Blood clots during period while on the pill

Common Questions and Answers about Blood clots during period while on the pill


Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn I had them every month from when I started my period until I got on the pill. I don't have clots since being on the pill. They must be normal though 'cause I had them for about 8 years and everything is fine.
Avatar f tn ive only missed a a pill(just 1) during the first month of me taking it but i havent missed my pill but not since. and recently ive started having blood clots (im not sure if thats what its called. balls of blood) and at first it was kinda small but not really. now they are getting bigger. now its like a inch ish. ive talked to all of my friends and none of thems had any blood clots at all. i dont know what to do or if its my birthcontrol.
284738 tn?1283110419 ” There is a third effect of the contraceptive pill. This effect is on the lining of the womb. What this does is to harden the lining of the womb—we say, make it hostile to implantation to this one-week-old embryo. If this is the function that prevents “pregnancy” that month, then it is implantation that is prevented. And this implantation, if prevented, kills a tiny one-week-old baby.
Avatar n tn for the last 1 and a half years I took my pill (Yasmin) regularly), and always had a steady normal flow every 28 days, for the last 3 months after coming off the pill I only took the pill on those days I had sex with my ex..stupid I know..even though I took the pill irregularly my period was only ever at the most 4 days late...however,I had sex on the 29.,30.,1.,and 2.
Avatar f tn This has been going on for 5 days. I'm on a birth control pill so at first I thought symptoms were due to irregularity taking it (missed one or two and sometimes took later than usual in the day during the last month). Took a home pregnancy test just to make sure - it was negative. I've recently been stressed out, but otherwise okay. I recently had a gynecology exam and they didn't mention anything unusual.
Avatar f tn I know I want to get back on the pill to stop the heavy bleeding and broken back syndrome. High blood pressure or not I can't handle this. And if it's making this watery discharge worse then that's adding insult to injury. I have to go back to my OB/GYN girl to check on the BP and ill ask about the discharge. I hope she can give some answers. I'll keep you updated!
Avatar n tn I was in the emergency room last week for a pulmonary embolism due to a few small blood clots in my lung. I have been on Yasmin for 4.5 years and am now off the pill and taking blood thinners and having to give myself injections. Like many of you say above, I could be taking them for the rest of my life. This is one of the scariest things I have had happen to me. Like many others, I am a 27 year old healthy female who has not smoked ever.
Avatar n tn I have recurrent cold symptoms during my period. I have noticed the symptoms for about a year but for the last six months they have happened every month around the third day of my period. Symptoms include aching joints, blocked nose and headaches as well as generally feeling awful. Periods are heavy and painful with clotting for about seven-nine days. Cold Symptoms usually last 5-7days.
Avatar n tn The doctor told me that cause I was on my period while I took the blood test is probably why the results were negative. I’m still having my symptoms and it seems like they are getting worse. Two weeks ago, I was at a club and was feeling fine. Around 2ish, I began to feel nauseated. I didn’t have anything to drink. The next day, I felt the same way. Christmas morning, I was eating breakfast and felt my mouth warming up. This past Saturday, I felt nauseated once again.
Avatar n tn it is normal to pass clots during your period and anything larger than a quarter may be a concern. i have passed clots before during my period when its heavy on the toilet and it does have that "feeling" when it comes out. but i would give the gyno. a call and ask about it.let us know if you get any answer.
Avatar f tn i am on the patch on my patch free week, and my period is about a day late. i was having very bad cramps this morning and desided not to go to school. so i stayed home and watched a movie while holding a blanket to my lower admin to hopefully stop my cramps. i went to the restroom and a think chunck of skin with slight blood and red spots feel out of my vag, im 18 and have been on this birth control for 2 months, earlier this week i have been feeling very sick and have never seen this before.
Avatar m tn Some women will notice their breasts get fuller/larger after being on the pill for a while while some notice no change in appearance. While I don't think you're pregnant this time, I will advise you to be careful and consider using a condom with your boyfriend in case. The pill does not protect you from STDs, and you can still get pregnant if you do not use your pill correctly (forget for several days, miss and double up more than 2-3 times in a month).
Avatar n tn Its where you have a build up of hormones and your body remembers shedding the lining of your uterus while have a period and goes on to do the same thing... however there is no egg and no actual cycle and it usually only happens during the first trimester of the pregnancy.
Avatar n tn Then 5 days ago i started having light flow, dark red period blood one week prior to when my period should start. now that i am on the period week, brown discharge is continuing; my regular period hasn't resumed. Two days ago i had sex for the first time in 3 weeks. i read responses to a similar question, but i really don't think i could be pregnant- we usu always use condoms in addition to birth control pills. so what could be going on?
415165 tn?1243663947 i had the miren iud put in and before i found out it dislodged itself while on my period, i bled horribly, i would have to change my tampon every 10 minuets, and i was passing blood clots like crazy. i went to the ob/gyn today, and as soon as he seen me he said, i looked horrible and sad and exhausted. i told him i havent even been able to do anything other than give my daughter a bath, and put her to bed, because i felt so tired.
187316 tn?1386360282 Getting pregnant while on the pill is often associated with bleeding during pregnancy that can be confused with a menstrual cycle. Many women who are on the pill have several bleeding episodes before they realize that something is not quite right. In cases like this a woman usually cannot accurately tell her doctor when her last real menstrual cycle was and an ultrasound is required to provide the mother and the doctor with an estimated due date.
Avatar f tn at this point, after not being able to have sexual relations with all the blood clots, cramping and general disinterest in any of that action altogether, sure, what the heck. Cut that **** out and let me get on with life! But it does seem pretty dramatic. To go from popping a worthless pill every morning (which messes with my moods) to having the whole contraption removed seems...extreme. And I rather like having a cervix and girly bits. I have no idea what to think.
Avatar n tn My husband and I worked on it in Jan during my ov cycle. In march, I had the period like symptom. During the time I should of been ov, we did not try, due to me not feeling very well. This month, the same thing. My period was suppose to start on the 4th. Once again I had the brown spotting with a pink discharge. Only during the I used the bathroom. Nothing else and nothing heavy. If you got any new info on this I would appreciate some feedback. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I am also using the nuvaring and having the same problems but worse. I went to the doctor while the heavy bleeding was happening, it was so bad I thought I was having a miscarriage. I was tested for pregnancy but it came back negative. I was told to come back in the middle of my cycle. So anyway I was just wondering what your doctor told you?
Avatar n tn The doctor couldn't explain either now I bleed during the day all day non stop I cramp like crazy and the blood clots will fall right out of me unto my pad the wen I sit on the toilet I can literally push blood Clots out! It was a bunch of clots in one day!I'm scared the doctors r is saying the same things its not an explanation which is crazy cuz I'm four mnths and never had or bled luke this in my entire life!
Avatar m tn The doctor gave me 2 pills of the drug Multaq on the 29th, and I was released from the hospital that day. I took another Multaq pill the next morning at 9am and had Cardiac Arrest at 1pm. A friend started CPR immediately. I had no heart beat or pulse for over 7 minutes. Paramedics arrived and Cardioverted me again. I was hospitalized and a Medtronic pacemaker/Defribrillator was installed. My Ejection Faction dropped from 40 to 28%.
Avatar n tn My periods are much heavier than they were while on the pill, but nothing that extreeme. Although, twice now (but not during consecutive periods) I have been having extremely bad clotting during my period. I have no cramps or any pain whatsoever (and I feel absolutley fine in all other ways). It's just rather disurbing for this much blood and large clots to be coming out. Any suggestions or concerns? I know that fibroids result in clotting but I have also read that they are extremely painful.
193609 tn?1292183893 Jenshim, I can't take any form of birth control or any hormones becuase i had blood clots, so it is an IUD or nothing. The closest planned parenthood is 2 hrs away, I live in the middle of no where, so I am going to look into it.
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing very mild, but noticible nausea around the time I ovulate and again right before, during and after my period. It is not all the time during the day, but feels very strange and unusual and has consistently come and gone during these times. I would think I were pregnant if it had not been going on for a few months and if I had not had regular, heavy periods. We are trying to get pregnant and I wonder if something is out of balance with hormones?
Avatar n tn 2013 I had my wonderful son I was only 6months and I had 3 months to go my son was born 2pounds and 8ounces and so now its like its all happening again but only this time after a year last nite the pain came back but this time it happens while im driving or at the store in my sleep and while im cleaning the house I whent to the doctor and got a ulta sound and blood testes done x-raxs done they said everything is fine everything is good but I don't know something is wrong with me can any one help
Avatar m tn So I go to a Vascular place near me and they do ultrasounds on both legs, and the nurse practitioner on duty said they could not even talk about doing VNUS on the other leg as they discovered two blood clots in my right leg, and those had to be immediately addressed first. According to her, I have two clots, and while they are both superficial, they are both "very close" to a main arterial area, scaring them that these could move/shift and become DVT type clots.
Avatar n tn hi i was wondering my dr put me on prometrium during this pregnancy has anyone else takin it while pregnate and had a succussful pregnacy the bottle says not to take during pregnancy im confussed please help
Avatar n tn ) but those 5 months I got chronic lower back pain during my periods. No pain during pregnancy with him. After I had him, I went back on the pill for about a year and then what do you know, came off it to try for a second baby and the pain came back. MAJORLY. Finally saw a gynaecologist who said he thinks I have Endo and that either the pill, pregnancy or laparoscopic surgery will reduce it. That was 6 months ago. I also miscarried before I saw that doctor at 4.5weeks too.
