Causes of blood clots during menstrual bleeding and its Homeopathic Remedies

Many females pass small clots during menstrual bleeding once in a while and that is absolutely normal. These are composed of tissues of the uterine lining, blood cells, mucus and proteins. But passing large clots frequently during menses could arise from some medical condition that needs to be diagnosed and treated. The first medical reason behind it is uterine fibroids. These are benign (non – cancerous) growths made of muscle and connective tissue in the uterus. Fibroids can cause passage of blood clots in the menstrual blood along with other symptoms including prolonged periods, pelvic pain, menstrual cramps, intermenstrual bleeding, painful intercourse, back pain and pain in the legs.

Another cause could be endometriosis. It refers to the growth of endometrial tissue, normally lining the mucous membrane of uterus, in areas other than uterus like in the fallopian tubes, ovaries, rectum, intestines and the urinary bladder. It can lead to heavy menstrual bleeding with clots, painful periods, pelvic pain, painful urination, painful intercourse, pain in the rectum and bleeding from the urinary bladder or rectum at the same time as that of menstrual bleeding.

Blood clots may also arise in cases of uterine polyps (small soft fleshy growths developing in the lining of the uterus). Blood clots may also pass during heavy bleeding at menopause time. Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) could also lead to heavy bleeding with clots. Another reason is adenomysosis (a condition in which endometrial tissue of the uterus grows in the muscle wall of the uterus). Its symptoms include heavy menstrual bleeding with clots, long duration of menstrual bleeding, painful periods, painful intercourse, bleeding in between the periods and bloating. Rest of the reasons might include thyroid disorders, bleeding disorders (like platelet function disorders and von Willebrand’s disease which is a bleeding disorder in which blood does not clot properly) and cancer of the uterus or the cervix.

Homeopathic Management

Homeopathic mode of treatment carries a great scope to manage passing of blood clots during menstrual bleeding. By treating the root cause behind the blood clots during menses homeopathic medicines bring excellent results. Along with blood clots, any attending symptoms are also well managed with homeopathic medicines like heavy menstrual bleeding, intermenstrual bleeding(bleeding in between the periods), pain during menses and early periods before time. Homeopathic medicines for treating this condition are made of natural substances, hence are very safe to use without any toxic side effects. Homeopathic prescription to treat passing blood clots during menses varies from case to case based on the cause behind it and characteristic individual symptoms. So any of these medicines should be taken under the supervision of a homeopathic doctor after detail case evaluation and self-medication should be avoided. Some of the causes behind blood clots during periods can be quite serious so it is advised to always get your case evaluated by a doctor to find out the reason behind it and its appropriate timely treatment. In case of serious causes, it is advised to take help from conventional mode of treatment as homeopathy has a limitation in handling such cases.
