what is spinnbarkeit?


according to elibrary:
spinnbarkeit /spin'brkt,shpin'-/, the clear, slippery, elastic consistency typical of cervical mucus during ovulation. It has the texture of an uncooked egg white, and it is a valuable sign of the most fertile period in a woman's menstrual cycle. Observation of spinnbarkeit is useful in natural methods of family planning, in the clinical evaluation of infertility, and in finding the best time for artificial insemination.




simply it is a clinical test performed on cervical mucus to evaluate the degree of estrogenization.
