I am assuming you are on time for your period, so you hadn't tested pregnant, so it maybe it is and maybe it isn't. Some months my periods are so heavy and clotted it is very similar to a miscarriage, and I've had two confirmed miscarriages, so I know the difference, and quite honestly, my period isn't any different some months to an early (5-6 week) miscarriage.

I frequently have large, heavy periods full of immense clots. I've also miscarried a twin at the start of a pregnancy (thankfully the other twin grew up to be my healthy daughter). Even the early twin was noticeably different from the often huge clots that I pass in my periods, which are normal for me. They can look exactly as you describe.

If you were on time for your period and hadn't tested positive or noticed any symptoms of early pregnancy, it's less likely that it's a miscarriage. Periods really can be that heavy.

If it's your period, then it's still considered abnormal bleeding (dysmenorrhoea) and you may need to take zinc, B6 or iron tablets.

Either which way, you should see your OB-GYN to discuss your concerns with him or her.
