was it a regular color? or what is different than just redish?

This can be several things.
1. just a large clot
2. a sign of a misscarriage
3. tissue from rough sex.

or im sure several other things

I've always been told that if you have a clot toonie sized or larger it's a concern.

I used to always have big clots during my period and would pretty much sit in the bathtub because I bled so much.  One day I went to the ER for it.  They took my bloowork and came back and said my thyroid messed up and that I had hypothyroidism.  Since I have been taking my thyroid medicine, my bleeding has slowed immensely.  So you might want to ask about that.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated thanks nicole
