Blood clots during period on birth control

Common Questions and Answers about Blood clots during period on birth control


Avatar f tn besides why do you not want to put your 15 year old daughter on birth control... go look on the maternal forum and the pregnancy under 18.. you will see MANY 16 year olds it would be safer IF ever she were to engage in intercourse-if she hasnt already!
Avatar m tn 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).

Avatar f tn I had 7-day periods that were heavy with clots and debilitating cramps and lower back pains before getting on birth control. The birth control made my periods 2-3 days with light to moderate flow and few clots if any. I can now function rather than be forced to stay home from school or other activities due to my period.
1069666 tn?1255243515 I'm 21 years old and I've been having blood clots with my period. When I was 13 I started out with a normal period but the next couple of years I started not having any that lasted till I was about 16, then it started with huge blood clots. Over the next couple of years I went to the doctors and they seem not to be able to help.
Avatar n tn i had my period for five days and it came back a day after with thick large bloobclotting
Avatar n tn I've been taking birth control for the past two years almost and I've never had a problem with my period on the pill. I've taken it religiously, since I started. But I'm on the 5th day of my placebo pills and I haven't gotten my period only two small brownish blood clots and mild cramps. I am not sure what to do should I wait until 5 days before my next period and then take a pregnancy exam? I have no idea as to what to do first. Is this normal? Should I make an appt.
Avatar f tn My boyfriend and i recently got married and while we were still dating i started using the 2month injection as birth control, but after a while i discovered that i had a burning, painfull sensation when we would have sex, we then resorted to using condoms again, and i stopped using birth control, well last month when i got my period it lasted only two days, when my normal period lasts between 6-8 months and this month, well tonight when i got my period i was in so much pain i felt like i was die
Avatar f tn Please seek advice from your gyn. You need to be put on something like Provera to stop your bleeding and then birth control pills to regulate your cycle. Bleeding as much as you are, is not a good thing. I was in the same boat as you were a few years ago. I too had to take Provera and then birth control pills for my PCOS.
Avatar f tn I know from my past experiences that it was normal for me. For instance I just went off the Mirena IUC and I clotted a lot. I think she should just keep an eye on it and keep tabs on how many pads she is soaking each day. If it seems like too many you might check with the doctor.
Avatar n tn I am 19 and have very bad blood clots when I have my period, sometimes the size of quaters. they cause really bad cramps to the point where its hard to go to work or even walk. should I go to the Dr or is this normal???
Avatar f tn Now 14 days later i started spotting then i notixe more blood not alot to fill a pad but just stains the bleeding is on and off not very heavy but it has some clots in it pretty normal period sized clots. I have a boyfriend that im sexual active with but im also on birth control. What can cause this? Can this be implantation bleeding? Should i see a doctor? My usually pretty normal this is the first time im going through this. Please help.
Avatar f tn I got my period this morning and i noticed that i have a lot of really big blood clots. The first few were just on my tampon when i took it out but then i had several large ones that when i took my tampon out the fell into the toilet. Ive never had this before. My medical history that has to do with my mentrual cycle is i have a history of ovarian cysts. None of them have been severe but have been painful to the point where they have landed me in the hospital.
Avatar n tn The doctor will start you on a basic birth control, probably combination estrogen / progestin, bare in mind there are different concentrations which can lead to different benefits/ side effects or they might not work as indicated at first. Doctors usually recommend 3 month trial before switching.
Avatar f tn It was posted Long period. I went to teh doctor on Tuesday and she prescribed birth control. Ortho Tri Cyclen. I started it the next day. Within 1 day off taking it the bledding stopped. I was estatic after having a period for 2 weeks. I just have VERY light pink discharge the deminished with each day. The only thing is I now have mild joint pain, muscle aches, and fatique with taking the pill. I am so upset.
Avatar f tn i am not on any birth control or anything and i have this exact same thing. large and small clots come out, mostly large and they last for 7 or 8 days! i always assumed it was normal though. i mean, i used to have short periods when i was young and active, but as soon as i became inactive they got heavy and long and painful. i usually can't do much of anything the first two or three days of it. let me know if you find out anything about it, please.
Avatar f tn Though it also may just be a side-effect of the birth control patch, which gives large does of hormones and is more likely to cause blood clots and other issues than the birth control pill or other forms of birth control. There are a lot of possible reasons for what happened, but only your doctor can tell you what exactly is going on. Hope it all goes well.
Avatar n tn 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!
Avatar f tn Good day, I have been passing large(and small) blood clots for the past several months. I went to my gyn and he found that I have polyps. Understanding that, I am still passing clots intermittently and it is detrimental to my sex life. Although my husband doesn't say anything, it's like playing russian roulette. You just never know when the clots will appear, could be before, during or after sex. THIS IS RIDICULOUS. Could this be related to endometriosis? How can this be resolved?
Avatar f tn How does birth control stay in your system after you stop taking it? I have been on the pill since is was 17 and i am now going to be 21 next month and I was on the same pill for 3 yrs roughly then switched to seasonique and have been on it for roughly a year. I am getting married in July of next year and i wanted to know when i should stop taking it soo that i could get pregnant around july?
1486020 tn?1354028475 maybe it wasn't you'r actual period. was it heavier then spotting. before i got pregnant. i wasn't on birth control but sometimes during my menstrual cycle. i wouldn't have clots it would be shorter and light in color. maybe you'r body is just flushed out. i really have no insight sorry.
Avatar n tn I know that going onto birth control and having your partner use condoms is key to keeping pregnancy at bay, but I was wondering about what kind of birth control is best? I heard that the patch is bad and can cause blood clots, but what pill is the best? Aren't there, like, twenty different kinds? Help.
Avatar f tn and today i bled pretty moderately to heavily and there were clots galore (but i always have clotting with my period) but now the cramps and the blood flow has stopped?! does this happen during a period or could it be a sign of pregnancy. i'm very concerned and confused. i'm praying its not pregnancy considering i am a virgin.
Avatar f tn I'm 34 and six months post partum. I'm interested in going on the Nuva Ring but nervous about blood clots. It's never been an issue for me in the past when I've been on birth control, and I didn't get clots while pregnant. However, when I was pregnant and they tested my blood at 8 weeks pregnant to see how likely I might get clots, I was told it was slightly elevated, but cleary not enough for them to be concerned or test me again. I don't smoke and am in good health.
1949625 tn?1324452696 I went to a gynecologist for the first time on Halloween because I had been having a horrible period it lasted for two and a half weeks and I would pass blood clots every time I moved on the couch and I had to use three super absorbent overnight pads and two normal overnight pads otherwise all of the blood would go through the pads and my underwear and stain my sheets or the couch cover, she tested me for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome which she said I didn't have she said the only thing that w
