clot blood risk

A: Dear Karan, No, HIV does not transmit from contact with clot blood (though it has to go through the process of coagulation, and HIV survives fairly shorter period outside receptor (mentioned in the next few lines). In the context of your specific queries, the virus lives a very short while outside the body. As a general rough and ready guide you can assume, especially for a small amount of blood, that the virus is only viable for the time that the blood remains liquid. After drying out, the virus soon dies ... the time is not in days but in minutes. Regards, Gorkey Sources: http://www.medicine.net http://doctor.ndtv.com...


clotted blood and a white discharge during menstruation

A: The clots you reported during your period are quite normal. It is the blood that should be expelled during the menstrual period that has already gone under the process of clotting. On the other hand, the white discharge might be either harmless or a sign of genital infection. The latter is less probable because you did not mention other symptoms of infection like: itching or burning sensation all the time or when urinating (sign of urinary tract infection often present at same time with bacterial vaginosis). You might want to wait for your menstrual period to end. If the sticky discharge is still present, then you might want to visit a gynecologist to examine the discharge....

blood clot? blood bruise?

A: It is probably a blood blister. A small circular area of bleeding just under the skin, not quite deep enough to be a bruise, but not shallow enough to be an open wound.

If you really must get rid of it, sterilise a needle by putting it a flame and letting it cool, or soaking the needle in alcohol (whiskey, gin, and spirit will do!), and gently inserting it into the black area from the side. Don't go deep, you just want to pierce the top layer of skin. Just make sure that it really isn't a freckle or a mole!...

A blood clot, or blood coagulation, is part of a process called hemostasis, and, during this process, bleeding stops because blood vessels restrict and a platelet plug is formed. blood clotting is essential to body repair and maintenance and, without it, a cut would continue to bleed, causing a person to hemorrhage. An abnormal blood clot condition called thrombosis arises when blood cells produce blood...
