Common Questions and Answers about Heavy period with large clots


Avatar f tn Tuesday night, I started bleeding really heavy and passing large clots. These clots were a quarter size or larger, and this lasted all night Tuesday night. Wed. I stopped the heavy bleeding and begain to have the clear discharge mixed with a little blood again. I am now also having a lot of breast leakage!!! ??? I took a pregnancy test today to be on the safe side, and it was negative.
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!

1941515 tn?1323894594 I have been on my period for 2 days now blood is running down my leg like every 20 mins I am changing my pad. I am bleeding really heavy and lots of cramps with back pain and large blood clots bigger than a half dollar do you know what is causing this?
Avatar f tn It's most likely just nothing to worry about. Sometimes our bodies are just plain weird at times. And feel thankful it only lasted 2 days. Dark color is nothing to worry about as long as you don't have large clots and the cramps unbearably painful. But it just sounds like your cycle went out wack for a bit, and changing your usual habits will trigger your hormones to act differently.
Avatar f tn Might be tmi but how was your first period after having your baby? Light/heavy, how long it last? Color... Im a little worried cause I've been bleeding for almost 7 days very heavy and i have never had a period like this before....
Avatar f tn I started my period on Saturday morning, it's now Tuesday afternoon and it's still pretty heavy. I usually only have about a day or so of really heavy bleeding. I don't really have any major cramps, I don't see any unusually large clots, and I feel pretty normal except for the heavy bleeding. I'm really worried, anyone have any ideas?
Avatar n tn I have never had a regular period. I can easily go months without having one. My problem now is that I'm having a period that is ongoing. I'm about 15 days in with extremely heavy bleeding. I have to use an overnight pads so that I won't have to change every two hours. Along with the heavy bleeding I'm experiencing large clots. I do not know what to do. What could possibly be wrong?? Do I need to see a doctor? I have had periods like this before but not to this extreme.
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 Well mine is slowing down now, cause on monday I thought I was gonna have to go to the er because I changed pads 15 times, with large blood clots every time I was goin to the bathroom, but now is slowing down
Avatar f tn I used to always have big clots during my period and would pretty much sit in the bathtub because I bled so much. One day I went to the ER for it. They took my bloowork and came back and said my thyroid messed up and that I had hypothyroidism. Since I have been taking my thyroid medicine, my bleeding has slowed immensely. So you might want to ask about that.
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 Anyway, for as long as I can remember, my period blood has always been clumpy and clotted. The clots or whatever get rather large and it kind of freaks me out. Why is it like this? Is there something wrong with me?
Avatar f tn hosp, both found nout, the last few days ivbeen bleeding very heavy with large blackish clots with grayish stringy bits i know it sounds horible!! any ways with all the back pian & cramps im fed up with docs not finding nout,..??
Avatar f tn It is normal to pass some small clots during your period, but the clots you describe in your question were not normal for you. Abnormal clots can indicate a few different things such as fibroids, hormone fluctuation, miscarriage. It might be best to speak with your doctor and make sure that everything is OK. The pain that you describe when removing your tampon, may be because it was a lighter day and the tampon was too large for the blood flow.
Avatar f tn I've had my period for 16 days now. Extremely heavy bleeding with very large clots. The blood has been bright red and does not show signs of stopping. I'm nauseous, .moody, and very tired. I've read that I could become anemic, any idea how to prevent that or even better, stop the bleeding? Thanks!
Avatar f tn May 2016 is where it all started. I was hemorrhaging with large clots. I just turned 40. The 1st hospital gave me a depo shot. I've since had a DNC,been to a hematologist with no answers and still bleeding heavy with clots. There have been times in the last 9 months that I only saw blood when I wiped. The majority of the last 9 months has been non stop bleeding with small and large clots.
Avatar f tn For last 1 year I am having very heavy bleeding with clots. Doctor did D/C for three times during this period. This problem started after birth of my young child by C/setion. Doctor also put merina coil for 2 times but it did not work. I had D&C about 20 days ago and doctor gave me injection Decapeptyl and put merina coil. But this also does not seem to be working. Any help on this.
Avatar f tn 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.
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 d start out really heavy with clots. Big clots or small clots. Then get lighter. Some periods without clots at all. In these forms it should be normal. Nothing to worry about.
