Characteristics of the sexual secretion of the woman is a clear indicator of her health. Allocation during sex — a phenomenon that is programmed by nature. This process is quite complex. To understand where the norm, and where the pathology, it is necessary to have some knowledge. In some cases, it should be wary and seek medical advice, and sometimes the allocation report that health is all right.
Characteristics of secretions when excited
Sex is often the vagina is moistened. And the more enhanced attraction to sexual partners, the more intense is allocated grease. This is a clear mucus that has no smell.
As a rule, women receive about 5 ml lubricant per day. With the increase of excitation begins a secret is generated more intensively. This is achieved through the rush of blood to the vaginal walls and stimulation of sexual glands. Allocation during sex are poor or rich. Usually most of the grease is secreted in the moment of peak pleasure.
Such a secret simultaneously performs several important functions, it allows:
- to make sex more comfortable, to facilitate the introduction and the slide;
- to minimize the ingress of microorganisms, forming a protection from microbes and infections.
Lubrication also helps to create a suitable environment for sperm during the fertile period. This increases the chances of conception.
Women often notice themselves during sex a white discharge thick in consistency, similar to cream. Forums dedicated to medical topics, usually nobody can give a clear explanation of this phenomenon. Many recommend to go to a clinic and be tested for infection. But experienced doctors claim that rich white discharge during intercourse should not scare.
If the secret has homogeneous texture, is odorless and is not accompanied by itching or burning, there is no reason to sound the alarm. Gynecologists explain that this mucus is produced in certain days of the menstrual cycle. Hormonal changes all the time, estrogen becomes something more, some less. Such substances, which are responsible for the character of eye-catching mucus.
Lubrication is produced by not only the vagina but also the uterus, such a secret is called cervical fluid. With the help of her sperm into the egg. In other words, it's a repository for seed that allows it to survive in the acidic environment characteristic of the vagina.
The phase of the menstrual cycle
The nature of mucus, which is secreted from the vagina, depends on what kind of phase was broken. At the beginning of the cycle a little secret, it is transparent and you'll be watery consistency. During this period, the mucus is a barrier that is formed in the cervical canal. This tube holds pathogens, not allowing them to get into the uterus.
With the approach of ovulation, the level of the hormone increases that has an effect on the body, including on the reproductive system. At this time, the copious sex is common. Vaginal mucus becomes viscous and becomes alkaline. Grease, gets the smell of egg white, its color — white or cream.
If ovulation occurs, vaginal secretions secreted in smaller amounts. On features of the genital mucus can understand what the current stage of fertility, and can conceive a child. Wanting to understand what time is most good for fertilization, it is necessary to pay attention to the character of the vaginal mucus:
- Poor selection usually occur before menstruation and after. Dryness in the vagina suggests that fertilization is impossible.
- Sticky liquid, quickly dried on his fingers, evidence that the sperm a little chance to survive.
- Like a cream mucus indicates the approach of ovulation. At this time, the probability of getting pregnant increases.
- Stringy discharge is very white and of color, reminiscent of a protein indicate a high probability of conception.
After ovulation estrogen is reduced, resulting in cervical fluid loses its ability to save seed. The nature of the lubricant can be affected by other factors:
- a violation of hormonal background;
- frequent stress;
- infectious disease;
- gynecological diseases;
- diseases of the feet.
If the grease is released during intimacy in a large amount, it does not mean that health problems. To determine the volume of mucus and the probability of conception, we need to introduce two fingers deeply into the vagina, get them and evaluate the fluid. Vaginal method may prove informative only in the absence of gynecological pathologies.
Often strong selection for sex indicate bacterial vaginosis. They can be yellow, green or dirty-white tint. Liquid emits a smell of rotten fish. Sex may be concerned about itching and burning.
White mucus like cottage cheese in consistency with the smell of yogurt is often a symptom of thrush (candidiasis). Foul-smelling discharge during intercourse may indicate the presence of such venereal diseases as syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia.
If after sex the woman observed a lot of grease, such secretion may be due to the mixture of secretions of the vagina and male sperm. Often, such a mixture is distinguished by yellowish tint and emits a smell of egg whites. Typically, the fluid does not carry any discomfort.
Heavy discharge during intimacy can be associated with female hypersensitivity. Then the phenomenon is not due to pathology. A small amount of lubricant during intercourse may indicate changes in acid-base balance or disturbed microflora. Sometimes no lubrication at all, the most common reason for this dryness is hormonal failure.
To strong selection not tortured, you should follow simple rules of intimate hygiene. It is important to regularly take a shower, applying to cleanse the genitalia special formulations. These can be purchased at any pharmacy, they can maintain the normal microflora and reduce the risk of thrush.
Thus, during the intimacy of vaginal mucus because of the sex glands. In the absence of abnormalities of the white liquid may indicate the approach of ovulation period. You need to pay attention to the nature of secretion and change in its colour, odor and texture at different times.
If worried about itching or burning, it is best to visit a doctor and undergo the necessary tests. This will reveal the real cause discomfort and solve the problem.
