My sisters 10 and having blood clots when on her period. Should I tell mom?

Many options: If you have a familiar clotting disorder then pregnancy is much more high risk than birth control. Consider getting tested to see if you are a carrier of these genetic disorders. Progesterone only methods such as Skyla, Mirena (levonorgestrel) and Nexplanon are still options. A hormone free Paragard copper IUD is another. You could also use condoms as an option. ...Read more

I have large blood clots on my period. What's wrong with my blood, or with my uterus?

I have large blood clots on my period.  What's wrong with my blood, or with my uterus?

Probably nothing: Most women see clots with their periods. If they are really too large, you might be losing too much blood and be anemic, though. If you're pale, tired, short of breath, this could be the case. Also if your periods are very long (a week or more) or you bleed all month, this might mean your uterus is bleeding. If you have any of these symptoms, you should be checked by a professional. ...Read more

Need More Info: Your period starting with a brownish discharge is not at all uncommon. Some things that would make me more concerned for PCOS are whether periods are regular, do you have any increased body or facial hair growth, do you still get a lot of acne, do you have areas of darkening of the skin on your neck or elbows and more. Does diabetes run in the family, are your sugars normal, are you overweight... ...Read more

I had DVT i am on 3 and a half mil of warferin i have lost 1 baby at 6 weeks what blood thinners should i ask my gp to put me on when trying for baby?

DVT's and pregnancy: The amount of Warfarin is a prophylactic dose and is not considered high, and may have nothing to do with a miscarriage. Pregnancy is a strong producer of fibrinogen which can produce blood clotting and may be a cause of miscarriage. Seeing a maternal-fetal medicine expert in a University Hospital setting is indicated when considering and managing what will be considered a "high risk" pregnancy. ...Read more

Sometimes the embryo or fetus dies because of a genetic abnormality. It doesn't mean that you don't have an healthy gene pool. I am glad that your physician has checked you out and found no health issues that would prevent childbearing. ...Read more
