Afraid it is menopause!!!

I am 40 years old black female. I don't know what is wrong with me. My period  came on last week on Tues. and ended on Sun. It was a normal cycle as it has been for the past twenty years or so. The problem arose this Monday when I began to pass large clots of blood. The clots range in size from a quarter to the size of an apple. I don't know what is causing this. I don't take birth control meds. I have been taken vitamin E 1500 a day. What could be causing this to happen? My boyfriend and I are trying to have a child and I am afraid that because of this I will not be able to get pregnant. Any information would be appreciated.

If the clots are as big as apples I would go to the er because you could be hemorrhaging, also could be endometriosis. Better to be safe than sorry.

Hi fugly1,
I agree with ipnmama. If the clots are as big as apples, in my opinion,
I would seek immediate medical attention. You could be hemorrhaging
and it could be endometriosis. Normally I would recommend making
a doctor's appointment, but I would say have someone bring you to
the nearest ER to be seen as soon as possible. The best of luck to you.
