I have clots every month.

Many women have extraordinarily heavy menstrual cycles and produce clots, this can be entirely normal. If you are troubled by this or notice other things like excessive fatigue or intense cramps you should see an OBGYN, there are procedures that can be done in office to reduce your flow.

These usually aren't blood clots. What looks like blood clots is uterine discharge that comes with menstrual blood that is perfectly normal. This could, however, be an early miscarriage so if you think you might be pregnant, see your doctor. Most of the time these are nothing to worry about.

It's very normal to have menstrual blood clots every so often but to have them every month. I would advise you having them looked at by your Gynecologist.

This is very normal. The clots are larger at the beginning of your cycle. This is because the clots are actually the lining of your uterus that prepares your uterus to house a baby every month. It break apart when the "seed" is not planted and leaves your body through your menstrual flow.

Clotting is very normal. If you have any other changes in menstruation along with the clotting, see a doctor about it though.
