I am 30 and for the last 4 months I have been having my period every two weeks and it lasts for 2 weeks as well (some times I have spotting between periods). 

My periods are very heavy and I am passing large blood clots too and experience flooding everytime I experience really bad period pains too.

I went to my GP and had an exam she sent me for a transvaginal scan and I just had a call today saying that she is referring me to a gynocoalogist because they couldn't see the lining of my womb - I'm now worried my GP said it could just be blood clots, could this be anything else I felt she was just trying to put my mind at rest saying it may just be blood clots.

Could it be blood clots, If it is blood clots what does this mean and what do they do?

      Sorry to hear you are having similar issues.

      My GP said I will receive a letter in the next 7 days but not how long I would have to wait to see a Gyno but she was requesting a hysteroscopy too 🙁 I've been looking this up and maybe I should have now.

      it just worries me because I haven't had any issues before this, and when I went for my scan I had just finished my period 3 days prior, so I don't understand where all this blood is coming from or how it could be blood clots.

      Do you have to see a gunk too? Xx

    You get clots when you've got heavy flow. I think you need to get your blood work done. My be due to hormonal imbalance. rolleyes
