I’m wondering, I’m 22 yrs old and have had low platelet disorder since age 17 for the first time I get my period with huge blood clots half the size of my palm feeling dizzy and fatigue what should I do?

    You should see a gynecologist immediately. Hopefully your low platelet condition (thrombocytopenia) is being monitored on a regular basis by a doctor. This condition could be progressing but you would have noticed more bleeding than clotting. These large clots may not even have anything to do with your low platelet condition unless you are taking medication for it. Dizziness and fatigue could be related to anemia but you have not mentioned any profuse bleeding, more than the norm. Anemia could still occur but it would not be so sudden. Considering your medical history (i.e. thrombocytopenia), it would be advisable to see a doctor even if you are now feeling better.
