Is there any conditions during pregnancy other than miscarriage that would cause you to pass large blood clots. I'm only about 8 weeks and I am passing clots of blood but my blood test shows my hcg levels are rising. Is there any explanation for this?

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. The first and foremost possiblity is a miscarriage only and other options/possiblities should be entertained only if it is ruled out. Other causes can be due to genital infections or cervical polyps (benign growths on the cervix), uterine fibroids, ectopic pregnancy, fluctuation in hormone levels and hypothyroidism. You'll likely need further tests like an Ultrasound of the lower abdomen to look for the cause of the same.

Please get yourself evaluated by a gynecologist as pelvic examination and investigations are required to confirm a diagnosis. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
