Hi, I am kind of freaked out and found this site. I just went to the bathroom to urinate and was in deep shock to see my toilet tissue covered in fresh red blood and felt like I was back on my period days. This was not just a drop in the tissue. The tissue was saturated. Just in shock! I looked back in the toilet bowl and saw the size of a quarter a thick amount of a blood clot. No bloody toilet bowl, just a little bit. I was able to wipe and no more blood flow. Here is stuff about me. I have never had children, no pregnancies and divorced 15 years ago. I have only had 3 partners in total life. Last time sex with a partner was July 2017. I will say it was very painful for me. Even though menopause has passed, I still have all full desires and nothing has changed. I take care of myself about 3 to 5 times a week as I still have all desires to do so. I have read up on what this could be, not sure if this is thinning of the walls as I keep myself active and to avoid atrophy. I have a very busy career and manage almost 100 staff and my career consumes me. I intend to retire after 60 years old. I am freaked out by what this was today. Is this some sign of cancer? Or is this atrophy of the vaginal walls? Is this an endometrioma clot? I should mention that benign clots run on my mom's side of the family. My mom and her 2 sisters have all had very large benign clots removed from their uterus. I believe this occurred when they were in their 60's. I will say that I have a condition in my right hip called piriformis and so I always have sciatica down my leg and my buttocks. I had just been lying down with my heat pad for my hip and had fallen asleep. I use my heat pad all the time and this clot was a first. I do have unusual tiredness but, this could be due to my diabetes that I acquired in 2014. My history of my health is in my background section of my profile. My midsection is always bloated and I do have a linear hernia and it is being monitored. I am disclosing all this just in case this is needed for the discussion. I am guilty in late of getting a pap smear. Guilty! The last one was 3 years ago. I will be making an appt. right now, however, was looking for peace of mind and anyone to help me stop freaking out right now. thank you for your time.
