Is blood clots during a nosebleed normal?

I am 21 and this morning my nose started bleeding. I bled for over 20 minutes, heavily, and the blood was bright red. About 15 mins into the nosebleed, i felt like something was stuck at the back of my nose/throat. When I lifted my head, I felt something in my mouth so I spit it out and it was a bright red blod clot. What's wrong with me?

I was about to fall asleep when I suddenly got a nosebleed. This was weird to me since I normally don't get them, maybe one or two times a year. I just did what I always do on these rare occasions and titled toward while pinching my nose shut. I thought it was over after 10 minutes and wiped my nose with a tissue only to notice something stuck to it a little. Then there was a bright red clot on the tissue. Am I okay? Or is there something wrong.

It's completely normal to have a blood clot. I get nose bleeds ALL the time, and every time I get one or two of them. Blood clots are just a result of your body trying to stop the bleeding. Hope this helped!

Hi Anon

If this was a once off then it's not likely to be serious. Nose bleeds can happen randomly and clots aren't unusual in some people.

You might need your blood vessels in nostrils to be cauterized by an ENT doctor.

I am a 23 year old who has had allergy problems for the past 5 years. The past 2 have been difficult since it messes with my nose and ears. I can hardly smell and my ears fill with fluid every so often and cause ear infections. A few months ago I'd blow my nose and would begin to see blood. I did not think much of it since maybe I was blowing my nose too hard. A few weeks ago I blew my nose and a small blood clot looking object came out bright red. I thought it was rather odd but did not think anything of it. Today I went to the the doctor for and ear infection in both ears and she also checked my nose. She did not see anything, but I did tell her that I had been getting nose bleeds while blowing my nose. She did not think too much of it besides make a face like "you poor thing." About 20 minutes ago I blew my nose again hoping I would be able to breath better. I began to have another nose bleed so bad that I was dripping everywhere. It literally looked like bright red water by how it was pouring out of my nose. Sorry for being so graphic but I am trying to describe the scene. I blew my nose again at the sink and all of a sudden a huge blood clot came out of my right nostril. I am not sure why I had it to begin with, but has soon as it came out I could breathe! However now that it stopped bleeding and healed back up, my nose is back to being stuffed up..

I am 18 and have been having nosebleeds my entire life. In the past week I have had multiple nosebleeds a day and most lasting around 45 minutes. It is bright red and there are 2-3 clots in the nosebleed. Any recommendations on what I should do? At first I wasn't worried but I am starting to get worried. Thank you.

See an ENT your blood vessels in your nostrils are more pronounced and they need to be corderized
