Unusual Menstrual Clots and pain like never before

User Profile
I am 19 years old and a virgin. I have had severe ovarian pain during my cycles since I was about 14 to where I would be bedridden for days and unable to walk or sleep. Recently I was prescribed Quartette by my gynecologist to keep me from having periods, suspecting I may have endometriosis (but not willing to perform any surgery), hoping that if that was the cause, it would give my body time to heal itself from monthly trauma. I was actually prescribed to take it for six months and avoid cycling, but when I started the second batch, I started to have bleeding anyway and the pain was awful. I have passed large blood clots before, and they are a regular sight during my monthly, but this period, I had a clump that was not normal. Most clumps really are just blood and can be smeared and it'll just be blood and vaginal fluids, but this clot looked like raw animal fat, when smeared it retained shape and it was the colour of flesh. I have never had this happen before, and the pains for this cycle were only in my top 15, so not anything I've never had before. Most people who report this have had unprotected sex and use the ring, while I have done neither, so I am worried if I should seriously contact my gynecologist and set up an appointment, or if it's nothing and I can afford to save my money.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
You should not ignore your symptoms if you have not been sexually active. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough evaluation to look for the exact underlying cause for your painful periods and passing of abnormal clots. Get started on treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and evaluation results) to help you control the symptoms and regulate your periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
