Gooey discharge


I finished my period 2 days ago however, when I wipe after going to the loo, I’ve noticed a few times this weird gooey, stringy discharge (see pic). Any idea what it is??

Dear Unicorn,

I'm assuming you're not on any hormonal contraception, as I think you're describing mid-cycle or ovulatory discharge. Its composition is similar to egg white and the mucus can be pulled out as a long thin string (spinnbarkheit, German). This change in discharge often coincides with experiencing a slight twinge in your lower abdomen, which heralds the release of an egg from one of the ovaries.
