I am 25 years old and I have always had normal periods. But this month, from the starting of February I have traces of blood like very little in urine whenever i used bathroom i noticed little light blood clots. And this month my period was also late and did not come out properly. Usually it stays 5-6 days but this time I spotted blood or i would say blood clots from the first day of this month. The blood or my period properly came out on 11th February so i thought it is ok. But it only stayed for two days and then stopped and again blood clots when i use bathroom. And, Today is 18th February and today after I used the bathroom there was traces of blood. I noticed some blood with little clots, blood is not dark in color. It is light now. Haven’t been having any stomach pains anymore, but yeah sometimes i feel a very minor stomach pain. So i'm also concerned because this has never happened before! I really do not know what is happening, I did not sleep with anyone yet so I can’t be pregnant for sure or injured. I'm a virgin. Please help I don’t know whether to be worried or not :( I've never experienced this before. Sorry for the poor grammer hope someone understands what I am talking about and please help me and advice me something?

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for reaching out to EmpowHER.

Many women have clots in their menstrual blood from time to time. The clots may be bright red or dark in color. Often, but not always, these clots are shed on the heaviest days of bleeding. The presence of multiple clots in your flow may make your menstrual blood seem thick or denser than usual. If you have excessive clotting or clots larger than a quarter, I would see your doctor to rule out any conditions that might be causing an abnormal period.
