Common Questions and Answers about Heavy periods clotting causes


Avatar f tn It has been very heavy and she is also passing clots. What could this be? She has always had heavy periods but they have never lasted this long - with no let up yet.
5856747 tn?1403352282 Menstrual cycles can only be considered irregular when they cease altogether for long periods and for no obvious cause only to return again sporadically and unpredictably. Causes of Irregular Periods. • During the first year or two after periods begin (the menarche) periods will be sporadic until hormones come into balance. • Similarly, during the last year or two before the menopause it is normal that periods should become irregular before ceasing altogether.
Avatar f tn I think there is more wrong than just a polyp, because they said it should not be causing this bad of an issue. I have always had heavy periods, and other issues, but this is different. Other symptoms that I have had for a long time: Severe cramping, some times doubled over in pain or unable to stand. Sometimes reminds me of a runner cramp, or what you get when you exercise too hard. Cramping when not on my period.
Avatar n tn I'm 53 (my mother went into menopause at 55). I had approx 6 months of heavy periods with clotting - each incident lasted for 2 weeks - then 2 weeks later, it started again. Went to a new gyno - who prescribed both an ultrasound and an emdometrial biopsy - both showed no internal problems. She put me on Seasonale bcp which works on your hormones to give you a period every 4 months. Bleeding stopped in 2 days - worked great in that regard.
Avatar n tn has been a consistent 21 days, with severe cramping and heavy bleeding. Last January I went 6 weeks between periods, and thought I was pregnant, but was not. Since then there are anywhere from 10 days to 21 days between periods, still very painful and heavy. I have had a couple cysts in the past, but none currently. I have been tested for PCOS and bloodwork to check my thyroid, but everything has come back OK.
1725328 tn?1321077383 Hello, You seem to be having the symptoms of metrorrhagia(heavy periods).Various factors causing it are endometriosis,ectopic pregnancy,hormone imbalance,endometrial hyperplasia,polyps,use of IUD’s and depo shots, sexually transmitted diseases,PCOS and benign and malignant pathologies of the uterus. Get it evaluated from your gynecologist to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar n tn I take 600mg tablet 3-4 timeseach day I have my period and it has greatly reduced the clotting and heavy bleeding as well as the cramping.

Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone can advise me, i want to see a health care professional but it is a bit embarrassing. i have had heavy, painful, clot filled periods since age 11, they always start and finish brownish but have been brown the whole time now and foul smelling, no red blood at all. I'm beginning to worry. Haven't been right a few months now but this is by far the worst yet. I have been extremely pale and feeling sickly too.
Avatar n tn I am currently 6 weeks 6 days pregnant and have had heavy bleeding and clotting for several days. The dr has ruled as a progressing miscarriage but i am also staying prayed up.
491171 tn?1221508225 My last couple of preiods have been really heavy & I have had alot of clotting...I have been reading alot on chemical preganacy ,do you think thats what it is or just heavy flows.I have also been in alot of water this summer could that effect your flow too???
Avatar n tn Hi, I am 16 and I have always had very heavy periods with some clotting. Is this ok?
Avatar n tn Hi there, There are several causes of having your periods twice in a week. Whether merina removal is leading to these symptoms can be confirmed only after I examine you. Hormonal imbalances.pregnancy, miscarriages are few conditions leading to irregular episodes of bleeding. Since you are also having heavy bleeding along with frequent bleeding you need to be investigated. Clotting disorders, uterine fibroids, polyps, adenomyosis are common conditions leading to heavy bleeding.
Avatar f tn The heavy bleeding with clotting and nausea is more likely to be Plan B messing with your cycle, which it can do for a while in some women.
Avatar f tn I jave been having very heavy & prolomged periods for the last 8 months. I had an ultrasound done which showed a small fibroid. My doctor seems to think this couldn't possibly be causing my problem & prescribed Provera for 10 days to START my period. I'm not taking it because I'm not going to intentionally start what I know will be a month long debilitating period bedore it's due.
Avatar f tn Low iron and abnormal blood clotting factors are also possible but much less common in your situation. There are other possible causes as well. You should know if the IUD works in a month or two. Some people find taking an Advil or similar medication just before inserting the IUD helps reduce the cramps that sometimes happen when the IUD is inserted. Machelle M.
Avatar n tn Marianne, I know it is gross, but it is totally normal. My periods were like that all of the time. I do not know what causes it, but do not worry. I hope things get better for you.
Avatar n tn Recently, the yasmin has started to not work efficiently, whereby I now have breakthrough bleeding, and very heavy periods with lots of clotting. Went to a GYN, and I'm due to have blood tests to determine hormonal levels, etc. My question is the following: The GYN told me that it wasn't safe to be on the birthcontrol pill for any woman over 40. Now, I'm active, I run, I'm not overweight, no breast cancer in our family, etc.
Avatar f tn I tried using both a tampon and a pad, but it still didn't work. It is really heavy and there is also really dark blood clotting. I am so confused and always have been. I am not sexually active. When I am not on my period I have clear substance coming out of me still... not a clue what is giong on. I used to bevery active, but due to a concussion I cannot workout. I am on Citalopram for Depression. A lot is going on and I need help!!! Could it be genetic? Any thoughts or ideas?
Avatar f tn I went to my general physician due to seemingly endless periods with heavy clotting. I had excessive and long-lasting periods for several months, which coincided with a HUGE shift in my stress levels. Once I broke down and went to the doc, test results showed that my thyroid was underactive along with having almost depleted my iron stores. Again, STRESS. Upon re-test a month later, my thyroid numbers were apparently recovering on their own.
172411 tn?1287089865 Hi there, I've had Stage IV endo for almost 20 years now and there are no consistencies with it, that I can tell you. Sometimes my periods are ridiculously light, 2-3 days & done. Some are brutally heavy and spot well over a week. Some don't seem to stop between one period & the next. Good luck!
5675963 tn?1372174787 Menorrhagia is the term used to describe menstrual bleeding characterized by heavy flow and/or prolonged duration. Heavy flow lasting more than seven days but occurring with regular monthly periods may be normal for some women. However, menorrhagia is a symptom, which is usually the result of an underlying condition.
Avatar n tn some of the questions he asked me were, did i have pain down either of my legs, did i have alot of back pain, and was there alot of clotting and heavy bleeding when i did have my period. maybe you can talk to your doc. about some of these things if you are expereincing any of them. hope everything turns out well.
Avatar f tn What I saw in the toilet bowl can only be described as some sort of tissue. I have no history of clotting or very heavy periods. This thing was longer than my middle finger and larger than my thumb. It appeared to almost be sac-like and it was covered in bright red blood. I'm not sure if this is a threatened miscarriage, clotted menstrual cycle, or a pregnancy. During my first pregnancy I didn't stop having bleeding until the 2nd trimester.
2002523 tn?1327616387 I went to my gyn due to seemingly endless periods with heavy clotting. She suspected adenomyosis and/or polyps since a recent trans-vag ultrasound showed no fibroids. I had an endo biopsy and all they found was polyp tissue. I've since started taking a 91- day pill (Introvale). After 4 weeks, I started spotting and then a week later it progressed to the same old heavy bleeding with clots...
552173 tn?1282606890 Hello, Since your bleeding has turned heavy and is associated with clotting now,chances of implantation bleeding are bleak.It now seems to be intermenstrual bleeding. Intermenstrual bleeding may be due to many causes.It can be due to genital infections esp chalamydia or cervical polyps .They are tiny, harmless growths on the outer surface of the cervix and can bleed after intense sexual intercourse.Stress and anxiety can also cause intermenstrual bleeding.
304970 tn?1331429594 Ironically a condition that causes uterine tissue to get backed up in your body causes heavy, clotty periods and irregularity and pain. I'd also have hormones checked on and a sonogram to see what they may find. But endometriosis is usually diagnosed via laproscopy because a sonogram cannot always detect it.
2042830 tn?1333869167 This is what happened last year when I had so much cystic chocolate that ruptured. I was in so much pain and so much clotting came out for months and then they said endomitosis ans andometriosis... Wondering if it could be endomitosis cancer?? Any info from anyone would be appreciated....
Avatar n tn I was going to dr to determine whay I have had bleeding off and on (period heavy) for almost straight 2 months, sometimes about 4 days non blkeeding before it starts up again. I ALWAYS have had heavy cramping and bleeding for periods even before the IUD. I have pain on ovulation but no bleeding. I was given blood tests for virus and stds and cultures for bacteria. But no PAP two weeks ago because I was bleeding.
