Natural fertility and mucus observations in a women’s cycle to achieve pregnancy

Observing cervical mucus is a natural way to track fertility and increase the chances of conception. The consistency and amount of cervical mucus changes throughout a woman’s menstrual cycle, indicating different stages of fertility.

During the first phase of the menstrual cycle, after menstruation, the cervical mucus is usually dry or sticky. As the body prepares for ovulation, the mucus becomes more abundant, thinner, and stretchy, resembling egg whites. This fertile cervical mucus helps to nourish and protect sperm, making it easier for them to reach the egg.

Women can observe their cervical mucus and look for changes in consistency, colour, and pattern. It is also recommended to track the changes in cervical mucus on a chart or calendar to better understand the pattern of their cycle.

In addition to observing cervical mucus, natural fertility methods involve monitoring other signs of fertility, such as basal body temperature. Basal body temperature is the body temperature at rest, taken first thing in the morning before getting out of bed. It rises slightly after ovulation and stays elevated until the next menstrual cycle. 

By monitoring these signs, women can identify their fertile window and increase the chances of conception. It’s important to note that natural fertility methods are not foolproof.
