*tmi*what was this? and a decidual cast question. Allissa Specht 35 kids; Essexville, Michigan 5437 posts

First off, I noticed when I got out of the tub last night id passed what appeared to be a long mucousy string with four distinct pink spots on it? What was it? I've had cramping since I had my baby 13is weeks ago but no period yet.



Secondly, after my baby was born I passed large blood clots. Several were softball size. I went ti the doctor and they said I had a "decidual cast". Anybody have one of these? What exactly is it? And what do I have to worry about if anything?

*Watching* I hope someone answers you. I started having a discharge that looked like a mucus plug about 3 weeks ago. And not just a little, it looks and is coming out just like my plug did. So I called and got meds for a yeast infection bc that's what I thought it was...it has slowed way down but I notice some days I still have it.

That sounds like BV?

Bv and yeast are similar. Actually I had BV at the end of my pregnancy and it was pretty nasty. I kept having TONS of yellowish greenish whitish mucous constantly. To the point I had to keep on a pad. It didn't smell in the beginning but once I had him it began stinking.

I'm keeping an eye on it. I just took the second half of the yeast infection meds. So if it's still happening over the weekend i'm making an appointment on Monday. It seems to be going away, but then some days it seems like it's coming back!

That's how BV was for me. This I had once, it was stringy mucous whither four red dots in almost a perfect row! I've had spotting as well, but no period yet. Im not pregnant, I took a test today. Idk I think I just had a chemical pregnancy because I had two ppstitive tests last weekend

should you be starting a period soon? i'd wait a couple more days and test again just to be sure! It could have been a small cyst. sometimes they can cause a positive on a test, and then they bust open can cause bleeding. That's what my SIL's doc told her bc she kept having positives on her home pregnancy test but when she'd go get blood work they'd say neg. every time. so they did and U/s and found the cyst.
