I’m just curious as to what this means. Is it a problem/bad sign if you have a lot, or is it normal? I always have some and I thought it was normal but now I’m not so sure. Thanks Girls – sorry for the Too Much Information 😉

I’m not completely sure about the answer, but I get them too but not every month. I did not get them as often when I was on BC.

I hope they’re not a bad sign. I get LOTS of them, every month. Looking forward to hearing some answers – hope someone has some insight.

I was just wondering about this too as I am having a few issues too… I used to get them when I was younger but haven’t in maybe about 10 years until a few days ago, I know I wasn’t miscarrying as only a week ago I’d had a PT at the Dr (I get them every 3 months before my depo) and it was negative. So hmmmm I am thinking it is normal? Just a heavy month? Hehe I hope so…

I have read that they are normal as long as they are small, like dime size or smaller. I get them too, and have often wondered myself.

I believe this is normal, especially on your heaviest days of your period. If they are larger than a quarter, I would go call your doctor. I know I shouldn’t rely on WebMD, but I also remember asking my doctor about this, and she said it’s nothing to worry about.
Happy reading…just what you love to read about, right? 🙂

I have a ton too and have talked to my MD about it. He said as long as they aren’t larger then a golf ball it is fine. My periods are also really heavy the first couple days (like go through super tampons in an hour kind of crazy)

Blood clots are normal. Only if they are large- larger than a golf ball or if your bleeding is excessiveto the point of feeling light-headed or dizzy do you normally need to seek medical attention.

I get them depending on the heaviness of my previous period. If it’s been a while (irregular cycles) and they were light before, my next one ususally has more blood, and more clots. If I’ve had a heavy, and regular cycle, I don’t have them. 🙂

I get golf size ball ones regularly with severe pain.. Idk I’ve never been to a doctor about it.

my periods only last 3 days and day 2 is a heavy day for me and its normal for me to have them – ive been told that the body is suppose to break them up but as i have a short period/heavy day my body doesnt have time to process it but its all ok

My periods generally last 1.5-2.5 days and I have tons of clots – I contribute most of my problem to my Endo. But, since I have heavy bleeding that is condensed into such a short time frame that’s the main issue.
I’ve done a lot of research and talked to my doctor who said everything was fine as long as the clots are under the size of a quarter.

Thanks for all the info and insight – I think that mine are ok due to the fact that they are more, Too Much Information, stringy than actual ball shaped and they are never bigger than a dime. Thanks again – that put my mind at ease!
