Sometimes when you get your period, there can be little slimy bits that come out too, like a thickened bloody mucus. It is normal- remember that you're shedding the blood lining of your uterus!


ANSWER #13 of 18

It's not uncommon but it can be uncomfortable.

It's not a huge deal but you probably should talk to the doc about it. It can be a symptom of something larger like endometriosis. Just ask the doc about it but you don't need to go to the ER over it.

My period started almost a month ago and it hasn't stopped. In the last week the flow has slowed down I guess but still I just want it to stop. Any suggestions? I started taking vitamin E today because I heard it regulates your period but I thought maybe you guys have a better suggestion. Thanks.
