Is it normal to pass large pieces of tissue during your period? One piece was about an inch long, light pink, another was larger

Is it normal to pass large pieces of tissue during your period? One piece was about an inch long, light pink, another was larger

Assume not normal: If you have never experienced this before, then you should assume that there might be something going on to explain this finding. First, you really need to check a pregnancy test. If this is negative, then you should contact your ob/gyn who will likely schedule an ultrasound to make sure your uterus looks normal. Old blood can sometimes look like "tissue". Good luck! ...Read more

There is brown colored mucus tissue before period. Is this pregnancy?

There is brown colored mucus tissue before period. Is this pregnancy?

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. Sounds like this is just a light period. ...Read more

It depends on the: Rest of your recent menstruation history. If you have had irregular bleeding in the past or recently stopped hormone or contraception pills, or implants, then that would explain why your periods are changing. If you have had nothing to alter your periods, then other things like nutrition, stress, weight change, exercise, weather, mood can also play a role. I would wait a week to see change. ...Read more

I took plan b two days after period. 4 days before period, I'm bleeding quite a bit but no tissue just blood. Is this my period??

Probably not, but...: Plan B can alter the menstrual period for the cycle in which Plan B was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex because Plan B works most of the time, but not all the time. Be sure to get a "Plan A" (reliable, main method of birth control) so not to need Plan B again. ...Read more

You mentioned tissue, possibly you're worried that you had a miscarriage? It's possible, but you'll never know. Sometimes coagulated blood looks like tissue too. If you're worried about your regular cycle, see a doctor. ...Read more
