Brief Answer:
other symptoms matter

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the query.

While small amount of mucus is safe and normal to have it in the stool, how large is the amount of mucus, whether it is accompanied by fever, abdominal pain or blood is important. If there is any other symptoms accompanied by mucus it should be a disorder. How many times did you pass mucus alone is another question?
Bloating and mucus indicates common infections initially. It needs to be tested with blood work and stool microscopy. Giardiasis, amoebiasis and other parasititic infections play a cause.
Check with your doctor before you really need to panic or not.

Brief Answer:
Menstrual cycle can be followed after mucus from vagina

Detailed Answer:
If it had abdominal pain, clear mucus from the vagina and then followed by menstrual period it is normal. If it is stool it needs an examination.

Hope this answers. If you do not have any more questions please close and rate.
