Depends. ..: You should contact your surgeon as only (s)he knows the size of your uterus, possible fibroids and any other factors that would affect your post-op course.

I miscarried on monday and im still having heavy bleeding and passing clots how long will this last?

Miscarriage: If the bleeding is getting lighter, it will likely resolve over the next few days. If it is as heavy or heavier than on Monday, you could have retained products of conception (meaning the miscarriage is not complete). You would need to see your gynecologist to determine if this is the case, and to take care of it if it is. Read more

Hi I just had a baby 2 months ago I am still having light bleeding and passing clots. It mainly happens after intercourse or when drinkin hot liquids.

It is unusual: To be passing large clots. I assume u r breast feeding. The ovaries may be starting to function again and this will normalize but you may benefit from the birth control pill. Bleeding severity is notably subjective. I doubt seriously that you have retainment of placental tissue as the source but you may have fibroids, etc. I think u should get checked along with a blood count and hcg. Read more

Not really: Bleeding the first 1-6 weeks after Mirena (levonorgestrel) is common but it should not be heavy with clots. Maybe an endometrial ablation would be a better option if this does not work in the next few cycles. Read more

Diagnosed with threatened abortion. 7 wks along, major cramping, bleeding and passing clots. Had blood drawn today. Am I have a miscarriage?

Diagnosed with threatened abortion. 7 wks along, major cramping, bleeding and passing clots. Had blood drawn today. Am I have a miscarriage?

Not always: A diagnosis of "threatened abortion" indicates that you've experienced cramping/bleeding during pregnancy that raise concern for possible miscarriage, however your exam shows a closed cervix and a fetal heartbeat indicating that things might still be just fine. Threatened abortions can resolve and normal, healthy pregnancies result afterwards. Be seen by your OB for any further bleeding/pain. Read more

Can be normal: Passage of clots into after a major operations such as a c-section, is not uncommon. This can occur up to several weeks, generally decreasing during that period of time.

4 days on my period I've had heavy bleeding &passing clots the size of two quarters sometimes I feel the clots pass &it's painful should I be worried?

Very common problem: Hi Mia,

I am very sure that you are uncomfortable. The cause of the symptoms you describe should be
investigated by a physician. She/he will likely rule out blood clotting problems, hormonal problems or problems with the uterus such as fibroids.
Do not worry there are many options available to you. Many options do not involve surgery therefore no interruption to your daily routine. Read more

Yes: Typically, this amount of bleeding is excessive; not necessarily abnormal. The brain-ovary-uterus axis is quite sensitive to a lot of things (e.g. Stress, weight changes, diet changes, etc...). Any one of these things, including a pregnancy, can alter the normal cycle. Read more
