The menstrual clot could be a sign of fibroid—a non-cancerous tumour that forms and grows in the uterus. Fibroids, when complicated, poses a potential threat to health and wellness of childbearing women if not diagnosed earlier. Research shows that fibroid has no symptoms at all; the most common signs are prolonged and excessive menstrual flow and clotting.
