User :   Hello,
I am on my period for the second day and today it is weird because i have a white chucky tissue like discharge coming out of me. I noticed it while i was peeing and thought it was a blood clot but it wasn't. There was blood and this white chucnky substance that has no odor. I am sexually active but have not had sex in 5 weeks. It feels like its trying to push its way out of me like minor pressure nothing major.... Do you know what this means?
