    Probably I'm on rivaraxaban and have been for a year. They are really heavy very similar to when you have had a baby. Keep an eye on iron levels and if tired or run down get blood test from doc.

      I have had bariatric surgery and the surest sign if we are low on iron is we start craving and eating ice. Almost all the time chewing ice. Otherwise a blood test.

    being a bloke, i would be true to myself, use the internet or give into food cravings, handwash & spin dry clothes and eat full fat room temp Brussels paté or multivit & mineral supplement and plenty of dark green veg - preferbly grown by ex at allotment with chicken poop fertilisers

    Yes, sweetie, it's normal. That being said, you need to take supplemental iron or you will become anemic and end up in the hospital with a transfusion. Also, if you go see your gyn, they can do either an ablation to stop your periods or put in a progesterone iud, which also stop your periods. The difference is like day and night!! .

    It has subsided back to normal i think. It was like that the first 2 days. But only a couple small clots the last day.
