On birth control, getting mucus with little brown blood. What does it mean?

I have been on the pill birth control for 6 years, I am 23 now and my periods on the pill have always been much lighter than before I started the pill. I have to take a pill with a higher amount of progesterone because I was having break through bleeding when I was first put on the pill. For the last year, give or take, my periods have been very heavy (soak a super plus tampon every 2-4 hours for at least 3 days) but the period its self has been a normal length, usually 6 days long. This month my period was very heavy for 5 days, normal for 4 days, then very light with brown blood these last two days, this morning was the 12th day for me to be on my period, when I wiped first thing this morning I had a lot of mucus mixed with a little brown blood and a small (pea to small blueberry) sized peice of grey matter that looked like skin tissue. My husband and I had been intimate last night. What could this mean?

Hi, You are on pills, there is no possibility of pregnancy, but rarely there could be pregnancy, so if you get HPT, even after expulsion you can find whether it is conception product, or not.
The brownish bleeding indicates anemia, or infection. I usually prescribe in such case hematinics, fluconazole, cifixime. so i advise you to consult a gynacologist for treatment. Thank you.
