Passing a blood clot without having my period?
An_196023 posted:
I passed a blood clot this morning, thinking that I was getting my period a couple weeks early but never had any form of bleeding after that. Is this something I need to be concerned about?
Jane Harrison Hohner, RN, RNP responded:
Dear Anon: Gosh you didn't mention your age, or if you are using any type of hormones or not. A blood clot could come from inside the uterus if there is bleeding from hormones or even heavy spotting due to the estrogen spike that happens midcycle (ovulation-related). Even a molar pregnancy can prompt passage of grape like tissue/clots.

If more clots or erratic bleeding continues/escalates then you should contact your GYN or clinic. There are MANY reasons why someone would suddenly begin to bleed--a lot depends upon your age and GYN history.

In Apology,
