Common Questions and Answers about Heavy period large clots

period

For some reason its been 6 days and very heavy with varying sizes in the clots. I would think my period was about to end and then it'd get heavy again. Should I be worried?
They have been very heavy to and i used to never have clots well today i thought my period was over because the bleeding was gone since yesterday but to my surprise i sat down to use the restroom and blood poured out of me and i passed a clot the size of the palm of your hand! This same thing happend to me not last month but the month before i thought it stopped than i passed one the size of an egg, what is going on can anyone tell me a friend of mine says its premenepause?
Before I got on birth control, I had heavy periods with blood clots. Blood clots are a perfectly normal part of having a period. The lining of your uterus needs to be shed!
Past periods have been heavy and even sometimes painful but never with such large clots or unpredictable flow. There is very little cramping with this period, which is also unusual. Also, it is about 1 week early. Just concerned, or should I be? Is this just another step towards pre-menopause?
I HAVE BEEN BLEEDING HEAVY BLOOD CLOTS DURING MY PERIOD,THE BLOOD CLOTS ARE BIGGER THEN A QUARTER ANDG I THINK SOME WRONG WHAT SHOULD I DO PLEASE HELP ME
For the past year my monthly period has been very heavy passing lots of large blood clots. It had, for a couple of months slowed down with the clots, but this month is ridiculous. I'm now on my 12th day and still passing blood clots bigger than golf balls. There is no pain involved and i've never had any cramping, not younger nor at the age I am. I was thinking the clotting was the lining and i'd probably be period free before long.
Probably for the past year or so I've been getting blood clots during my period that are reasonable size and regular but I've never really worried about them before. Thismorning however, was a different story! I woke up today and thought I had wet the bed, I was drenched but when I got up I realised it was all blood.
I also have the same problem. Some months I go heavy for about 2 days and pass alot of clots some large some tiny. Then it slacks off and I am regular and fades to nothing within 3 more days. My last period I started on the 24th of August and went really heavy for about 10 days and then it slacked off to only spotting mildly throughout the day. A couple of days almost nothing.
i had my period for five days and it came back a day after with thick large bloobclotting

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?
On July 8th, I started to bleed again and its been constant, very heavy and there are a lot of large blood clots. I have also been having really bad abdominal cramps like you would experience with a heavy period as well as stomach pains. Since I have started bleeding I have had a pretty severe headache that just won't go away. Yesterday I started to get really, really bad stomach pains as well as increased bleeding. I was vomiting yesterday as well.
I just got my period 11 days ago and it is always very heavy in the beginning and slows down, i always have my period about 5 days.
