile days on Ela. When you observe your cervical fluid to be egg white in consistency and color, know that you’re in the middle of the most fertile days of your cycle. Also, that means it’s baby-making time!
