Yes: If you are seeing large quantities of blood and blood clots you should go to the emergency room. The color of the blood suggests bleeding from the kidney area as long as you're sure it's not vaginal bleeding. Large clots can occasionally block the bladder outlet and block urination. Kidney stones, tumors, glomerular inflammation need to be ruled out. ...Read more

Am on the pill + tegretol. Have 12 days til next period but have old blood spotting and brighter red blood clots too, not large. Just had colonoscopy?

Tegretol: Low platelets from tegretol due to bone marrow supression can occur (rarely). This can lead to bleeding. (i order CBC to check rbc WBC and platelet counts periodically on my patients who take tegretol) also there is an increased risk of birth control failure with tegretol use. Or the breakthrough bleeding may be totally unrelated. See your doctor and get examined. You might want to get a CBC too. ...Read more
