fast clotting of blood, family history of heart disease. Should I be worried?

I had cut my RIGHT toe , as it bled, within seconds it started clotting. i noticed this when I was wipping the blodd off my foot that was running down my toe. As I cleaned the blood the clot reminded me of a menstral cycle? It actually worried me very much considering i have just turned 35 in the past few days. Please tell me if I should be worried enough to have my blood tested quickly . Heart disease DOES run in both maternal and paternal sides of my family.

This is entirely normal and nothing to be worried about. What you describe is the normal rate of clotting of the blood. This is not a sign of impending heart problems. I hope this is reassuring to you.
