Cervical Mucus

A sticky fluid covering the cervix. It is made inside the  passage that starts from  outside of the cervix into the inside of the uterine cavity (endocervical canal). It changes in consistency throughout a woman’s menstrual cycle. During ovulation, the cervical mucus becomes more watery and stringy so sperm can pass through more easily.
