Where do blood clots come from? I always wondered that, I'm on my period now and just changed my pad and it had some blood blots on it. Why does this happen?

Where do blood clots come from? I always wondered that, I'm on my period now and just changed my pad and it had some blood blots on it. Why does this happen?

Blood should clot: Blood is meant to clot. Some people have bleeding problems because they can't clot their blood. The vagina is elastic and can hold a lot of blood. If it collects for a while like when you are sitting or laying down, it will have time to form clots. When you get up or bear down like when in the bathroom this can force the clots out. Can be alarming but is normal. ...Read more

Period aberration: Since this is not your usual "period", wait and see if this pattern continues. If it does, see a GYN MD for assessment. Sometimes Mother Nature throws in a "change of pace" with menstrual cycles, then reverts back to her regular on time arrivals.. ...Read more

Period 7 days early really heavy with clotting. I never have heavy periods. Should I be concerned?

Period 7 days early really heavy with clotting. I never have heavy periods. Should I be concerned?

Yes: A very heavy period with passage of clots can be concerning. Sometimes it's a normal hormonal fluctuation, other times it can mean you have a polyp or fibroid in the uterus. Rarely it's a sign of pre-cancer of the uterus. I would see your doctor and describe how many days you bled and how frequently changed pad/tampon. They may order an ultrasound or biopsy. Good luck! ...Read more

Hi, my period came early and only lasted a few days. It was extremely heavy at first and really painful with large clots. I also had a slight fever.?

Menstrual flow: Hard to say what this is, but possible was a spontaneous abortion (could you have gotten pregnant?). You do not say what you consider a fever, but that would be unusual. Would wait and see what happens. If you continue bleeding it might be a good idea to see your doctor. Best wishes. ...Read more

My period was a week early, very heavy, blood clots and gushing. It lasted 9 days. Next period came 2 weeks late. Neg preg tests.

Abnormal periods: We would want to rule out a miscarriage at the time of the first abnormal period. When did you do the pregnancy test? If it was after the first period by many days and it was a miscarriage, the HCG levels might have declined to detectable levels. Consult with your GYN if the periods remain abnormal. ...Read more

I'm on birth control, my period came three days early this month, its mostly dark brown clots the size of a quarter, sometimes small pieces? Why?

Breakthrough bleed: Sounds like breakthrough bleeding which occurs when you have bleeding at unscheduled times while on the pill. Brown is simply old blood that has been sitting at the back of the vagina. Often things get back to normal the next cycle. If not then schedule a visit to discuss changing brands or changing birth control methods. This is very common. Other than being annoying it is not dangerous. ...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

It happens sometimes: Many women have occasional variation of their mucus discharge, some spotting between periods, a heavier period, a lighter period, a longer or shorter period, or even a missed period. Having one or two of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean there is a medical problem, but a visit to one’s primary care or ob-gyn doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. ...Read more

My period came 5 days early, started off brown spotting and then the next day it was pink and then hours later passing golf ball sized blood clots?

Unclear question: Passing clots is generally an indication of excessive blood loss. If you pass clots regularly, you should take oral iron and multivitamin supplement to prevent anemia. It would be prudent to discuss it with your doctor at the next visit. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine ...Read more

Prolactinoma?: Hi. Why are you being treated with bromocriptine? I must assume for a prolactinoma, but it would be better not to guess. Prolactinomas often cause amenorrhea, and bromocriptine can restore periods...but usually not after only 3 days of treatment. If you are dizzy and/or have a fast heart rate, go to the ER. Otherwise, see your gynecologist. Good luck! ...Read more

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more
