  • I started bleeding more clots in my late 30's. They put me on progestron for 3 months and that helped for about a year. When I was 43 it was out of control and I had a procedure to scrape my uterus (some big fancy name, like endomitrial ablation or something). The result was no more periods....that was 6 years ago....woohoo....

  • I have that too. I'm almost 31. My tubes are tied. I get light headed and weak, I'm usually in bed the first day of my period.

  • I will be 44 in a few days and I have noticed more clots in the last 2-3 years. It doesn't really bother mne but I have found that i I use tampons I get serious cramps because of the clots and as soon as I take the tampon out and everything "slear out" then I am fine.
