Menstruation is simply part of the life of every woman.
Do you know that your body can reveal a lot more through the menstruation and not only whether you are pregnant or not? Namely, the color of the blood reveals whether something is wrong or not.
The simple explanation for the pink color of the blood is that it is the end of your menstrualcycle. However, if you notice pink blood in the middle of the menstrual cycle it may indicate an early pregnancy, hormonal imbalance or some type of disease of the reproductive organs.
• Light red
The light red color indicates that everything is all right with your menstrual cycle and there are no problems. However, if the menstruation last for more than 7 days and the blood continues to be red, you should definitely consult a doctor.
• Dark red
If dark red blood appears in the middle of the menstrual cycle, it is completely normal.
However, if the dark red blood continues for more than normal, it may be a sign of an early miscarriage or the presence of a benign tumor.
This blood color may indicate an infection. You may also feel an unpleasant smell, like something rotten.
Visit a gynecologist immediately.
Brown or black blood may seem bad, but don’t worry. It is only old blood, which was left in the uterus. It is usually completely normal.
You should be careful only if you notice orange or yellow color under that layer. This may be a sign of an infection.
• Heavy bleeding
Many women have heavy bleeding during at least one day of the menstrual cycle. This usually happens during the second or third day. However, if the heavy bleeding continues, consult a gynecologist.
If you notice spots of blood when you don’t have a menstruation, it can be a sign of a hormonal imbalance or pregnancy.
• No period
Some kind of disease, pregnancy, stress, sudden loss of weight or menopause may cause absence of your period.
