Period Large Clots
Heavy period: See you Ob/gyn and they can determine whether you need further management for this. Sometimes it can be managed with medicines or sometimes you may need a dilation and curettage of the uterus to reduce the thickness of the uterine lining. Your ob can sort all of this out. It is a fairly common problem of women in your age group. You are not alone. Good luck and feel better. ...Read more

Call your GYN: I don't have your risk factors for endometrial hyperplasia or ca, but usually bleeding like you're describing, warrants a quick hemoglobin check to make sure you're not at risk from severe anemia. If your HGB is good, it can wait for a regular appointment. If you have symptoms such as feeling faint, jittery, light-headed, or racing pulse-you might be sent to the nearest er. So, call your gyn now. ...Read more

Pain in low rt groin near where meets my leg. Pain started after intercourse w/my husband 6 days ago. Now have my period with large clots. Is it cance?
That: That is abnormal. Heavy clotting during a period can be caused by dysfunctional uterine bleeding, where basically there is a hormonal imbalance caused by a variety of things including stress on the body, other factors, or even weight changes (too high or too low); if there is any chance a patient could have been pregnant then heavy clotting can represent a miscarriage; or it can be caused by changes in the uterus or cervix. I don't know your age or other issues about you. If this continues, if you think you could have been pregnant, or if you have light-headedness/fainting then you will have to be seen by your doctor immediately. Also please be sure that your pap smear is up to date. ...Read more

do a home pregnancy test. if negative, good.

Deep pain with sex for 2 years and abdominal pain diarrhea vomiting during ovulation/period. Pass large clots. All GI tests normal. Hysterectomy?
MY OPINION ONLY:
You are MUCH too YOUNG for a hysterectomy! Find a GYN Specialist who specializes in DYSPAREUNIA (pain with intercourse) Your heavy bleeding is also treatable often with Birth Control Pills for a few cycles!
Ask you present GYN for a referral. He/she SHOULD know of a colleague with interest in YOUR Problem. IF NOT seek out another Gynecologist
Hope this helps!
