There are a lot of women who will experience having vaginal discharge, especially when they are pregnant. This can make it harder for women to know if the mucus plug has already been released. You will be able to distinguish a mucus plug when you see something that is similar to discharge, but it will look like it is made out of jelly. It may also be thicker as compared to the typical discharge. Another thing that you will notice about the mucus plug is its appearance may be a bit different. The discharge can be a bit clear, but there may be times when it can also be bloody. This is considered normal. It is best to have discharge checked, especially if you feel that it is a bit abnormal from your usual.

Some people may assume that a mucus plug is something that has come from your ear, but this is not true at all. A mucus plug is something that can be released by the cervix. Vaginal discharge will also go out of the vagina, but there is a difference with the way that these things look like. A mucus plug will look like it is made out of jelly. It is not surprising at all if it would appear to be stringy. Vaginal discharge is normally very watery, although it would depend on whether your reproductive system is healthy or not. Regular checkups will always help to ensure that all types of discharge that you are experiencing are normal. A mucus plug may sometimes appear to be bloody.
