We have been trying for our 2nd baby for over 2 years and I am now waiting for my referal to hospital for tests, but my periods over the last 6 mths have gone clotty and last mth very clotty where I passed on clot that was very big I actually felt it comming out(sorry). Has anyone experienced this I would love to hear from ye as I am so afraid I might not be able to have any more children. My periods are regular and I also was using ovulation stripes to make sure we have sex at the right time. Any advice guys?

I would get that checked. You should never have clots bigger than a key lime in diameter. It could mean that your uterus isn't contracting correctly during your cycle, or that you are having miscarriages.

Dont worry about the clots this is fine, as long as you are not in excessive pain. You are just shedding more of the lining of your uterus this is not a bad thing. If you are worried ask for a scan to make sure that you do not have a polyp. This can cause you not to conceive and is easily remedied.
