I had my son a month ago. Is it normal that i have a diffrent color blood clot?

So past 4 days ive been gettin really huge blood clots.. Now the past 2 days they are getting smaller..But most are red, but has a whiteish color to it too. It looks like the "tissue" from in your body. While it also looks like something diffrent.. But idk. NEVER had i had this color of a blood clot even b4 I was pregnant and had my periods. Is this normal?

  • It is normal for the color of the blood to change as your body heals. Although I don't think your supposed to have big clots like bigger than a golf ball. Call your ob. if your concerned.

  • Its perfectly normal and since the clots are getting smaller I wouldn't worry. As for the white is it like a discharge? After I had my son I noticed the bloody clots would mix with a white discharge I know nasty. If you are really worried go to your ob/gyn. I hope this helped.

  • My doctor told me that if I was passing blood clots the size of (or bigger) than a half dollar that I needed to be seen again, because it means that something is not healing. At a month you should be having a much lighter discharge (still a little bloody, but old blood, not new, and no more clots).

    I would call your doctor and ask about it, just to be safe.
