Early Pregnancy Symptoms - Increased Cervical Mucous/ Vaginal Discharge

Increased vaginal discharge (cervical mucous) is a normal symptom of both early pregnancy and the later pregnancy stages.

Very often this vaginal discharge appears thick and white. Although a little unpleasant at times, this is usually nothing to worry about.

However, if you notice an unusual smell, colour, blood, or itching alongside it, consult your GP as other conditions such as thrush and cervical erosion may need to be ruled out!
