Avatar f tn t usually get blood clots in my period at all, and as I was surprised to get my period as iv been on depo- provera I decided maybe I was unlucky enough to get it even though you usually don't (and I didn't the first time on this contraception). And it was such a heavy painful period so I sat down on the toilet for a while and passed a quite large blood clot, it was about 2cm wide and about 5cm long in a sort of c looking shape. I'm feeling a little worried, what could this mean?

Avatar f tn i have my tubes tied and every month i have my period, i have large size blood clots passing thru. Is this normal and what are my chances of becoming pregnant?
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 n tn I had large blood clots with my period as did my mother and as does my sister. Of course, with them came the horrible cramps, nausea, and other things for all seven days. I went to my doctor, and she put me on birth control. Things are definitely a lot better now, though I did eventually have to begin taking the pill so that I only have a period every four months. I'd recommend talking to your doctor because you shouldn't have to endure that.
Avatar f tn I'm 25 and for the past few years, I've had very heavy cycles with large blood clots. Sometimes I have to change my pads multiple times in an hour because the blood simply gushes. It's uncomfortable and makes it very difficult to leave the house since I do bleed through the pads and thus bleed through clothing very, very easily. The blood clots vary in size as well. Some are small, some are quite large. I'm not quite sure what I should do or what it could be?
Avatar f tn i understand that passing blood clots during menstruation is relatively normal however i passed a clot so large it woke me from a sound sleep. It was great than 2 inches in size. Is this normal? Please advise.
Avatar n tn I am 25 years old, with no kids. I have always had super super long periods. weeks. And now I am having another super heavy with giant blood clots period. (I've had my period for several months now, I can't remember when I didn't have it. It fluctuates in flow but I usually have to wear a tampon and an overnight pad.) What's wrong with me?
Avatar n tn I just found out I was in my first weeks of pregnancy yesterday, this morning I been bleeding not super heavy but period heavy and I had blood clots... what does that mean? I'm not miscarring right? Do I have to wait until the bleeding stops to take another pregnancy test to verify?
Avatar f tn Many women have clots in their menstrual blood from time to time. The clots may be bright red or dark in color. Often, these clots are shed on the heaviest days of bleeding. The presence of multiple clots in your flow may make your menstrual blood seem thick or denser than usual. Your body typically releases anticoagulants to keep menstrual blood from clotting as it's being released.
