passed large clot
An_258153 posted:
I am 57 years old and still having periods. Even though i wasn't on my period last week i had been feeling "nauseous, crampy and funky" as i always do before my period. I had not started my period yet but had a terrible cramp and felt a strange feeling in my lower stomach. I went immediately to the bathroom and when i thought what i felt was the urge to urinate a huge blood clot came out. After that, no more cramping. I spotted a little bit after that but that was the end of it. Now tonight out of nowhere with no warning like i usually have , i started. What could that be?

Any possibility of a miscarriage?

No, I don't think so. My husband is terminally ill with respiratory failure so we aren't very sexually active. We had sex one time last month. I know that's all it takes and i guess it would be possible but i really don't think so.

I still have very heavy flow and am passing generously sized clots but no cramping or pain

Please contact your gynecologists office first thing Monday morning regarding this abnormal vaginal bleeding.
