EXTREME tmi so if you are easily grossed out...don't read this lol

this is embarrassing but i'm freaking out....after a month of being on the pill today is the first day of my period. i took out my tampon tonight and on the end of it was a very thick substance. almost a worm like texture that was stretchy but held its shape. i touched it GAGGING with a qtip and the more it was touched the more it dried up but was just weird in texture!!! seriously when i first looked at it i thought it was a worm!!! wtf is this!!! please tell me its normal!

  • Let your doctor know. Do you have any other symptoms? It sounds like mucus. just make sure to get an appointment just in case its an infection.

  • Ewww. thats gross. It is a blood clot, most likely. Some woman get them more than others. They come in all weird shapes. Huh, touched it. LOL
