What happens to sperm when you are on birth control?

What is cervical mucus and what color can it be?

Cervical mucus changes are monitored for determining when ovulation occurs through the cervical mucus monitoring test. As your cycle progresses, your cervical mucus increases in volume and changes texture. The changes in the mucus that is secreted from the cervix reflect where you are in your cycle. The consistency of your cervical mucus changes during the cycle due to hormonal fluctuations. You are considered most fertile when the mucus becomes clear, slippery, and stretchy. Many women compare mucus at this stage to raw egg whites. Before collecting a sample, be sure to wash your hands first in order to prevent the transmission of germs. The most common ways of collecting a cervical mucus sample are: * Inserting your finger into your vagina and collecting some mucus. * Using toilet paper and wiping the entrance of your vagina and analyzing the mucus collected that way. * The most accurate way to collect your cervical mucus is to insert your finger into your vagina and circle your finger around your cervix or as close as you can to the cervix. This will allow you to actually collect the cervical mucus instead of just it's wetness. Monitoring the changes in cervical mucus is the only method that will not require looking back to the past few cycles for analysis, and also provide reliable results that you can trust when trying to conceive. You can do this yourself by getting a sample of your cervical secretions and stretch it between 2 of your fingers (the thumb and index finger) to test for the consistency. Examining the changes in your cervical mucus can help you pinpoint your time of ovulation and increase your chances of pregnancy.

I recently just got off birth control its been about 8 days and I have noticed I have had a lot more discharge than normal Its white yellowish cloudy color and creamy is this normal?

Yes, it's very normal. One of the ways hormonal birth control prevents pregnancy is to make the cervical mucus thicker so it's harder for sperm to get through. Once you stop hormonal birth control, you will begin to see a normal cycle of cervical mucus again, which will change throughout your menstrual cycle. If the discharge has no odor and no itching, there is no need for concern.

How does Apri birth control work?

Ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel contains a combination of female hormones that prevent ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary). This medication also causes changes in your cervical mucus and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus.
