    Strange Spotting, Or Clotting? HELP

    I don't know if this is the best place to post this, but if you have any info I'd like to know some opinions

    My fiance just got back from Afghanistan and we obviously have been having a lot of sex. We have been going out a lot too so I have been forgetting to take my birth control until 9-10 at night. Before he came home I was taking it around 5.
    Ive switched to 9 at night for about 2 weeks, and a few days ago I started spotting. I figure its because of this little mess up in my BC schedule (i take seasonique and Im half way through the entire pack)
    This morning when i went to the bathroom I have this think clump from my spotting. Ive never have anything like it before. It was a think patch that almost looked like red skin. Very think, not very mucus-y at all. The texture was almost like wet gum.
    Very strange to me. Should I be concerned at all?
