Thank you for posting your query.

Following are possible explanation for the fleshy mass you have passed:

1) Most likely it is an organized clot (old blood clot and shed endometrial tissue covered with fresh clot). Since this could be shed endometrial tissue with sticky blood clot, it may look like fleshy substance to you (meat like).

As you have no other health problems, I feel that is nothing by a blood clot. Hence don’t worry about it

2) However if you were suspecting pregnancy or had missed your periods for a while (since you have not mentioned about it), it could be an abortion.

3) Infection is another possibility. But as it was not smelly or infected appearance, I don’t think it is infected mass.

Since you do not complain of any other associated symptoms and it has happened only once, it’s most likely to be clot with endometrial tissue. Hence please don’t worry about it.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you have any more queries. Do accept the answer if you do not have any other queries.
