Sometimes I notice a transparent smear on the tissue paper – how do I record this?
Sometimes cervical fluid can be so minimal that it appears as a transparent smear on the tissue paper. It’s texture will help you decide how to record it.
If the amount of fluid is so minimal that you can’t pick it up between your fingers, and it is sticky or tacky to the touch, this would be recorded as ‘Sticky’. However, if the fluid is slimy or slippery to the touch, can be picked up with your fingers or is accompanied by a slippery sensation when you wipe yourself, this would be recorded as ‘Eggwhite’.
