I had something that looked like a chicken vein come out in

Customer Question

I had something that looked like a chicken vein come out in the discharge of my vagina today along with what I normally see at about the time of ovulation which I think is the unfertilized ova, but what could the vein have been?!!! I recently had an early period of about 4 days and then light flow/spotting for 17 more days. It finally stopped a week ago from yesterday but then this weird thing today...
JA: How long have you been dealing with the issue? Are you in any pain?
Customer: No pain, this was actually just prior to my GYN appointment, but they didn't really answer my question what it was, just said stuff looks fine except swollen uterus so we're doing an ultrasound and some more tests.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Nope...

most like that discharge was a mucus plug or an old blood clot coming out of your uterus.

mucus plugs often are discharged out of your vagina at times of ovulation.
