Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Now from what you are describing it is likely that the specks of blood that you have can be either mucus covered with blood which can float on water or even diluted blood or even a light blood clot which is floating on water. The fact that it is floating on water does not indicate that you have a disease of any sort however the presence of fatigue, headaches, nausea can be indicative of an underlying problem. The headaches, nausea and fatigue can indicate that you have a low hemoglobin or have anemia which can occur if you have been having relatively heavy periods over the past few months or it can be present because of other reasons as well. this can be diagnosed on the basis if a simple CBC test.

Another cause of these symptoms can be a thyroid disorder, an underactive thyroid can lead to this problem commonly and can be diagnosed wiyth the help of a simple thyroid function test.

In short the floating specks of blood are less likely to be indicative of a disease process however if you havea vaginal discharge, abdominal pain etc then you can be investigated for another underlying infection in the reproductive tract.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
