Agree with Dr. B: While blood clots during periods are normal, these indicate excessive blood loss and you risk becoming anemic. Take oral iron and multivitamins to prevent anemia. Your doctor can prescribe pills that can limit your period to one in 3-12 months. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health!
