ever since i stopped breast feeding and my period came back i have had light clotting during my period is this normal or should i be concerned and does any one else have this problem what to do? there is no odor or anything like that
I stopped breast feeding about a week ago and I too noticed the light clotting. I also had an IUD put in not too long ago and my period has been non-stop ever since. I wouldn't worry to much unless the clotting is bigger than the size of a golf ball... If you're really concerned though I would suggest seeing a doctor.
Having small blood clots with periods is normal for some women unfortunately. Also, whilst you are breast feeding, hormones are released to stimulate your production of breast milk and as far as I am aware, this hormone can have an anti-coagulant effect, so once you stop breast feeding, the clots can return.
