This is stress thats doing this, maybe you should seek professional help from both an OBG-YN and a therapist, cuz what affects the mental, affects the physical

no you can go for a few months and be pregnant and still have a period. also if you are on the pill it can give you a faulse negitive and if you are pregnant you can damage your child inutro by being on the pill . best way to find out is a blood test and to talk to your parents about all of this. i know that can be very scary, but that is what they are there for. i was 16 when i had my first child, and did not find out until i was 5 months along. he was born 2 months later and was very under weight and i could have avoided all that if i had the proper care and support but i hid it, so i didn't. i know this sounds stupid at your age but the best thing to do to not get pregnant or have any scares is not to have sex. it only takes one time. i hope all works out for you. take care

Hello Ladies. I have been passing clots for about 5 months now. I noticed them when i first moved back to miami in August. I've always had severe menstrual cycles lasting from 15 to 96 days at a time. I have deen on Depo since i was 13 to help with the bleeding so now my cycles are beyond irregular. Lately i haven't had a mentrual cycle, yet i've been passing clots just about everyday so i've been wearing a pad or tampon just to keep an accident from happening. The weird thing is i'm not having any pains or cramps just passing clots the size of dimes to the size of quarters and i'm worried... Any suggestions???

Um wow, I'm no specialist, but it sounds like you really need to see a doctor.  I know sometimes talking to your parents or care providers about this sort of thing is awful and awkward, but sometimes you just gotta.  Trust me, I once didn't poo for two weeks and thought I was gonna die.  I was too embarrassed to tell my mom until finally I couldn't take it any more and when I did she rushed me to the hospital where I had to get my stomach pumped and supposetories!  How awful is that?!  GO TO THE DOCTOR!

my mom's friend is a doctor what she told me was that your periods doesn't come while you're pregnant and after your baby has been deliver you face periods for at least 4 months All of this happens because of hormones.  And hormones are what regulate your periods.  Often times, such as in my case, post pregnant women experience hormone imbalances, which may lead to irregular periods  in women.

Im 20 and have PCOS, I got my first period in almost a year last week. Its been really heavy (changing tampons every other hour), with awful cramps that have made me pass out and vomit and on top of all that I've been passing what looks like blood clots about the length of my little finger. Ive taken ordinary paracetmol for the pain, but its not working, and Ive been sleeping with a hot water bottle on my tummy which has eased the pain somewhat. I find pressing my fingers to the base of spine helps too, you have to press hard to push at a nerve but its helpful when Im standing around in work, or waiting on the bus and the cramps hit really bad. From what I know as long as the clots are smaller than 3 or 4 fingers together you shouldn't worry too much, its just heavy lining of the uterus that hasn't broken down.

I've recently started having periods that last 3 -4 weeks. Their heavy and there's blood clots. I normally experience blood clots but this is different - thier bigger and more frequent and hurt. I take tablets (tranxiemic and mefenamic acid) for the pain/heavy flow but this seems to do nothing. I'm 19 and i'm not sexually active.

I don't know if it will help you, but ... have you considered going to an acupuncturist and also taking their Chinese medicine. I have been going for period pain relief for only 2 n half months and taking Chinese medicine now n it has made a lessening in the pain during period n have lost some weight i wanted to lose n i thought it worth sharing. Hoping this helps.

I started my period a year ago at 13 and my period was off. I would skip months without having a period
. Then some random day I would just start bleeding. I would never cramp, I was perfectly fine.  My period is pretty much normal now, but now I am bleeding pretty heavy and having quite a few blood clots. I also have pretty bad cramping the first 3 days of my period.  Is this normal for a 14 year old ?

Ever since I started my period when I was 11 years old, I've never had a normal cycle. It would skip 2 or 3 months between periods & I've always been concerned about it. I was never a big goer to my doctor's and now I regret it because I'm not covered anymore. (My insurance was Medi-Cal). This is the first time that I've noticed blood clots in my period & became concerned because as of today, I've been heavily bleeding for 11 days straight with no light days. I'm very concerned about my health and don't know what to do since I have no health insurance. Advice? Help? Please.

I have been doing the same thing for 7 weeks now and still going strong. Of the 7 weeks, 5 have been heavy with blood clots ranging from dime size to like you mentioned, grapefruit size. I have taken many showers to relieve the cramping and many times the largest ones 'fall out' then. I have been to my gyno. who just wanted me to double my birth control pills for 7 days. That didn't work and I had to go to the ER because to constant cramping pain was getting so bad. After tons of blood work and other checks. I am anemic, obviously, but everything according to the ER Dr. was normal. How is this normal? He had me triple my birth control pills and gave me hydrocodone for the pain. I can't even work because of this. I tried to once and thank goodness I took several extra pairs of clothes because I bled through 3 times within an 8 hr shift. I can go through a super size tampon and thick maxi pad within 30 minutes on some days and I never know when. I'm only 29 and have one child. I would like to have another, but at this point I am really contemplating going ahead and getting it all removed.

Your period might take several years to settle into a regular pattern. If you're really concerned, talk to a doctor or health worker.

I am 47 and I have some small fibroids and has suffered from heavy periods every since I got my tubes tied in my early twenties. I have also suffered from anemia off and on for years. Last year in May I had a Mirena Low dosage IUD put in. Periods were very irregular and short or long. But what was very strange is my periods have been heavier then usual for the last few months. It's was very odd this month. I used to have bad cramps but not the time before this one. I didn't have to take my Prēmsyn. It was a normal period finally. But then my period came again within two weeks of me having it already. No pain but this morning I got up and sat on the toilet and this big clot came out. Then I stood up to wash myself and this other big clot came out it looked like a cut of liver. I had never seen a anything like it. They may be just normal for me because they usually just be in the toilet when I use the bathroom.  But since I was standing up and it came out it got my attention. Has anyone else experienced this? I am not in any pain at all.

Hi I am writing concerning my 14 yr old daughter. she started menstraighting at 12. Her periods started to become heavy with a lot of cramping. I took her to our ob and she did an ultrasound and bloodwork (about a year ago) bc i was concerned about the heavy bleeding /cramping. She said everything was fine. About 4 months ago she started necon 7/7/7 birth control for severe acne and we thought it would help her periods too but it didn't.  She still cramps  about 3 out of 4weeks a month & when she starts her pd  she clots the entire time and some r definitely  bigger than a Quarter. In addition, her cramps are so bad she is always in bed with a heating pad, she's extremely pale, and so tired she can't go w/o taking a nap during the day. I voiced my concern to doc about this and the possibility of being anemic but she said everything is ok. This really doesn't sound ok to me and I could use some opinions on what to do from here. I don't want an undiagnosed condition to go unnoticed that will compromise her ability to have children some day. I'm looking for a new doc at the moment but trying to find a female ob in my area is proving to be next to impossible.  UGH! So any ideas or opinions would be so appreciated. Thanks!!

Clotting can be perfectly normal when on a period. But if it has you bed ridden for days sonething is wrong. You should definitely try different products like the diva cup instead of tampons which could help you get a good look at what your period is consisting of. But most important find a doctor that will listen to you. There are lots of Dr that just pass women's issues off and don't try to find out what the real issue is. They use to lock us up in sanatoriums because they  didn't know what to do! Now it seems they just look at us and smile and say it's normal. Don't let them ignore you and your daughter keep looking for answers.

I've been doing this for 8 days and about 3+ grapefruit/baseball size clots a day. I went in 6 days ago and I was slightly anemic at 10.5 normal was 11.5. They gave me progestrone but it's not working after 4 pills. No one will listen to me and seem to act like it's no big deal.
