I am on continuous birth control (patch) and I have been on it for seven weeks now. I know break through bleeding and spotting is normal for up to six months but I have been having blood clots. They are thin, skin like, and blood red and white. Is the white part normal? I mean is it mucus or my vaginal lining? Thanks!

the clots are mucus and uterine tissue. that's normal. white clots are mostly mucus.
