Started bleeding really heavy and passing large clots


Q: Started bleeding really heavy and passing large clots. My normal period ended last week. Should I be concerned?

Symptoms:  Heavy bleeding and large clots already had a normal period last week

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
Having excessive bleeding with passage of clots in between periods is somewhat abnormal and is called metrorrhagia.
It can occur due to many causes like uterine causes like fibroids, adenomyosis, endometrial abnormalities, gonadal hormonal imbalance, thyroid hormonal abnormalities etc.
Please rule out pregnancy and miscarriage if there is possibility.
As you are having heavy bleeding associated with clots, better to get evaluated.
Please do consult your doctor, get examined and go for investigations like ultrasound, gonadal hormonal profile, thyroid hormonal profile, complete blood picture etc.
With this workup the possible cause of your problem can be identified and treated.

Take care.
