I started the Nuvaring this past month, removed it on Thursday and my withdrawal bleed began Saturday evening. However today I had the absolute oddest experience with the discharge.
It started this morning with mild cramping that progressed to severe, can't function cramping by the afternoon, which for me is normal enough as I'm prone to severe cramping. However what was really bizarre was that when I went to the bathroom (while I was experiencing severe cramping) I removed my tampon and a piece of white tissue about 4 or 5cm in length that I can only describe as similar to raw chicken skin existed my vagina. I've never experienced this before and my cramps began to die down after I'd expelled this tissue and I was wondering if you knew what this might have been. Is it something I should talk to the doctor about and might be related to the NuvaRing?

I don't see any reason not to just call in and check about it. However, changes in discharge, and sometimes truly funky discharges, are one common side effect of the ring.
