Doctor :   Hi,
User :   I am currently on a deployment and I really don't have that much access to doctors
Doctor :   Do you have abdominal cramps now ?
User :   no
User :   no pain no burning no white stuff
Doctor :   ok , do not worry it could be trapped in menstrual bleeding
User :   trapped??
Doctor :   it will be self limiting , if it goes for more than 7 days then you may have to visit a gynecologist
Doctor :   yes, sometimes the decidua may not have shredded out completely
User :   so its ok to have this kind of discharge??
Doctor :   thats after a week or two gets released as new glands will be growing in the endometrium
Doctor :   yes,
Doctor :   its ok
User :   what is a decidua
User :   sorry for all the questions
Doctor :   its ok,
Doctor :   decidua is the layers of the endometrium ( inner lining of the uterus ) which is shed every month in the menstrual bleed
User :   so is it normal to have this every month and cramp really bad during the cycle
Doctor :   not every month , but occasionally its ok
Doctor :   and yes, the cram[p during the cycle in some will be more due to the hormonal imbalance
