Passing Tissue During Pregnancy

Topic Overview

It may be hard to tell if you have passed tissue, because when you pass tissue you may also pass large blood clots. Tissue may appear gray or pink.

Passing tissue may be a sign of miscarriage. If you pass tissue or have moderate bleeding any time during pregnancy, call your doctor immediately.

Note:

If possible, collect the tissue and bring it with you when you see your doctor.
