    Default TMI. I passed a "Thing" vaginally, no idea what to think.

    Sorry I had no idea what to put as the title, this is going to sound rather strange...
    I went to the toilet (my period ended last night)
    I was doing a wee and felt a sensation like no other, and then herd a plonk.
    Looked into the toilet and at first I thought it was my Mirena falling out, had it fitted during a lap 6 weeks ago for endo.
    So I fished it out of the toilet, sorry gross I know, and it wasn't the mirena but it was a large clot, about 5cm long, 3cm wide, it's very tough and thick, feels very rubbery or meaty, it has little streaks of blood in it but mostly it's a "Skin" color.
    I put it into a container as I have a follow up app with my gyanecoloigist on Friday, do I take it with me? Or is that rater gross?

    I felt no pain when it passed, no pain before or after either it kind just came out...
    My periods have been considerbily lighter after the lap and having the mirena fitted, I use to pass golf ball sized clots that were bright red and very soft, I didn't have that for this period, I just had light bleeding, I have stage 3 endo so this has been great for me, but over the years I have never encounted a clot like this, the color and texrure is what has stumped me more.

    I did check the mirena string after and felt them in place.

    I'm sorry this is such a gross question.
    I'm just wondering if that has ever happened to anyone else?
    I'm starting to panic a little..

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes this happened to me. I am on high dose progesterone to control bleeding too. I have a fibroid which they are trying to shrink. But yeah I passed something about the size of a 10c coin. It was hard, skin colour and how you described. I mentioned it to my specialist and I was just given a strange look as if I was making it up. Personally I think mine was a piece of fibroid breaking away but I don't know. I think if its not too icky take out with you and pull it out if they ask. Its what I should have done then maybe they would have believed me.

    Definitely take it with you! I am sure they are desensitised to icky things, and if not, oh well that's why they get the big bucks 😉
    If you don't they will just be trying to imagine what you're describing and may not do so accurately.

    Good luck!

    No idea what it might be, but defiantly take it with you!

    They may send it off to pathology if they arn't sure what it is.

    Take it with you. If you feel weird about it, at least take photos on your phone. If its in your bag you have the option at least!

    Thank you for your replies.
    I had a few urine sample bottles laying around so I popped it in there.
    I showed hubby (who is very immune to seeing many of my clots in the past) and he was just a stumped as I was.. He explained it to look like a large clump of meaty flesh, which sounds better than my description above lol.
    It now has a slight blue color to it.. I have no idea what on earth it could be so I will take it with me, I'll try and explain it to them first and if they have a hard time understanding me ill show them.
    I will be sure to keep you updated on what it is, I'm either thinking its some of my uterine lining, or some "Left overs" after the lap.
    Either way it's concerning me so I will most definitely be bringing it up with my specialist.

    Happened to me when I came off the pill and it was just endometrial tissue shedding as the uterine layer broke down.

    Was the exact same description as yours. Rubbery, skin/clear color with blood streaks through it about half the size of my palm. Hurt like hell coming out and I was more concerned about the fact that the pain caused me to black out....

    I called the nurse at my gp and she said it was endometrial tissue and nothing to worry about.

    Edit: saw you have an appt with your gynae, chuck the container in the fridge fr the next few days (so it doesn't go gross) and take it along. But I wouldn't be too concerned about it.

    Default TMI. I passed a "Thing" vaginally, no idea what to think.

    I thought I would give an update.
    It was part of my uterine lining, that has eased my mind a lot! So glad I kept it, even though it was kinda gross

    Thank you all for your replies
