  • Yeah it normally looks like snot, it may be tinged with brown, pink, or red blood. Also it can either come out in a lump or as increased vaginal discharge over the course of several days or even a bit of both.

  • I lost mine a few times and it would take about a week to lose it. It was like snot like everyone else said.
    The last time I lost it, it was a big glob of thick mucus with red blood. Sorry for the TMI.
