    Fleshy clots during period?
    jillio26 posted:
    I started my period a couple days ago, even though I'm on birth control and shouldn't be having a period. It got really heavy last night and this morning there was a big piece of flesh that had come out. It wasn't like a normal clot, it was more solid, and was about the size of say a small piece of bacon. Should I be worried?
    ShanellRobo responded:
    That was most likely your uterus shedding its endometrium. I wouldn't be worried unless I was in a great deal of pain.
    ShanellRobo responded:
    Pardon me, endometrium layer, not the whole thing.
    jillio26 responded:
    Thanks for your reply. I actually went to the doctor and brought the piece in, and they sent it into the lab and it ended up being from a miscarriage I had. I had no idea I had even gotten pregnant!
    ShanellRobo responded:
    :frown: Oh I'm so sorry to here that. I hope all is well
    luvnmommie2 responded:
    Oh yes you should. That is not normal. I hope you have gone to the doc.
