    Heavy menstrual with huge black blood clots coming out, scary
    USA28 posted:
    Hello, I am 28 year olds (never have sex) so that rule out any pregnancy related.

    For the past one year, I did not get my menstrual. I believe it was related to me extreme stress (maybe hormone changes) because during that one year, my family member died, I lost my job, our family have to move. Make it short, that one year was so many unhappy things going on my life, I totally break down. I did not even have time to worried about my menstrual, so I just let it stop for one year and didn't pay any attention.
    I don't know if this related to menopause (since at age 28) I hope I'm not going on menopause.
    This month, a year later, now I am getting my menstrual back. What I'm worried is since it coming back for the past 2 days, it been very heavy, I am passing huge black color blood clots (large one, very large). I do have blood clots but never I see this large before during my cycles in the past.

    I'm definately bleeding heavy, soak my pad and I run to the toilet, I can see the blood clot dropping out in the toilet. It scary!
    Should I just wait couple more days and see? I really don't want to go to hospital, since I don't have health insurance to afford.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm just worried seeing the large blood clots.

    Since you haven't had your period in a year, the lining of your uterus built up quite thick and is now shedding. I'm not surprised you're bleeding heavy with large clots which are actually uterine lining.

    If you're extra worried, you can see your doctor.

    Is there a free clinic or Planed Parenthood you can go to?

    I think the ER would see you without insurance.
