Thanks for the query.
Irregularity in menstrual cycles is common while being on hormonal contraceptives.
So the clots you are having could be due to that.
And possibly that will continue with menstrual flow.
If not, once go for pregnancy test.
If the test comes negative, no need to worry.
Possibly your menstrual irregularity will subside.
If passage of clots continues or excessive bleeding occurs, consult gynecologist once and take tablets to control bleeding.
Take care.
