Hello
It is not out of the ordinary.
What is , the bleeds themselves.
There often is a reason, such as damaged blood vessels in the nose, allergy commonly, and rarely other reasons./
Large blood clots are not uncommon for an acute bleed.
If this re starts, go to a and e.
If she is still bleeding post nasally, go to a and e.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
