In brief: Clot with mucous

Hard to say exactly.
It sounds like a small blood clot with mucous. Both mucous and clot can get stringy looking after it sits in the back of the vagina for awhile.

I took care of a patient with similar situation. It was a tampon - with the cardboard applicator... Patient almost developed into septic picture. Remove it - consider a thorough GYN exam to ensure it is all out and not anything else.
