On 3/23/08 I had a red blotch in my underwear for 1 day. No cramping. On 4/04/08 I was moving furniture in the kitchen and started cramping as soon as I stop moving the furniture the cramps stop.Now today when I went to void I saw a brownish tissue like mass in the toilet. no cramping. Yesterday I did do exercise routine. I am not on any BC due to liver surgery. I just want to know what could be going on with my body.

Answer:

Your irregular bleeding is likely due to the failure to ovulate (chronic anovulation-search for previous questions). There are many causes of this, but they can all be ruled out by a detailed history and physical. This could also be related to any chronic liver disease you are suffering from.
