Normal period 4 days of moderate bleeding small clots the last 3 months period is 3 days, light bleeding no clots. What could cause the change?

Normal variation: Menstrual cycle duration and amount may vary from month to month and year. They are not usually the same over the course of a lifetime. If they remain regular and there is a flow, then there is not usually a problem.

4 days after my period ended I had unprotected sex that same day I took Plan B but 1week later I'm having light bleeding/small clots, is this normal?

Possible: It is not unusual to get some bleeding after the use of Plan B. Follow up with a doctor if you develop other symptoms if bleeding becomes heavier than 1 maxi pad an hour, fever, itching, burning.....

Need to see doctor: First, you need to do a pregnancy test to see if you are actually pregnant. Bleeding in pregnancy is never normal but does not necessarily mean anything bad. It could be normal implantation, a miscarriage or a pregnancy outside your uterus in your tube (an ectopic pregnancy). If your test is positive, you should see a physician as soon as possible for an ultrasound

Usually get brown spotting between periods but today it is a week and half after last day of last period and I have light bleeding with clots. Cancer?

Usually get brown spotting between periods but today it is a week and half after last day of last period and I have light bleeding with clots. Cancer?

Not likely: Have you had a PAP smear? If not, get one. You are still young enough to get HPV vaccine and should get it. The irregular bleeding is probably due to hormonal imbalance and may clear by itself. If you are losing more blood than usual, please take iron supplements available over the counter.

Spotting: You need a prg test., 3-5 days after you regular period. Light pink/ brown spotting could be a sign of implantation.

Missed period (not sure what day it was supposed to come on but was supposed to go off oct19), tender nipples, swollen blistered areolas, now light pink-red light bleeding no clots (started oct21) (normally a very heavy bleeder with clots), cramps, fatigue!

Not sure what your: ...question is, but, if you're having sex with a guy, the first thing you should do is check a pregnancy test. If there's no possibility of pregnancy or the test was negative, your hormones may just be out of whack. In that case, give your hormones a chance to get their act together. If your next menstrual cycle is also messed up, then see your gyro. Hope this helps. Dr. Anne

Hormonal imbalance: 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. Consult this site for more information on this topic. Http://www. Nichd. Nih.

Hi I just had a baby 2 months ago I am still having light bleeding and passing clots. It mainly happens after intercourse or when drinkin hot liquids.

It is unusual: To be passing large clots. I assume u r breast feeding. The ovaries may be starting to function again and this will normalize but you may benefit from the birth control pill. Bleeding severity is notably subjective. I doubt seriously that you have retainment of placental tissue as the source but you may have fibroids, etc. I think u should get checked along with a blood count and hcg.

Probably dif issues: Your gastrointestinal symptoms are probably not related. Birth control can be used to regulate your bleeding. Vaginal Discharge testing can be done to determine the cause and treatment. Your primary care doctor can address the GI symptoms

I'm having adominal pain on my left side & I've been bleeding 3 days after ovulation (which was on May 6) for 6 days. Not light bleeding & clots?

Check your premises: If you're bleeding from the uterus 3 days after "ovulation, " then you're probably not ovulating. See a doctor who can rule out pregnancy, STDs, cervical bleeding, and/or anovulation as causes of your irregular bleeding.

I had light bleeding with small clots for two weeks after ten days of period. And now I am having heavy bleeding with cramps. What would be.??

It depends on the: Rest of your recent menstruation history. If you have had irregular bleeding in the past or recently stopped hormone or contraception pills, or implants, then that would explain why your periods are changing. If you have had nothing to alter your periods, then other things like nutrition, stress, weight change, exercise, weather, mood can also play a role. I would wait a week to see change.

Plan B: It might be your period or it could just be bleeding as a side effect from Plan B. The presence or absence of bleeding does not determine the effectiveness of Plan B.

Irregular bleeding: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit.
