Really gross pic. Seriously. Don't complain...I warned you

So... I just wiped this and about 5 more just like it. I rarely have periods but when I do I've never had anything this bad. Small clots...sure. But not huge chunks. I take pregnancy tests at the first of every month since I don't have period. I like to make sure I'm not doing anything questionable to my body if I do by chance become pregnant. The test on the first of this month was negative. But... Is it possible I've miscarried?? I've been having horrible cramps all day.

That's basically how my periods are now that I am on Mirena... There's not much fluid blood but I get lots of small and big clots. Weird but true.

No way in hell thats normal. I've had a period for 22 years and never seen that.
Except the lochia after the baby's born.

This looks pretty normal, however it's even more common with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). You should have your doctor test you for it. Some signs of PCOS are: abnormal or absence periods, Ovarian cysts, heavy cramping, heavy bleeding, clots, excessive hair growth, weight gain especially around the belly area, elevated blood pressure, Insulin resistance, and higher risk for stroke, diabetes and heart attack. This is all due to high testosterone in a female's body.

I had an ovarian cyst at 23, and since then my periods have always had clots in them.
