Q. Is this an infection or pregnancy? I am worried with the white odorless mucus discharge. My hubby and I are also trying for baby. I have browsed the web and found that this could be possible infection also. Is this an infection or pregnancy?

A. It’s a cervical discharge and mucus secreted may be majorly a sign of pregnancy. I too had the same symptom but was tested positive for pregnancy. At times it may be a normal vaginal discharge. Generally it will be a yeast infection. Just check for your body temperature changes as it indicates good for you. Your mucus will be like raw egg white, the more thick more chances for positive. Keep a check on these factors. I shall suggest you to visit the doctor to confirm the same instead of making your own conclusions.
