Image: Pregnancy tests were negative, but I passed blood clots.  What could it be?

Hello doctor,

My period usually comes on the 6th every month, but I did not get my periods of this month. In fact, I forgot it because I did not have any usual cramps like I would. I started feeling weird and having a few pregnancy like symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, headaches and my nose started to get sensitive. A few days passed and I still had no cramps or period. I took two pregnancy tests and they were negative. I went to my gynecologist and had one more pregnancy test. That too came back as negative. I did have problem of UTI and I am now getting treatment for that. I started spotting a day after and the blood went from brown to bright pink to red. Then it started getting heavier, but no cramps. Then I went to the bathroom and a blood clot passed through my urine and the toilet bowl filled with blood. I do not really have the pregnancy symptoms as much as I did before, but what could this be?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As the pregnancy tests were negative even after eight days post missed menses, it ensures that you are not pregnant.

The symptoms you had were common PMS symptoms (premenstrual syndrome), which subsides slowly once the menses start.

There is a possibility that a large endometrial chunk would have got passed out during the start of the flow due to delayed menses this time. So, just allow the menses to continue and you should be fine.

The chunk was definitely not a gestational sac or pregnancy, as the pregnancy tests were negative.
