What is the cause of chunky blood during periods ?

yes you may. My wife is having red chunky blood , which she has ever had. I have been with her since May and we have been trying to get pregnant she was put on metformin back in October to help her. Since May she has had three periods, normally she only spots. This is not normal for her to have chunky blood. Could she be pregnant, miscarrying or just having a real period or something else.

Hello Mr. Brunell,
Thanks for writing in.
Although irregular cycles ( with irregular amounts of bleeding) is common in uncontrolled polycystic ovarian disease, the possibility of pregnancy needs to be ruled out.
I would suggest the following ( please follow this in a step wise manner to get to the real cause in the most cost effective and least troublesome manner)
a. Get a urine pregnancy test done for your wife. If positive, she needs an ultrasound to see if she has had a complete abortion. If yes, then she is good. If the abortion is incomplete, she will need a dilation and curettage to get rid of the remaining products of conception.
b. If the urine pregnancy test is negative, I would suggest she see her gynaecologist. If she wants to conceive, she would need to lose weight and continue with metformin.
Hope this helps.
