Why am I peeing out blood clots on my period? Passing blood clots during your menstrual cycle is often a normal occurrence during the heaviest days of your period. In fact, most women experience clots at some point in their lives; however, heavy bleeding and passing large clots can sometimes be a cause for concern.
When should I be concerned about blood clots in my period? If you need to change your tampon or pad after less than 2 hours or you pass clots the size of a quarter or larger, that is heavy bleeding. If you have this type of bleeding, you should see a doctor. Untreated heavy or prolonged bleeding can stop you from living your life to the fullest.
When are period clots too big? Abnormal clots are larger than a quarter in size and occur more frequently. See your doctor if you have heavy menstrual bleeding or you have clots larger than a quarter. Menstrual bleeding is considered heavy if you change your tampon or menstrual pad every two hours or less, for several hours.
How Big Should period clots be? One sign of an abnormal blood clot is that it is the size of a quarter or larger. (Normal period blood clots are about the size of a dime.)
