PROBABLY NORMAL: During a normal monthly menses (a period) a woman sloughs off the endometrial (uterus) lining. Blood, small clots and other debris are normal. Another possibility is a very early pregnancy/miscarriage which are very common and usually go unnoticed. A preganancy test may still test positive in some cases. ...Read more

When I went number two I noticed blood on the stool. I just started my period recently and wear tampons, can Dr still check to see what is wrong?

SURE THEY CAN: A doctor can certainly still check things out even if you are on your period. It sounds to me like you may have a hemorrhoid that is causing your problem. You're absolutely right to get it checked out to make sure that's what it is and then doctor can talk to you about what causes these and what to do both short and long term to avoid them in future. ...Read more

Watch: If you start to bleed heavily and it doesn't stop then go to the ER. Too much is typically considered soaking through more than a maxi pad an hour for 2 hours, or if associated with dizziness, shortness of breath, other symptoms. Heavy bleeding can also be 2nd removal of the IUD with disruption of the lining. It can also occur with infection. See a doctor to evaluate further ...Read more

Why is my period black? When I go to change my tampon, the blood, or whatever it is, is black. Why? Should I be concerned? It's been like this the past few periods. Is it even blood?

Blood: Blood from the period can appear black especially towards the end of the period. It is usually nothing to be concerned about. If you have other symptoms then see your gynecologist, but many women notice this occasionally and it usually varies from month to month. There are some gynecologists who feel it may represent a low iron level, so consider adding a vitamin with iron to your daily regimen. ...Read more

If: If there is a chance you could be pregnant take a pregnancy test. If it is negative, or there is no chance and if the bleeding persists beyond 14 days or so, you should see your doctor. Your doctor can give you a pill called Provera (medroxyprogesterone) to stop thr bleeding. Also a more detailed history and evaluation may be done to determine a cause versus monitoring.

I was five days late for my period and now it is bright red blood with clots and I go through a tampon every hour. Is that normal?

Probably not: The flow you are describing would not be considered normal, and needs treatment. Any time you are late for your period, you have to make sure you are not pregnant. The bleeding you describe could be an early miscarriage. If a pregnancy test is negative, you probably have a hormonal disturbance that will require medicine to correct. You should see a women's healthcare provider, right away. ...Read more
