I’m currently on my period and twice today I have had a thick fatty looking substance come out when I have been to the bathroom, it’s not like a regular period clot

Doctor's Assistant: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?

I have pain now, and usually regular. I was taking the pill but I started to get my period whilst taking that so I stopped taking it all together yesterday

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have a family history of endometriosis

Thank you for your patience.

The fatty looking substance can be one of two things:

- It could be the uterine lining (endmetrium) which has come out in a single piece. Normally, it comes out in bits and pieces and mixed with blood and blood clots and you may not notice it.

- It could be a vaginal discharge. Yeast infection can cause formation of chunks of vaginal discharge which is thick, fatty looking and similar to yogurt .

In either case, it is normal.

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.
