Blood clot or miscarriage

Posted , 8 users are following.

please help im sending myself crazy - i have been getting pains/cramps for about four days now. i started my period yesterday after being on the pill and skipping when it should have been. A week in i decided to stop and get my period because i was getting these cramps. I was in the shower today and felt something hit my foot. It was what i thought was a blood clot from my period but it was larger than i have ever gotten before. Length of my index finger and kind of triangle shape when stretched out with one end looking like a tube opening (see photos). I have had this dread in my stomach for four weeks that i may have been pregnant. I never did a test as i was scared (im not with the guy) and i have been told i only have a 50/50 chance of getting pregnant due to other reasons but now this has happened im not sure if it is just a build up of tissue from going back on the pill, skipping period etc or i have had a chemical pregnancy. Any advice would be great because im scared to tell or ask anyone i know. TIA x

    If you have more clots like that I would go see a doctor. When I had a miscarriage my clots were much bigger and I had a lot of bleeding but if you are really scared and worried you might want to check with your doctor.

      I also had a baby at 26 weeks with placenta abruption. I had to have emergency surgery because I was having uncontolled bleeding. I just suggest if she keeps having this to see a doctor. Its not normal to have clots that size.

    oh my god thank you so much for sharing this!! I had the identical situation happen to me today just now. on my birthday SMH. but same thing, skipped periods, decided to let myself have one and a few days in, boom. clot that looks almost exactly like yours. same size and all. absolutely insane but seeing your story made me feel so much better. super odd as it's not the first time I've skipped but it makes sense I suppose!
