Is this normal. Maybe tmi for some ladies :)

I had a few (seemed like very big to me) blod clots during my period. I have never had them before and my period is very painful this time. Is this normal? Do you ladies have blog clots when you get your period? (the clots are maybe as big as 4 quarters put together)

  • Passing the clots was probably why it was more painful.

  • I almost always have them, but just for a day or two when the period is heaviest and also most painful, and I find that ibuprofine works best on the pain. Mine are only the size of 1 quarter, though.

  • Nope, I'm not use to having clots at all, except for right after I give birth. I'd say that quarter size is normal though, but as large are your describing, I'd be worried. You may be having a miscarriage or there could be other facts you may want to ask your dr about.

  • I can't be having a miscarriage cause I wasn't pregnant.

    Thank you for all your answers ladies
