What causes painful periods with heavy flow and clots that are the size of half dollars?

What causes painful periods with heavy flow and clots that are the size of half dollars?

Heavy periods: If your periods are too painful and normal pain medications don't help, see a GYN for consultation and maybe US to determine whether or not you have masses/fibroids, endometriosis, or adenomyosis.

Could a tight/closed cervix cause extremely painful periods and infertility?Would my dr notice this on examinging me? Concerned he missed something

It could: Technically its called a "stenotic cervical os". It can cause painful periods. It could possibly, but not usually, cause infertility.

A gynecologist should be able to tell on an exam, but might not mention it, if symptoms weren't discussed previously. Also, another type of md might miss it. ...Read more
