I have been trying to conceive for almost two years. I have never taken birth control before. I don't get my period regularly, however there is months that I do. I went to mexico this year and had a lady check my uterus ( culture believe) and according to her it was out of place. I believe her because I did feel something move in there! She also gave me a herb that would help me conceive. This was on Jan 27th and I started taking the herb on Jan 30th untill Feb 18th. I did start my period on Jan28th and lasted about three days. On about Feb. 12th I started bleeding very heavy and that lasted 2 weeks ending on Feb.26th. Today March 4th I wake up feeling wet i went to the bathroom and had a slimy RED discharged with a clot. I put a pad thinking that i was probably my period. I felt wet thru the day but only had brown on pad, for a couple days after that I had a slimy thick white discharge for about two days, and i tought I was ovulating but it has continued but know its watery like but cloudy. What could that be????

The average menstrual cycle lasts 28 days, but can vary between 24 and 35 days. Menstrual bleeding normally lasts between two and seven days, with the average being five days.

Pregnancy can occur, only when ejaculation occurs within the vagina, and when the woman is within this ovulatory phase of your cycle. ‎This period is from day 12 to day 16 of a 28 day menstrual cycle.

The regular menstrual cycle in a woman is regulated by secretion of hormones from the hypothalamus, pituitary gland and those from the ovary. Any defect in any of these three sites can change the cyclic changes that occur in the ovary and the uterus and hence influence the menstrual flow.

if you have significantly excessive bleeding, associated with clots, severe cramping, irregular cycles, frequent bleeding between periods, it could be a sign of menstrual disorders (dysfunctional uterine bleeding, fibroids) , hormonal disorders (PCOD, Thyroid disorders, etc) or other medical issues.

In such a case, it would be recommended that you consult your doctor or a OB-GYN for proper medical advice and help.

I hope this helps.
