In brief: Large clots menstrua

This is not normal.
You should contact your doctor for an appointment for a complete examination to determine the cause of this problem.

How old are you? Have you had children? You are chronically iron deficient causing anemia. Take one Gentle Iron by Solgar with 500mg Ester C each day .between meals. See Gynecologist re: abnormal periods.

In brief: Heavy menstruation

Golf ball size clots and soaking through tampons and pads mean you bleed a lot during menstruation.
After the doctor's evaluation, first test comes to mind is a ultrasound examination.
