Dear BeingGirl Experts,
When I have my period, as well as blood, a strange sort of material appears. It looks like some kind of body tissue, but I'm not sure. Can you tell me what it is? Is this normal?
What you describe is normal. Your menstrual blood is not pure liquid. The clots you see are most likely larger pieces of your uterine lining, the endometrium, which is breaking down and leaving your body. Menstrual fluid is the combination of blood (which is liquidy) and tissue (which is more solid, or "clumpy") from the lining of the uterine wall. Sometimes your period looks like just like blood, and sometimes it is mixed with clots and tissue.
Hope this is helpful
