Had a thick tissue discharge during third day of period. Also experienced sharp pain. What does this mean?

Endometrium: What actually happens during a menstrual period is that the inner lining of the uterus that has been built up during the first half of the cycle in preparation for the implantation of a fertilized egg--now that there is no pregnancy--is being discharged from the uterus, hence the tissue clots. The sharp pain reflects the work of the uterus to discharge the tissue. ...Read more

I have tough, membraneous, tissue- like discharge during period. What is it? I am on the pill but started my pack a week late this month.

Uterine lining: Each month, the lining of your uterus which is made up of 'mebraneous material" grows in response to hormonal stimulation preparing for possible implantation/pregnancy. If no pregnancy occurs, this lining is shedded (because of drop in hormones (estrogen, progesterone) at end of cycle resulting in menstrual flow and thus you see the "membraneous tissue." hope that makes sense.

Tissue like membranous discharge during period. This never happened before. I took an emergency contraceptive pill 5-6 days back. Is this discharge ok?

Tissue like membranous discharge during period. This never happened before. I took an emergency contraceptive pill 5-6 days back. Is this discharge ok?

Probably normal: The menses that women have is the shedding of the uterine lining. Sometimes there are "tissue-like" parts that can be expelled, especially if EC is taken. I don't think you need to worry. Take a pregnancy test in 2-3 weeks. ...Read more
