  • It's normal for me. Some months I see more than others. I always assume they are clots?

  • Blood clots, depending on the size my OBGYN says they can be normal. If they are super large then call your Doctor, because they could be something wrong.

  • They're just blood clots. They're gross and yucky and annoying, but totally normal =]

  • I would have thought that its the lining of the uterus that the body is flushing away because it was not being used in pregnancy or known as a period... Some experience more then others. If its really bad or painful talk to your OB and see what they say. But its normal as far as I know :)

  • I've had heavy periods all my life and clotting, for me it's totally normal, but if you're really concerned (or if it's causing you pain) it can't hurt to ask your Dr. either.
