TMI. A question about your monthly gift adult content

Is it normal to get blood clots during your period? I've always had them and just found out that its a symptom of a disease so I was wondering if its normal.

  • As far as I know the clots are just part of the normal process of the uterus shedding its lining. Just like you I have always had the clots too, I just hope that you and I are both normal and its nothing to worry about.

  • Yep, that's normal as long as the clots aren't enormous. Enormous clots could indicate an issue, endometriosis springs to mind as a possible issue associated with large blood clots during menstruation.

  • I get them all the time. I recently went in for blood work due to being tired all the time and was told that I'm anemic because of my heavy periods. So just an fyi in case you are feeling tired and can't figure out why:)

  • I do have endometriosis, and no its not a symptom, it is however a symptoms of Adenomyosis, which I think I may have also
