Mucus is normal with even extremely mild inflammation....it can also mean that the digestive tract is more active as well, especially during stressful events.
Expect some kind of change during your cycle after ovulation.
I suggest you start tapering the steroid foam now rather than dropping....and are you going off the oral budesonide?
My experience....better to know and check. But you're micromanaging in the way that a slight change sets you emotionally back to square one. See the reality that you're healing and heading in THAT direction.....still probably have extremely mild inflammation (reason for the mucus)....its not all or nothing.
What you are learning in this short time....took me 3 years.
All sounds good!
Keep us updated on how you do when off the steroid.
