Common Questions and Answers about Blood clots during period normal

period

While blood clots are a normal part of a heavier period, that size blood clots and that frequent passing of them is not normal nor is the length of your period. A period should only last up to 7 days, not longer. Your doctor will probably put you on birth control to regulate your periods, and that should make them lighter and a lot shorter (mine went from 7 days heavy with clots to 2-3 days medium flow and sometimes light).
I have blood clots since my period started,(23 years ago) and I always thought it is normal for every one, but once I was chatting with my friends and discovered that I am the only one who suffer this. I have a 7 days period with blood clots on each and every day, and severe blood clots on the second and third day of my period. Is this normal? and does this affect if I want to be pregnant.
When I was a teen I had a normal period. I had small blood clots. Nothing to be worried about though. Things changed slowly though and while in college my periods became worse. The blood clots became larger, which made my cramping worse. I never really cramped before so I always knew when a blood clot was coming. I saw the school doctor and was put on birth control pills. It sort of helped. I spotted more when I didn't have my period though. By then it was lasting 5-7 days.
About six days ago I started my period. So far everything went fine, until yesterday. I know blood clots are normal, I have them often during my period. This time it seems a little odd. The jelly like stuff are usually bigger than they normally are. About three to four inches in lenght and two to three inches in width ( a guess ). It is also accompanied by a LOT of blood. I have to change my pads every two hour for two days now. I seem to be bleeding too much ( ?
Blood clots are the uterus shedding which is normal during menstruation. Have you always had blood clots during your period? Do you have PCOS by any chance?
when you say big clots, how big? it is normal to pass clots during your period but a good rule of thumb is anything larger than a quarter you should inquire w. your dr. (although i have had a few whoppers during my period and was just like what the HE double toothpicks is that?) however, its not a constant thing w. me every month. i am sure your chances of conceiving have not passed you by. you're just 36 not 86! you should get a "once over" by your dr.
I know that clots are normal during your period but this time everytime I use the bathroom nothing but clots come out. I have never seen it like that. I have had my period since i was 11 and I had my son 3 years ago so i seen alot but not this. Anyone know of any casues why and do you think I should worry?
Well, often blood clots happen DURING your period (and if you're clotting, you're still bleeding, and you're still on your period) and that's what causes you to cramp. It's completely normal. Some people have cramps more frequently then others (or bigger clots), or some people vary with how badly they cramp.
NORMAL! Blood clots are normal during a period but shouldnt get any bigger than the size of a quarter - if they do, you need to see a doctor. Incidentally, it may take awhile for your periods to regulate so dont be surprised if you miss a few, alternate between light and heavy periods, and the clotting changes from period to period (i.e. sometimes you might not have any clots, other times you might have a lot).

i have had light bleeding and heavy; however, 2 days ago I passed a white blood clot with a normal clot. I am very afraid and want some advise. I am a virgin and have never been to a gynecologist because of being a virgin. I am also very afraid to go because I am a very modest person. I just need some advise or for someone, a maybe a doctor to tell me what that white clot was.
Small clots are usually normal during your period. But you want to make sure they are not too big. I had endometriosis and adenomyosis and I would have clots that were huge. A lot of them would be the size of a small apple! And it would feel like I was having a baby! and the clots would last for the full week or more. So as long as you are not having symptoms like I was, then I think you are fine.
I always have a fairly heavy period and blood clots during, but this month I'm having an extremely heavy period and literally had a blood clot the size of 2 50 cent pieces (which i know isn't normal), but could i have had a miscarriage (my period wasn't a day late) or have something seriously wrong that i should go see my Doc about?
