You may want to check with your ob/gyn. It sounds like you may have a fibroid(s). I'm not trying to scare you but it sounds like the same systoms I had and I was diagnosed with fibroids.

Re: Periods and blood clots..

I suffered from heavy bleeding and HUGE clotting for several years. It seemed to get worse after the birth of my child. For the past 5 years it was so bad I was incapacitated for 2 days of my period having to stay really close to home due to flooding and "accidents" every time I stood up. I went to 2 different OB/GYNs, had a D&C and all of the other usual tests, etc. to find no fibroids, polyps or anything to cause it. Finally I heard about ENDOMETRIAL THERMAL ABLATION. I talked with my dr. and she did not perform the procedure, but recommended that I was a good candidate. What it does is "burn" the lining of the uterous. The result is a "normal" period or no period at all. You may want to look into it. There is a great discussion forum on it. Search for Endometrial Ablation Discussion forum in Yahoo or your search engine. I don't remember the exact link. Hope this helps.

P.S. I had ThermaChoice ablation 10/25/02 and am now at the beginning of my 2nd post op period. So far only spotting. It has been GREAT!

Re: Periods and blood clots..

Yes it is. Before I had my ablasion I was passing clots the size of softballs. They tried the pill and everything to stop the bleeding. They never found a cause for mine it wasnt fibroids or anything I had a biopsy for uterine cancer and it was Neg. Sometimes the body does weird stuff I would check with your obgyn though just to be safe and to get some relief.

Re: Periods and blood clots..

wow, that would have been nice to have 10 years ago!

my mother had a partial hysterectomy because of heavy and constant periods, she even had a D&C and menstruated within 3 weeks after the D&C, the doctor didn't believe her!
