You may notice changes in cervical mucus in early pregnancy that can be one of the earliest signs of pregnancy. Early signs of pregnancy can show up as changes in cervical mucus. Rather than getting a sharp drop in estrogen and progesterone, which triggers the onset of menstruation, the cervical mucus will increase under this hormonal influence and will be thick white cervical mucus.
There are unique changes in the cervical mucus that obviously indicate that a person is ovulation. Along with other ovulation symptoms, such as pain on one side of the pelvis when the egg is released, there are cervical mucus changes that indicate signs of ovulation. When ovulation occurs, ideally the mucus should be stringy and stretchy; it should stretch at least a few inches between your index finger and forefinger.
