Effects of medications on mucus The fertility charts of women using fertility awareness based methods (FABMs) is a wonderful tool for seeing changes in life. Mucus quantity and quality, as well as days of mucus, can be seen to diminish with age, stress, weight loss, and strenuous exercise regimens. Dry cycles, or those with very limited mucus, can make it challenging to find optimal timing for days of fertility, and for lab testing or tracking when to start progesterone or other hormonal supplementation.
