    Slimy, Mucous like period?
    foreveryoung2013 posted:
    I think this is my period, it's been hard to tell but whatever it is it's been going on for a month now. It all started 3/10/13. I used the restroom to only see a huge blood clot (golf ball size) come out. I actually felt it come out. Ever since I have been bleeding in the AM and brown discharge in the PM. About 2 days ago I started my period (I think) 3 days early. Now all I am discharging is this slimy blood. Any ideas what this could be. It all started after my ER visit due to gallstone attacks. I don't think this has anything to do with it though.

    It would be unlikely that a discharge lasting this long would be your menstrual period. This sounds like an infection. It would be good to have it looked into by a Gynecologist.
