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
I am having large blood clots and having to change super tampons every 3 to 4 hours. is this normal or should I seek medical attention?
I am in my early 20's and just last night and the day before, i have had a very heavy menstrual flow. I've gone through a super maxi in an hour or so and i've had large blood clots. I've had irregular periods my whole life, and my doctor has said this is due to the fact that i'm obese, but i've never had clots this big before or bleed this heavily. Is this normal for overweight women to have extremeley heavy periods?
But the big scare I have is when I take out my tampon, which I change about every hour to 2 hours, there are blood clots on it. Then when I am sitting on the toilet, more blood clots come out, and also when I wipe with toilet paper. They aren't HUGE like everyone else is saying, but they are bigger than a quarter, and it's never happened before & I started my period for the first time when I was 14. What should I do? Or is this all normal?
What I'm worried is since it coming back for the past 2 days, it been very heavy, I am passing huge black color blood clots (large one, very large). I do have blood clots but never I see this large before during my cycles in the past. Should I just wait couple more days and see? I really don't want to go to hospital, since I don't have health insurance to afford. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm just worried seeing the large blood clots.
i am a thirty six year old woman who has recently started to loose blood clots during her periods.On my last period i had twenty four hours where the blood clots were so large that they completely bypassed my tampons. My partner and I are trying for our first baby and I am now concerned that all is not well or that my body is changing and my chance of concieving has passed.
I am a 44 year old woman who has never had a full pregnancy and I am now having horrible periods with very heavy bleeding for about 2 days with large heavy clots of blood and very sharp cramps, I have started taking birth control pills to help the bleeding but about two days into my period the heavy bleeding and sharp pains happen. what does it mean?
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.
Ever since all my periods have been extremely heavy, and I pass very large and numerous clots. One clot last month filled the entire bottom of the toilet bowl. It was probably a 1/2 to 1 cup in size. Definately larger than a nickle or quarter. I used to think I had heavy periods before my last pregnancy, but this is ridiculous and worrisome.
The following is a brief explanation as to why menstrual clots (often large clots) are formed. All blood contains a clotting factor. To enable menstrual blood to flow freely from the uterus and leave the body without clotting, the uterus produces an anti-clotting agent: plasmin. However, when menstrual loss is heavy, the anti-clotting agent may not be adequate for the menstrual period and the blood is likely to form clots.
OK A WHILE BACK I HAD A VERY HEAVY PERIOD, IF WAS NOT ONLY HEAVY BUT LARGE BLOOD CLOTS APPEARED TOO. MY PERIOD IS NEVER NORMAL SOMETIMES I WILL COME ON BACK TO BACK FOR MAYBE 2 OR 3 MONTHS AND THEM I MAY SKIP 2 TO 3 MONTHS. I HAVE ALSO SKIPPED AS MANY AS SIX MONTHS BEFORE DOES ANYONE HAVE OR HAS HAD THESE SAME PROBLEMS.
This afternoon I passed a blood clot now. Should this conern me? Or can a cyst also cause clots to pass. I have had and upset stomach for days whenever I eat, yet it only seems to be right after I eat anything. It casues loose bowels, I figured it was the news medications I was on. But I am wondering about this blood clot thing...Should I worry? Or just put it all on the back burnner until Monday and try to speak with a doctor than?
hi, i know that clumpy blood clots are ok to have during periods but small ones.. do you take advil or motrin for pain during your period? i got also in the past big clots that really freaked me out, and when i spoke to my doctor she said that advil and motrin thins out the blood so the period goes through faster so it could be why you get clots . but what about another misscarriage? do you just get clots or do you have tissue like discharge also?
I was previously detected with PCOS, but when i try searching information on PCOS, it focuses more on missing periods rather than so heavy and long periods. Any contributions from anyone? any suggesstions?
continuously, so as to get rid of my periods. I've also always had insanely heavy and long periods, but this is a large deviation. I also did not have health insurance for the majority of my adult life and have only recently been to the gyno for the first time in 10 years (last child and tubal, cut, tied, and burned). I have been in and out of the dr.'s office. Turns out I have fibroids, cervical cancer, and endometriosis.
after that year, the bleeding increased, more and more, i am now almost 50 and i have heavy periods, i have clots, very painful, and i have known for the last year that i have cysts again. i am also having a lot of pain in my ovaries, maybe it's cervix, can't really tell... sharp,twisting stabbing pains, before, during and right after my period ends.. the doctor tells me i'm in the other 50% that the novasure didn't take.
so im going to call up my doctor and see if i can get in soon as possible, i heard having blood clots and expeally big blood clots arnt good. you need to call your doctor, she told me some people are good with it and some people arnt. and i guess i am one of them that doesnt do well on it. :( and thats a shame. im bleeding to much every day, with white stuff, and small and big clots.
Hi everyone, yesterday I brought my wife home from the hospital (7 days) after she was admitted for having blood clots. She has a blood clot in her upper arm/shoulder area, and a blood clot in each lung. The ONLY risk factor she has towards blood clots is that she is on birth control. She has been on Yasmin for around 4-5 months now (she was previously on orthotricyclin). My wife is 25 and a non-smoker.
