slimy stuff

For about 2 weeks every morning after I brush my teeth after about 20minutes I start to feel this stringy slimy stuff that I am able to pull out. It only seems to come after I brush and is only there for a while. It is not there all day and it doesnot return after I get it out. Would you please explain what this could be and how to get rid of it.
Thanks

Hi Karen,

Have you changed any of the products you're using?

I ask because I spotted this response from another member: check it out !

I hope it helps.

Hi Karen,

If the other member's response that I linked wasn't helpful to you, the best thing you could do is see your medical provider for a direct examination and to start exploring what this is and to get - if necessary - treatment.
