Heavy period with large clots

Common Questions and Answers about Heavy period with large clots


Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar n tn hello, i have had regular periods for the past 4 months and the bleeding is normal and this period i have just had was 2 days late and its been very heavy with large blood clots. I am changing pads every hour and still leaking. Is this normal?
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 For the past year my monthly period has been very heavy passing lots of large blood clots. It had, for a couple of months slowed down with the clots, but this month is ridiculous. I'm now on my 12th day and still passing blood clots bigger than golf balls. There is no pain involved and i've never had any cramping, not younger nor at the age I am. I was thinking the clotting was the lining and i'd probably be period free before long.
Avatar n tn I was having almost six months of very heavy bleeding.....Have a talk with your gyn.she probably will be able to advise you............
Avatar n tn Past periods have been heavy and even sometimes painful but never with such large clots or unpredictable flow. There is very little cramping with this period, which is also unusual. Also, it is about 1 week early. Just concerned, or should I be? Is this just another step towards pre-menopause?
Avatar n tn I also have the same problem. Some months I go heavy for about 2 days and pass alot of clots some large some tiny. Then it slacks off and I am regular and fades to nothing within 3 more days. My last period I started on the 24th of August and went really heavy for about 10 days and then it slacked off to only spotting mildly throughout the day. A couple of days almost nothing.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar f tn I do not have an answer to this "I've heard that an egg can get fertilized but not have enough time to implant and be washed away with menstruation could this be the reason for the large clot ?" But as you read, some women do tend to have clots as large as quarters so you do not need to worry about that. Best of luck to you in conceiving!
Avatar n tn i had light bleeding for 2 days afterwards then it got heavy and i passed clots for about a week i just started my period today and i need to change my pad every hour or sooner as well i am pssing large clots probably evrey half hour or so.
Avatar n tn i take birth control and i started 2 weeks early. and it was light the first day and now it is very heavy with major blood clots. i have not clue what is going on either?????
Avatar n tn I had a baby 7 months ago and started taking the pill before I had my first period. I am having a very heavy period and its gone into my fourth day, its bright red and seems to have tissue in it and its not my pill free week yet. could there be something wrong?
Avatar f tn does anyone know what it means to have large blood clots that are half tissue and half blood.... i am not prego...i amjust on my period and this is the first time that it has happen to me and right now i am scared.....
1004597 tn?1250279449 I always have a fairly heavy period and blood clots during, but this month I'm having an extremely heavy period and literally had a blood clot the size of 2 50 cent pieces (which i know isn't normal), but could i have had a miscarriage (my period wasn't a day late) or have something seriously wrong that i should go see my Doc about?
Avatar n tn Recently, I miss a period and this month's period is very, VERY heavy, with painful, all day cramping, and the passing of large clots. Not sure if this a cause for concern and just needed some response and help! Thanks!
Avatar n tn I am 42 years old and on birth control, I have hardly had a period, mainly spotting, in years. This month I had a heavy with blood clots for 1 week then it stopped for 2 days and all of a sudden it felt like I was gushing, I was but lots of large clots. This has been going now for 2 days, heavy period and clotting again. Is this a sign of menopause or something else?
Avatar n tn Well I'm 16 my periods are very abnormal, and long and sometimes with no pain. So ive always tought that was okay until my mother period got very heavy and blood clots are huge and everything and she was declared anemic and she was losing blood through her vagina thinking it was her period! Do have any other starnge things wrong with you? like tiredness and stuff? Maybe you should take another check up.
Avatar f tn For whole week I been bleeding a lot with a lot of large blood clots coming out. Couple days ago I went to the ER, and they did my blood test, result normal, not yet loosing blood. Did an urine test, result normal, no infection. Did an abdominal sonogram (ultrasound) come out normal, not showing fibroid. So they discharge me home, they say I am having heavy menstrual.
