i got my period last week and it was brown the whole time and then immediately after it ended i've had clear like jelly mucus for about 3 days now. everywhere i search online says you could get the mucus 3-5 days after the period not usually directly following it. I did some more searching and a few pregnancy comments came up. i'm just wondering if someone! anyone! knows why or what this is?

Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

If the bleeding during the periods was normal in flow and duration then possibility of pregnancy does not arise.Mucus like discharge can be due to various reasons as ovulation symptom,hormonal fluctuation,infection,stress,excitement etc.

Observe for development of other symptoms as foul smelling discharge, itching, pain, rashes, burning etc which could be indicative of any infectious cause.
If there is any unusual symptom consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation.Follow general hygienic measures.

Take care!
