I was getting clots much bigger than that on my regular monthly cycles before undergoing endo treatments. So it wouldn't be a shock to me now, but when it 1st happened it sure was a weird and scary sensation.

It got so bad I was checked out for fibroids - scans showed nothing at all. It was a couple of years later that I got my big op and raging endo was discovered and no fibroids at all.

It's just sometimes how the lining of the uterus tears away from the walls. As you get older it can come away in clots or clumps like that. It's like having a miscarriage, as you can feel them as they descend and expel out of the body. Not nice at all, but not necessarily related to the prostap. I had mine for many years getting bigger as time went on and long before drugs and surgery.


I agree with impatient - I'm a clotter and quite used to it. To be honest, I have been having big clots since I first started at 13 and it is horrible. I think you should mention it to the gyne, but don't think it's prostap related. Sometimes they will suggest taking low dose norerthisterone to help lessen bleeding, especially is tranexamic and mefanamic acid doesn't help.

Good luck with your appointment and hope you feel better soon x
