So as the title says, during intercourse with my gf, I noticed this abundant white mucus that stuck to everything and dried into flaky powder, very unlike my ejaculate.

I first noticed this when I went in without a condom (Bad decision if I want to stay baby free I know). I hadn't ejaculated till later when I had a condom on and my gf assures me the mucus had come from her.

Is it just Cervical mucus from pre/post-ovulation? Or should I worry that it's ejaculate?

HI ParanoidConfused,

What you're describing does sound like cervical mucus. Cervical mucus doesn't just appear around ovulation time. The type of mucus you're describing sounds like what a lot of people experience shortly before their period.
Does this help?

And yes, if you want to be sure that the risk of your girlfriend getting pregnant is as low as possible, you'll want to use condoms for all genital contact.

Yes I realize mucus is present at all points during the cycle and its consistency, color and presence all differ during different points in the cycle.

Thank you very much for the advice and reassurance. I'll be sure to use condoms more effectively now.

Since it's semi related I just want to ask this. Today my gf had an increase in mucus discharge and her period is due sometime next week or the week after. The mucus was enough to wet her underwear. She says it's normal for her before her periods but I'm just asking to make sure.

If she says it's normal for her, I'd trust that - she's the one who knows her body best. [Smile]

Alright, thank you very much. I tend to get overly paranoid about every little thing.

You're very welcome. If you think it would help, we have an excellent article about this very subject right here: Honorably Discharged: A Guide to Vaginal Secretions
