  • im getting really depressed!

    have been bleeding for 6 weeks and this is getting really old! very bright red, HUGE clots, im talking dollar size, dollar bill size clots! every now and then it slows down a little but then another big clot and here we go again. I am 42, got my tubes tied 20 years ago so im not on birth control. I have been on plavix and asprin for over a year but it has never caused problems before. a week ago i stopped taking both pills thinking it might help but it hasnt. I dont have any new stress or anything like that. I would love to go to the doctor but i dont have insurance so no one will see me. What is wrong with me?????

  • be careful

    please be careful if you are bleeding that badly. You can end up with iron deficiencies and many other health problems. Are you experiencing pain with the passing of clots? If you have a chance read my post on abdominal pain, infertility and irregular periods. It may be endometriosis. Just because your tubes are tied doesn't mean your uterus won't shed. you may have to bite the bullet and see a specialist. good luck

    • I agree. This sounds serious enough to get help immediately. The asprin could be the wrong thing with a condition such as this. It could be fibroids and you could be becoming anemic.....I had a condition similar to this before I had my uterus and ovaries out at 47. The clots were terrible and I bled until they had to put me on iron pills for 6 weeks before they could build my blood up and operate. As the above poster said, get help on this.
