Menstrual Issues

I am a 37 year old female and for the last 12-18 months I have had more and more blood clots during my period. Many of the clots are rather large equal to a silver dollar. Also my cramps have gotten much worse and my menstrual flow much heavier. All opinions are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Have you been checked for fibroids? They can cause heavy bleeding (I would go through a super plus tampon in 90 minutes).

I agree. My fibroids appeared at age 35 and caused this kind of problem. Please see a doctor about getting checked out because the situation will only get worse.
