Passing white tissue/clot during period
An_193431 posted:
Two months ago I passed a very large piece of tissue during a light period and went to my OBGYN, they checked me out said all was well but had no answers as to why. I had a very heavy period last month and agian this month with the large tissue and very little flow....what could be causing this?
