Well I've had a heavy & painful period for a long time & it was irregular for awhile as well to where I"d bleed in between periods for another whole week so I was put on birth control but that only worked for 3 or 4 months and then the pain came back and it was awful. And then the last 2 periods have been severely heavy & very very painful. And yesterday I passed a Huge Blood Clot as round as my fist...I've been planning on having a hysterectomy due to a fibroid tumor that was found on my uterus on an ultrasound was gonna have it this month but I have severe anemia due to this & other causes so I had to put it off until I've gotten my anemia under control but this is probably just gonna make it worse.
I'm gonna be scheduling the hysterectomy for January or February but am wondering if maybe I should call my doctor sooner to talk to him about my periods. And what would cause me to pass a clot as round as my fist?
