    Default How long to regenerate mucous plug?

    As the title asks, does anyone know how long it takes for the mucous plug to regenerate, if you lose it?

    I'm 30 weeks tomorrow, and last week I had to have a colposcopy to rule out cervical cancer. (I don't, yay!) Anyway, the procedure disturbs the cervix, and as a result, my cervix freaked out a bit and I lost so much mucous, it had to be most of, if not all of my mucous plug, some of which was bloody.

    So, back to the question, how long to regenerate it? And in the mean time, can Dh and I dtd? And can I go swimming? Is there an infection risk? I'm also scared to dtd in case we dislodge the plug again and I go into labour this time.

    I not sure exactly but I do know that your body makes one every cycle after ovulation and you loose it during your period so I would guess not that long?

    Hi there. This is a little different to ur experience but I lost part of mine when I had prem labour at 29 weeks with ds (had a hind water leak). I'm not sure how long it takes to regenerate but I would avoid dtd and swimming in pools or baths just to be on the safe side. If not sure have a chat to ur on.

    Thanks Thermolicious and Sehan!

    I think I will avoid dtd, (dh will be devastated) and I stayed out of the water all weekend, as I'm just not sure it's safe.

    Perhaps I will call them tomorrow morning, just to ask if I'm being too cautious. In hindsight, I really should have asked while I was at my appointment, but I didn't actually realise this would happen.

    Thanks again,

    But if anyone else does happen to know how long the plug takes to come back, I'd still really like to know!
