I cant seem to get a straight answer from my OBGYN's office

This answer was rated:

Hi there,
My name is ***** ***** I cant seem to get a straight answer from my OBGYN's office whether to go to the hospital or wait until their next opening which is next week. I am having unusual clotting to go along with my cycle. I have been on my cycle for almost two weeks with no end in sight and for the last five days my clots have been large in size. When I say large I mean 3-6", dark in color, and very thick. Should I go in or should I wait?
Hello Michelle,

Bigger clots and bleeding from almost two weeks warrant that you go to hospital at the earliest. This duration and amount of bleeding can cause anemia and it is high time that it is investigated by an ultrasound and blood investigations. Following can be the causes;

1) Fibroid uterus
2) Uterine polyp
3) Endocervical polyp
4) Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism
5) Prolactin abnormalities
6) Endometrial hyperplasia
7) Other hormonal aberrations.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
