I have been off my period for 3 days now. No bleeding , no spotting, nothing....and this is where it gets kind of gross....I'm standing up and I feel like I may have just wet myself. When I get to the bathroom there is a quarter size clot in my underwear. Should I be freaking out?

  • Sounds like your uterus retained some of the lining it should've shed and it just now came out. I wouldn't worry too much about it. But if you are worried, call your gyne and get checked out.

  • I get that on occasion. Because the lining can be thicker in places, its seems like a chunk comes out instead of just fluid. I'd only freak out if it hurts, and for me, its only ever hurt like cramps after finding clots during the regular cycle. I have had the clots come early show up just after.

  • Hmm...I would call your dr about it just to be sure it's ok. Sounds like you had a clot that wouldn't pass with your period and it blocked the flow off. That could cause problems if it hadn't come out. Are your periods normally this short as well?

  • i use to get those and they would be about dime size to quarter size when i would get my period. i hated that. but now i'm on depo so i don't get that anymore. maybe talk to your doctor and see.
