    Lately, when I urinate, I am seeing a thin white/clear tissue/clot/film in the toilet. It isnt very much, maybe like 3 or 4 pieces (when im menstruating, its dark red). It almost looks like a blood clot when I'm menstruating, but when I am not, it looks the same except there is no color. I am experiencing no pain, no urination problems and I am not pregnant. Just slightly worried about what it is. Any ideas? READ MORE

    Hello

     

    How often is this happening when you urinate?  Please know that I am not a doctor or a gynecologist but if this were me, I would go the doctor to get this symptom checked out.

     

    Passing tissue while urinating appears to be a symptom of renal pappilary necrosis but there are a lot of other symptoms to this condition as well.

     

    Does it look more like mucus?  Sometimes this can be caused by a urinary tract infection. 

     

    The only way to know what could be causing this symptom is to see your doctor.  Please let us know what your doctor says.

     

    Thank you for your question.
