  • Clots can be from the blood pooling and not finding it's way out shall we say. If you are concerned make an appointment. Another thing to think about is if they didn't put you on an iron supplement, you may need to be checked for anemia. Just keep that in mind, if you feel week our sickly make sure to get in to your doctor. I get clots with my period and it drives me nuts. Another rule of thumb they told me is if you soak a pad an hour to go get checked. If you have a hidden clot it could seem like you are soaking a pad quickly until after you pass that clot out of your system then it will seem to let up. Best advise is to check with a doctor if you are unsure. Congrats on the new baby. With my period, the amount of walking or laying down determined the clots I get. Take care.
