Increased clots/pain: Any odor/ discahrge? itching? I would get checked for a vaginitis. I have seen left sided pain with yeast infections and mycoplasma/ureoplasma overgrowth ( yeast treat with antifungals, myco/ureo with Zithromax) or can be pre-menstrual . The increased clots could be variation ,stress or related to infection . f/u with doctor urgent care Good luck
