... menstruation. My periods have been reduced by 2/3 which is great and I no longer have palm size clots, but where is the blood going in my body that isn't coming out? It makes me nervous that my period is so light now
There is no blood to go anywhere. When you menstruate, you are shedding the lining of your uterus that builds up to prepare you for pregnancy. When you don't get pregnant this is shed. This has a large amount of blood in it. If your period has decreased it means you aren't building up as much lining. You aren't "bleeding" when you have your period. The clots aren't really blood clots they are large clumps of the lining.
