Question: Fleshy looking blood clot

 88crispy - Sat Mar 06, 2010 9:30 pm

I just passed a fleshy looking blood clot. Flesh like on the outside, feels like a rare steak in toughness, bloody on the inside. It appears to have a hole in it and the tissue I set it on is lightly soaked with blood. The clot is larger than a half dollar. I know I was not pregnant because I have not had sex since April 2009, am on birth control and have had a period every month since then. I have one three year old daughter if that information will help you.

User avatar Hello,
Menstrual flow is made up of various types of tissue, including blood as the uterus cleans itself naturally when pregnancy does not occur. This would be normal and clotting just means that the blood pooled for a while before it was eliminated from the body. Don't worry about this.

Best wishes.
