Common Questions and Answers about Heavy periods 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?
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!
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?
My breasts have also been very sore and when I have discharge from my nipples (when I squeeze them) My bleeding has been quite heavy. Before this my periods were perfectly normal. I'm thinking it may bee a hormonal imbalance, but has anybody gone through something similar? It couldn't be a miscarrige, as I've been abstaining from sex. I'm waiting until this ll ends (hopefully soon) and I will see my doctor.
I am 38. I pass a lot of blood clots during my periods, large and small. Is it normal? I also have painful periods and lasts for six days. Is there anyway to stop periods in 3 or 4 days? Please suggest a remedy for this.
HI, Heavy and irregular bleeding can be because of some pelvic pathology like fibroids, endometrial hyperplasia, adenomyosis etc. Hence an examination and an ultrasound scan should be done to make the diagnosis. Consult a gynaecologist. Hope this helps.
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?
The typical signs of adenomyosis are prolonged, heavy bleeding during your periods or severe cramping. Symptoms of endometriosis include pelvic pain(usually before menstruation but sometimes during intercourse, urination or defecation), sometimes diarrhea or constipation, irregular or heavy menstrual bleeding, sometimes blood in the urine and inability to conceive. Although ultrasound is useful in diagnosing endometriosis, but still cannot definitively diagnose endometriosis.
sometimes heavy with lots of pain and lasts for 5-6 days, other times heavy no pain but last up to three weeks with very large clots and back feels sore. have been checked for PCOS was negative, used oral contraceptive doesn't work, and still can't find the problem. Need help because i am now in university and it is interrupting my studies as i have to be changing and wearing two napkins as often as six times per day and having fear of messing up when i stand after sitting.

I have also been having really bad abdominal cramps like you would experience with a heavy period as well as stomach pains.

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.

I HAVE ALSO SKIPPED AS MANY AS SIX MONTHS BEFORE DOES ANYONE HAVE OR HAS HAD THESE SAME PROBLEMS.
When menstrual bleeding is heavy, clotting tends to occur. Experiencing menstrual clots can be upsetting. If the clots are large they can be painful and cause cramping as they pass through the cervix. 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.
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?
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.

Let me tell you!!!! That was the best thing I ever did!! I used to have very heavy periods, huge clots (bigger than a ping pong ball) and bleed for weeks at a time. I could not even use tampons any more. At night I used depends!! (once) Now since this "baloon surgery" I have not had a period in 1 1/2 years!! they also refer to this surgery as an alternitive to a hystorectomy. The surgery is painless (they put you out) the next day I was fine.
