Welcome to Health Care Magic.

The clumpy lump of mucus in urine you are referring to might be of either urinary or genital in origin.

Firstly coming to urinary causes. It could be due to the shedding of bladder epithelium ( Likely possibility in your case)or due to proteins and fat in urine ( Unlikely in your case as these would definitely result in various symptoms)

Coming to Genital conditions, it could be due to normal cervical secretions ( Likely possibility in your case)or glandular secretions or any genital infection( unlikely cause in your case they they are often foul smelling. You have not mentioned anything about fever or pain abdomen or vulval itching. I guess you dint have any such symptoms. If my guess is right it might not be due to infection.

Finally i would favor the possibility of bladder epithelium and normal cervical secretions being the most common possibilities in your case.

But anyways to rule out other possibilities a complete urine examination must b done

wish you good health

Take care

Hi Christina.

It appears you may be having a urinary tract infection. You will need to get your urine tested if possible. Also if you experience vaginal itching or discharge, kindly get a Gynecologist's consult as well.

Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink 2-3 litres of water a day for 5 days. This will take care of the infection. Also you may need antibiotic, so kindly consult your Gynecologist or Urologist to give the right antibiotic after testing urine to find out which organism is causing the infection.

Wishing good health.
