What Causes Pain During Intercourse?
For the past week I felt some pain when having sex and today I got my cycle. When i went to the bathroom I saw two thick meaty looking tissue. This had never happened fo me so I was just wondering if this is normal.
Possible endometrial tissue or early miscarriage
Thank you for trusting HealthcareMagic for your health concern
There are two possibilities for the meaty tissue that noticed along with bleeding.
1. The tissue could be blood clot mixes with slogged endometrial tissue. During menstrual bleeding decreased progesterone and effect of prostaglandins will slough off the old endometrial tissue. And the pain you noticed could be premenstrual pain.
2.Since you have been sexually active, there is possibility of conception. The bleeding you developed could have been very early miscarriage and the meaty tissue could be the products of conception. And the pain you noticed could be due to impending miscarriage.
The tissue can be send for pathologic evaluation to see if it was an embryo. But it is not necessary.
If the pain or bleeding do not subside or worsens please be advised to follow up with your gynecologist.
You can take Tylenol or Advil for pain.
