I was late one day taking the pill, instead off taking it in the morning I took it at night !

Hi there,
I am an experienced Medical Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This can be your period given lots of clots.

You can still take a pregnancy test --but it will likely be negative.

Thyroid gland disorder also can cause this.

Please check your thyroid panel as well.
Best wishes,
Please reply back if you need any further clarification.
It was my pleasure to help you today.

It was negative, I don’t know if it was to early to test.

When did you check?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Only did the test yesterday morning
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
I was spotting for 2 days and came out in clots and wasn’t exactly heavy

Ok --then this is reliable test.

Given your history of irregular periods, the flow may not always be same.

Also medications you are currently on can impact your period by changing hormone balance.

In aware of this, thankyou.
It just doesn’t add up to me that’s all and I’m scared & confused

I also suggest a pelvic exam and a pelvic ultrasound to check for uterus lining and fibroid which can cause irregular menses.

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
How would I go about that

Please see your doctor or a gynecologist.
