The Short Answer from a women’s health practitioner

Q: Are menstrual clots during heavy periods normal?

A. If you notice on heavy days of your period that blood seems extra-thick, and can sometimes form a jelly-like glob, these are menstrual clots, a mix of blood and tissue released from your uterus during your period.

They can vary in size and color, and usually, they are nothing to worry about.

Most of the time, menstrual clots are normal, but some symptoms can signal other health concerns.
