    Blood clots

    I am 50 yrs old, and I haven't had any menopause symptoms. But lately when I have a period it is very irregular. It might be 1 light day or like this time, really heavy and I'm continuously passing blood clots from golf ball size to soft ball size. I have spent up to 30 mins waiting for them to stop so I can leave the bathroom. What causes this? It has me worried.

    RE: Blood clots

    Sounds like you might have fibroids. If you have, they are not going to go away on thir own. However, the good news is that there is a whole battery of potential treatments. Make an appointment with your gyno to discuss your blood clots and see what s/he recommends.

    Above all, don't worry! Fibroids are generally benign (just darn annoying!).
