It isn't normal. My doctor told me that I should only bleed for 6 weeks and that if I passed any clots the size of a golf ball or egg, that I needed to call them immediately. I think after 6 weeks, you shouldn't even be bleeding red blood anymore. This is kinda gross, but I still have a little bit of discharge, but it's not blood anymore...So I don't think it's normal at all to have clots still after 3 months. That's like 12 weeks. I'd call your doctor. Did you have a c-section or was it vaginal?

Yes n she said nothing to worry about because they werent happening often... I would get say 2 to 4 within a 8 day span.. An because it looked like I could break it up they stopped for awhile like 2 weeks n started again but they r the size of quarters

I don't know why your doctor dismissed it like that. I wouldn't think it would be normal to pass them that big. And now that it's been 3 months since you had him, I really don't think you should even be bleeding at all. Sometimes it takes a week or two longer for some people, but you shouldn't be passing clots still. I'd say call your doctor and tell him/her about it again and explain what's going on and if they dismiss it again, try to talk to a different doctor. You may not be healing right. Clots form from built up blood. You may have ruptured blood vessels that aren't healing. Sorry, that sounds kinda scary.

I'm not really sure what they do for it. My aunt had that problem after she had my cousin, but she never said how they fixed it. I know that when the placenta comes loose from inside of your uterus it breaks blood vessels that it was connected to, maybe that's what is causing it. Have you had any breaks in your bleeding, or have you been bleeding every day straight since you had him?

When you had your period before you got pregnant, did you have clots at all?

I don't want to scare you.... But I think you should definitely go to the doctor or even the hospital... You could have an infection that has spread to your ovaries... I know a girl who had to take antibiotics for it but then had to have an emergency partial hysterectomy...... I hope everything is okay but its not normal to be bleeding still like that... Its serious.... Sorry I don't want to scare you... Hope everything is okay..
