Yes, mucus discharge is among the common pregnancy symptoms.

While this is completely normal and a common complaint among pregnant women, there are times when she should be concerned about the changes. For example, if the woman notices that the discharge begins to smell differently or if it changes from a clear color to another color, this could be the sign of an infection.

In order to determine the type of infection as well as the treatment necessary, the woman should visit with her doctor. One of the most common infections that a woman will experience while she is pregnant is a yeast infection. If this is the case, it is a possibility that your doctor will allow you to treat yourself at home using over the counter medications.

However, there are also other types of infections that a woman should be concerned about. For this reason, determining the type of infection that is present is the best option for proper treatment. After you determine the type of infection that you have, you can discuss your options with your doctor.
