yesterday evening, second day into my period, i started gushing blood for no apparent reason. this was going on for like 2 hours. i also had like 3 huge clots come out of me. so nasty, ugh! i was so scared, i thought i would bleed to death! after about 2 1/2 hours, the bleeding subsided and today, i am okay. i just wanted to know if that was something serious, or is it normal to gush blood at times. i am using the NUVARING vaginal contraceptive ring device and maybe it has something to do with that, does anyone know??? i am 24 and i smoke, i had a miscarriage in december of 2004, just a few months ago. i have three living kids and i have had 3 abortions. i also have a bicornuate uterus. somebody please help!!!!
