    Menopause and vaginal blood clots

    Hello, I'm 44 yrs old and have not had a period for over five years.  For the past year and a half, I have been passing small to large blood clots every day, numerous times a day.  Sometimes I will go a day or two with only a few clots.  After I pass the clots I bleed very very heavily for a few minutes and then, it's as if nothing happened.  I have gained a substantial amount of weight in my abdomen, I look like I am nine months pregnant and am asked all the time "when are you due".   I have been house bound for the past year because every where I go, I pass clots and bleed everywhere.   My sister & I recently flew to go see our father because he was ill, and it was a fiasco!  I bled on the plane seat, all over our rental car.....I couldn't control the clots.  Last year I seen my gyno, who did an endometrial biopsy but the PA. had a very hard time getting a good sample because my uteris wouldn't open or dialate with medication.  She got a small sample after I was screaming in pain.  It came back negative, they said I had nothing to worry about and it would go away on it's own.  This was last year......I can't get anyone to help me and I can't stand being confined to my house anymore.   It's effecting my life in so many ways!  I am extremely fatigued,  my abdomen is huge and the clots are getting worse.  I've tried using pads but the clots are to big to be absorbed, l can't use tampons because I'm not able to insert them anymore.  I've ruined all of my clothes, stained our couch.....  I can't take this anymore but I don't know who I can go too for help.

    You need to be seen by a Gynecologist NOW and hope that this bleeding and swollen abdomen does not (heaven forbid) represent serious tumor issues from this having gone on so long.
