Unidentified Clear Liquid in Cup

Thanks to my constant praise of my DivaCup, one of my friends recently purchased one and started using it. Yay! :-) She's still getting used to it, but is really happy overall. She doesn't have a computer, so she asks me cup-related questions and I do all the legwork to find answers for her. I couldn't find anything about this in the memories, so I hope it hasn't been posted before.

My friend says there is often a clear liquid in her cup on top of the blood when she takes it out. I asked her if she thinks it's plasma. She's not sure. It's just a layer of clear liquid sitting atop the dense menstrual blood, like some sort of discharge parfait (my words, not hers). That's really all the details I have. I haven't seen it myself, so I'm really going to be useless as far as follow-up questions are concerned.

I'm just curious if anyone else has experienced this and, if so, what they think it is. She plans on bringing it up at her gyno on her next visit. She is concerned it could be some sort of infection, though she has no other signs of infection, such as smell, itching, or strange discharge during non-menstrual times of the month.

Any ideas?

(Note: I couldn't find any tags that seemed appropriate, so I just marked this with miscellaneous.)
