Expected: If you have infrequent menses, the uterine lining usually thickens uncontrollably if not shed. It is not unusual to bleed particularly heavily the first time after a period of missed bleeding. It is of concern only if it persists as that can result in anemia.

Brownish highly clotted discharge for a weekone week before period with very painful cramps. This is month 4 in a row this has happened. What do I do?

See your GYN: A very painful brown discharge with clots the week before your period 4 months in a row is clearly not something that is going away on its own. Time to see your GYN, PCP, or an urgent care clinic for a full history, exam, and appropriate testing to find out what is the problem and from there start to treat it. Hope this helps and you feel better fast. ...Read more

Brown big lumps of blood clot started 2 weeks before period. It lasted for almost a week. I'm not expecting to be pregnant.No intercourse.why is that?

Many causes: The menstrual cycle is under numerous influences, both externally (e.g. Stress, weight changes, diet, etc...) and internally (e.g. Pituitary gland, ovaries, adrenal glands, etc...). Additionally, pathology like uterine fibroids and endometrial polyps can also intervene. Sounds like a thorough work-up is in order. Of course, a pregnancy is always a consideration. Get with your ob/gyn asap. ...Read more

Started to spot 3 days before period light red, to a dark red with a few small clots then to a brown to a dark brown lasted 2-3 implantation bleeding?

Maybe: Spotting and bleeding starting 3 days before your expected period could be implantation but it could also be a normal cycle variation. To know for sure, check a pregnancy test and repeat it on 3-5 days if it is negative. Hope this helps. ...Read more
