Period clots/pain: The heavy bleeding with clots and the negative ultrasound for fibroids bears further investigation by your GYN MD. The painful bowel movements at the time of your period suggests the possibility of Endometriosis which is a direction of investigation that your GYN MD should pursue. Endometrial implants tend to occur in the most gravitationaly dependent part of the pelvis which is the rectum
