User avatar Hello,
Clots like this are not concerning since that is the nature of blood that pools for a time. I suspect your hormones are just getting back to normal following the birth. If you are breastfeeding I would not expect you to have a period at all as long as you are doing it exclusively.

I would just watch and see what happens over the next few months.

Best wishes.
