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
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
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more
I normally get my period very lightly for 2-3 days. I am on day 3 and passed a clot the size of my fist and am now having cramping and bright red blood that soak a tampon every hour for two hours.
See doctor ASAP: Any unexplained vaginal bleeding should be professionally evaluated, and with this amount of blood you should immediately contact your doctor (preferably gynecologist); or visit an urgent care clinic if s/he isn't available. The underlying cause isn't necessarily serious, but the amount of blood loss might be if it continues. Good luck! ...Read more

Anovulation: You may not have ovulated during your last cycle. This is why your period didn't come on time. I assume the case in which you are not pregnant (if there is any doubt, make sure you have a pregnancy test done). When you don't ovulate, your period won't come but the lining of the uterus continues to grow until it is too big for blood vessels to supply it. Then it starts shedding causing your symptom. ...Read more

See below: You could be experiencing spontaneous loss of an early pregnancy. About 25% of early pregnancies are lost spontaneously, mostly due to chromosomal defects in the embryo.

If you could get pregnant again, please take pre-natal vitamins. ...Read more

I hada pink/brown stain 3 days before my period was due, now I'm bleeding heavy bright red blood, no clots, I wokeup this morning feeling sick?
Miscarriage: Seems a likely possibility and if you are bleeding heavily enough that pads can't control it then you should be seen. Usually there would be some pain and at some point some clots but they might come later. If no possibility of pregnancy and much heavier than a noral period, you should also be seen. ...Read more
Is my spotting normal? Eleven days after my period stopped I began to have some bleeding. The blood is dark brown to black, and my stomach has been feeling odd. I've been using tampons but when I wipe there is still some bright red blood.
Spotting is not normal, and can happen for several reasons. The most important thing is to be sure that you are not pregnant, as spotting can happen during pregnancies, especially if it is a tubal pregnancy (ectopic), so please be sure that you are not pregnant. Spotting can also occur if your hormones are fluctuating, from stress or other issues.
If you have increased bleeding, any pain, light-headedness, or faint, then you must be seen as an emergency. ...Read more

Had my period 30th of july and next one came on 29th of august as expected, but as dark brown blood., for 3 days, now red blood with clots 5 days aft?
Clots is a concern:
While irregular periods are quite common (we see someone with a question about it at least hourly) none have clots and that implies something other than the usual periods that requires immediate (non-ambulance) attention.
This is general advice and I cannot say in your particular case how serious, but it certainly is not usual situation. ...Read more
I was 2 days early on my period and I have had seriously bad cramps and having huge blood clots and bright red blood. Why?
Abnormal period: Normal menstrual bleeding is dark in character and non clotting. Bright red bleeding with clots suggests arterial bleeding in which one can lose a significant amount of blood in a short period of time causing anemia. There are several causes, almost all of which involve hormonal or tumor problems. Please see you GYN MD when you can to be evaluated. ...Read more
Hi ive just passed a stringy bright red blood clot, im trying to fall pregnant, what does this mean? I have no pain and im due in 4 days for my period
Too soon to know: What you had may have been implantation bleed, but it is too soon to do a pregnancy test. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

Post coital bleed: It could just be some residual menstrual flow that hadn't passed yet, but more commonly bright red blood right after sex is from a friable cervix. Friable means bleeds easily when touched. Cramps can also just be from sex itself. Semen has a chemical in it called prostaglandins and that causes uterine cramping ...Read more

What you described falls within usual variations in menstrual periods. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
