Clotting During Menstruation

ladyhennessey Says:

I recently started taking eliquis and I always pass blood clots during my menstruation. Should I be worried?

This medication has been known to cause such issues in women that take it, as reported by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, headache, heavier periods and easy bruising.

However, if your periods do get very heavy, or the clots become large or more frequent, then you should have this checked out by your doctor.

Can any other ladies that have been on it chime in?

I'm having the same issue- had to stop BC mid pack because they found 2 clots in my lungs. I started on Eliquis last week and have had a super heavy period with clotting. I can't figure out if it's because of the mid pack stop, or the eliquis. Waiting for my doctor to call me back- it's very unnerving!!

I am on mine now for the fist time and it is awful, I am bleeding through 8 hour pads in 1 hour, I am passing clots that are huge. I am on day 4 of my period, I am usually winding down about now... and it is worse than it has been in years. I have endomeitosis so stopping my BC pill, I started my period quickly... and now i want it done. I don't feel like I can go anywhere now if I am bleeding through pads this quickly.
