Age 34 – TTC and Pregnancy

These photos showcase the cervix of a 34 year old woman during her third month of trying to conceive using a known sperm donor.  Her cycles are typically 35-38 days long.  She has never been pregnant before, nor has she had any STDs.  She has never used any form of birth control. 

Day 21

This photo was taken on day 21 of her cycle, the day after her first positive OPK (Ovulation Predictor Kit).  You can clearly see the fertile eggwhite fluid covering her cervix.  This is the second day in a row that they inseminated, though this photo was taken before the insemination on Day 21.

Day 22


Day 24


6 weeks pregnant

This woman did indeed conceive during this cycle and this is a photo of her cervix at 6 weeks pregnant.  Congratulations!  Though a little blurry, you can see some white discharge, or leukorrhea, emerging from the cervix.  This is normal and common due to a rise in estrogen during pregnancy.  At 8 days after ovulation and insemination, she says her cervix felt very soft.


Since week 9, she has had increased vaginal discharge that is almost an orange color at times, which can be normal.  She has also had morning sickness since week 7 but it seems to be lessening near her 10th week.
