| | Endometriosis and Clots
I am 21 years old and was diagnosed with endometriosis almost 6 years ago. Four years ago, during my menses, I had a large blood clot; about 2" by 4". I called the emergency room and they told me not to worry about it, that all women clot.
But then about 8 months ago, I had another large clot. I called emergency and they, again, told me not to worry about it. Today, I had another large clot, about 2.5" in diameter with white tissue in the middle, and a hard spot about 1/2 centimeter wide and 1 centimeter long. I went to the doctor (Urgent Care) and showed them this. Their reaction made me feel like it was kind of a big deal. They ran blood tests; my hematocrit was fine (on the high end, actually) my white blood cells normal and the pregnancy test came back negative. They have now told me to see my gyno, but I am just wondering if this is something I have to look forward to all of the time now, since I have had quite a bit of clotting over the last year and the two especially large clots?
Is this worth seeing my gyno over?
Everything I have read states that "Oh that happened to me this one time, it's normal"
Well it is not.
Please, any info would be helpful.
