Mucus in my pants
'About a week after my last period I felt something sticky in my underwear. I found a wet and sticky ball of mucus. What is it?'
It sounds like this could be the mucus plug that is normally found in the entrance to the cervix. This can come away in the middle of the cycle, after ovulation, to form a sticky ball or long strand of jelly-like mucus. This is not usually anything to worry about, but if you are concerned, do have a chat with your practice nurse or doctor. It is always a good idea to make sure your cervical smear is up-to-date.
