The cervical mucus is influenced by the hormones in your body and changes its consistency. Essentially, there are the following distinctions:
no cervical mucus
creamy cervical mucus
glassy / egg-white-like / stretchy cervical mucus
The closer you get to ovulation, the more oestrogen is produced by the maturing egg and the more glassy, spinnable and egg-white-like your cervical mucus becomes.
You can start observing the cervical mucus directly in the morning after removing the trackle. Pay attention to what you feel, see and sense. Enter your observation directly into the trackle app. Now you can see your current fertility status in the turquoise tab of the trackle app.
The quality of cervical mucus varies not only over the course of a cycle – it can change throughout the day as well. So it is important to monitor it several times a day.
Our tip: before each visit to the toilet, wipe your vaginal entrance with a clean finger or a piece of toilet paper and check whether you find cervical mucus and how it feels and looks.
If you notice your cervical mucus quality has improved later in the day, correct your information directly in the app and then check your fertility status again. Always enter the best observed quality of the day.
