Period delay: With a "delayed period for 10 days" and heavy bleeding with clots, get a serum HCG test which is much more accurate than "home tests". Pregnancies outside the uterus can present like described (ectopic) , so find out immediately to be certain, and see your gyn provider for an exam and testing.
