Can Big Blood Clots During My Period Be A Symptom of PCOS?

Dear Robin: “Can big blood clots during my period be a symptom of PCOS? I suffer from weight gain, facial hair, my hair on my head falls out regularly, coarse hair on my legs, stomach and chin, irregular periods but heavy periods when I do have one, depression and anxiety, aching hips.” ~ Gabrielle

Dear Gabrielle: Yes, blood clots are a symptom of PCOS. Irregular menstrual cycles are one of the hallmark symptoms. I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing so many symptoms of hormone imbalance; your body is desperately asking you for help and it’s so awesome that you are paying attention.

It is imperative that you change your diet otherwise you won’t heal your body.

I’m sure you know what to do but it’s hard to get started, right?

You can start slowly by just adding in more vegetables every day because you really need the vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Aim for 2 cups of veggies at each meal. Focus on scrambles, sautés, shakes, stews (crockpot dishes), soups and stir frys. These make it really easy to sneak veggies into your meals. The shakes, soups and crockpot dishes are my favorites because it’s so easy to add vegetables to these meals and they taste delicious.

Additionally, using herbs and spices are not only healing but they make food taste SO good. Smoked paprika and chipotle are my faves.

Keep me posted on your progress Gabrielle and send me your favorite recipe! ~ Robin
