Hi doctor,

I am having a lot of clotting bigger than quarter size back to back, filling my tampon or pad in less than an hour. I am not on any medications and there is no bad medical history.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

If this is the first time that you are experiencing excessive bleeding and clots are being passed, then you can opt for antifibrinolytics for controlling the bleeding presently. You can choose for an ultrasound pelvis once the bleeding stops to look for an organic cause.

A single episode can be more likely to be due to stress-induced hormonal imbalances. You may maintain a menstrual calendar for the next three months and see if the pattern persists. If it does, you may be required to be placed on oral contraceptive pills for at least three months to control such menorrhagic episodes.
