Hi All, apologies if this has been posted previously just needing some advice.
my cycle is anywhere between 28/32 days and periods last around 5 days. This month was no different I had my usual period lasting 5 days but then 3 weeks later around day 24 I started spotting which became heavy like a period and after 6 days is slower but still there. sorry to overshare here but my periods are quite heavy day 2-3 but this was flooding with some large clots present which has slowed but still small clots. I have googled (yes I know) and all I'm getting back is that it could be implantation bleeding/miscarriage etc. I've not yet done a test as my period was only due to start on 3/2/17 so unsure as to when I can test just to rule those things out. I have had major stress this month also and recently lost over 2st in the last 5 months or so. I realise I must sound like an idiot but any help would greatly appreciated. Oh I'm not ttc however also not currently on any contraceptives.

Many things can impact on your period - pregnancy, hormone levels, stress/anxiety, a change in exercise amount, a change in calorie intake, a period of ill health...
If the clots are bigger than a 50p coin then you should get checked over but small clots can be perfectly normal.
Any doubts or concerns don't be afraid to talk to your GP.
