This is my first "period" ( if it even is!) Without being on birth control… my period should be coming this week or next im pretty sure. I only took 5 pills this month and had stopped. That was a couple days after my last period. Now i have had small cramps. Like once and then noticed this snot like clear mucus discharge coming from me with a small amount of blood. In a couple wipes its gone. Yesturday night i had taken a preg. Test. It was negative. And to be sure i took another when i woke up and that was aswell negative? What could this even be? Are my hormones jusy messed up bc i didnt do my bc this month? Or?
When our discharge becomes stretchy, clear & looking like egg yolk, it is usually when we are ovulating. This gummy discharge protects sperm to allow fertilisation. I actually get cramps when I ovulate. That can happen.
You wouldn't usually get blood in this discharge, but I have found that when I've been trying coming off any hormonal contraception, or recently used the emergency contraceptive pill, my body gets a bit mixed up, & have had blood in the mucus, or even mucus with my period.
Chances are it's just your hormones settling back down, but if this happens more times, I would advise getting checked out by your GP, just to be sensible.
