It Takes A Long Time For My Blood To Clot
Variable.: With immobility or after injury, surgery, etc., can form in a short period os time, sometimes hours. May take longer - days or even weeks depending on your blood coagulability (anility to clot) and the underlying reason for the clot to form. If you are on ant-coagulants or have had an injury and clotting is not rapid, you may have a clotting problem. In either case, seek medical evaluation to chec.
More info needed: Blood clots in veins are treated with different types of anticoagulants than blood clots in arteries. To make matters more confusing, some people refer to a hematoma (a collection of blood outside of a vessel) as being a blood clot. No medicines are used to dissolve hematomas. So you need to discuss this with someone who understands exactly what the situation is.
Possibly quickly: We often see pulmonary emboli (clots to the lungs) on the initial ct scan when patients arrive in the er. Sometimes, if you have an injury that causes you to not walk well, the clot can develop over days to weeks.

Blood clot: If you are referring to blood test/ work-up, the results should be back within 2 weeks, in general. There are many factors that can make people to have blood clot- such as - post surgery, obesity, being on sterids or other medication- hormone/ ocp, testosterone, chemotherapy, cancer, hereditary problem/genetic mutation, etc,). Wait for the result and discuss in detail with your hematologist.
5-8 minutes: Well, that is the normal clotting time of blood in a glass tube, . It is a test called the lee-white clotting time. The normal "bleeding time" as measured by making a small cut on the forearm and measuring the time for bleeding to stop is 2-9 minutes. How long something bleeds is affected by many things. A larger artery could keep bleeding unless pressure were applied on the area.See 1 more doctor answer

Results: Hypercoagulation lab testing is extensive and can take up to a week or more for results. Sometimes the results are complicated, but the question is "what is your risk for another clotting event" and "how long should you be treated". However, if you have a blood clot currently, the diagnosis and treatment should happen quickly. Be well.

6-12 month: And some longer it depend on the clot, were and how treated.
Depends: Depends on the size, location and the general health of the individual and what medications the patient is placed on. Heparin is the gold standard but may be changing. There are many anti-coagulants. Coumadin (warfarin) is the mainstay for outpatient treatment. Newer meds may replace it for many reasons. Many clots are dissolved in 2-4 weeks.See 1 more doctor answer
Minutes: A healthy adult should form a clot within minutes after a tooth has been extracted. If the patient is on medication such as Aspirin or other blood thinners, the clot may take longer to form.

About 3 days: Dry socket usually becomes symptomatic approximately 3 days post-extraction. Chances of a dry socket are based on habits (smoking), the management of the surgical site, and which tooth was removed (dry socket is incredibly rare on extraction of upper teeth, most common for lower molars). See your dentist immediately if you suspect a dry socket so that a sedative dressing can be applied.
