  • All the time...but I have an IUD too.

  • I do, but not a lot.
    My tubes are tied and I do not have an IUD.

  • Yes, I did have a small amount. I have worn a panty liner in between periods for years and would notice this for a couple of days before I started my period. I don't have an IUD and don't have my tubes tied. And I wasn't on the pill. I always just felt that it was my body's way of cleaning itself out!
    I'm in the process of going through Menopause. I have maybe two periods a year that are very heavy and clotty. And the hot flashes too!! Maybe it was a preperation for things to come.
