NeedHelp, I thick sticky cervical mucus comes from your cervix, not your uterus.

After sex the sperm can wait for up to three days for the egg to be released at ovulation. If the egg gets fertilized within those three days, it takes another 8 to 10 days to implant. So even if your mucus is thick and sticky when you have sex, it can become wet and stretchy in those three days. Thick and sticky mucus is normally at the beginning or end of your fertile time.

Take care!

what if the emergency contraception is used? does the emergency contraception produce thick cervical mucus in the uterus to block the implantation of the egg? and if the pill is eaten before ovulation and the bleeding does not happen as expected within the next week (as many people have reported that they bleed after one week of taking the pill before ovulation) should the we be worrying?

NeedHelp, Only a pregnancy test can determine if you are pregnant. Emergency contraceptives will greatly reduce your chances of ending up pregnant. The sooner after the sex you took the pills, the better it will work. Bleeding or mucus can however not tell if the emergency contraceptives worked.
