I'm a 28 year old female, married with no children. Tonight after having intercourse with my husband, I started passing blood clots that vary in size from the size of a pea, to the size of a quarter (estimates). I have a history of polycystic ovarian syndrome and endometriosis, as well as high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Is this something that I should be concerned about, and if so, how urgent is this (do I need to go to the ER)?

Hi , from the presentation you are giving I can come to a set of diagnosis . With the history of endometriosis before this may be also a presentation of endometriosis of the fallopian tubes or the ovary. If you did not have any pain before passing the clot then ruptured ectopic pregnancy is ruled out . May be a blood clot has formed in the endometriosis area in the uterus or the vagina and which has been dislodged while having sex. So the next thing to do is consult a gynecologist and let her run you through some tests and come to a diagnosis and direct the treatment accordingly.

You should avoid intercourse in pregnancy especially in first and last trimester as it can cause risk of abortion in first trimester and preterm birth in last trimester.
