This is a little funny because just a few days ago I was worried about a slightly late period...and I got it on Wednesday...
BUT, just tonight suddenly it decided to become a VERYYY heavy flow which ruined a favorite pair of my underwear.

The part that weirded me out, after I ran to the bathroom, immediatly when I removed the tampon and sat on the toilet, something that seemed like a blood clot about the size of (more like diameter, it was flat, but a bit lumpy)of a kiwi.

Was it just a random blood clot?

Thank you!

as long as you're not hemorrhaging a LOT (like you just slashed yourself with a steak knife), and you're not in a lot of pain nor feeling weak, then it's probably just a clot.

as for the underwear, give it a soak in warm (not hot!) water with OxyClean. then wash as usual.
