Gynecology

Discharge

04/16/2009

Question:

I am 44 years old and in good health. My periods are very regular (every 30 days)and last 4-6 days with normal flow. However, on the last day or two of my last two periods the discharge looks like shavings or shreddings. I have no pain or discomfort. Thank You.

Answer:

You should have this looked at during this part of your cycle. Since I am unsure what you mean by shavings or shreddings, I can't venture a guess.
