Clots usually indicate heavy bleeding. Other than that your periods seem a variation on the normal. Take oral iron and multivitamins to prevent anemia from blood loss. Get HPV, Flu and Covid vaccines. Wish you good health! Safe sex: https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/wellness-and-prevention/safer-sex-guidelines
