My husband and I have been trying to conceive for two years now. My periods have always been very regular, but the last three months they have changed. I have about 3 days of very light spotting, then the next 36 hours it is very heavy, lots of cramping and clots. I have had some clots before, but not like this. Are clots normal or should I be concerned?
Your periods will change over the course of your premenopausal life. This may be a normal transition at whatever age you are (you didn't say), but ANY change should be reported to your health care provider to rule out polyps, precancerous changes, fibroids, hormonal problems—things like that. It's probably nothing, but let your doctor make sure.
