Vaginal bleeding ?: With no periods "for four months" and the onset of heavy vaginal bleeding with clots, see your gyn physician immediately. Pregnancy is possible, and it may be outside the uterus, so get a serum HCG test to be certain. If the test is negative, your physician may obtain a pelvic ultrasound which may lead to other treatment.
