endometrium polyp blood clot during period has white tissue
hi. I had an ultrasound done 2months ago that showed a thick endometrium - 18mm. They suggested it could be a polyp. I was told to redo the test after period. It still showed thick but they didnt tell me the size. They said it was no cause for concern but I should tell them if I get unusual pain or heavy bleeding.
I usually pass one or two blood clots on the 4th day of my period.I did this time, and a fairly long clot. It was red and the sides had white tissue. What could this mean? Is it possible to shed polyps? Is there a possibility that is what happened?
Also my periods have gotten a little bit lighter over the past few years. I am 30. I had a benign ovarian tumor removed 5yrs ago and all my tests have come back normal after that.
