Periods, or we can say period blood are slowly becoming less taboo to our narrow minded society. Knowing of the fact that what your period blood should look like might save you from very dangerous conditions. Like, the light pink color of period may signal low estrogen levels & could be a signal of an approaching osteoporosis diagnosis later in your life.
So. we collected some facts/proofs related to this, that what your period color tell about your health and how to deal with it. So. just scroll down to know..
7. Pink-ish color
Pink-ish colored period blood signifies low estrogen levels in your body. If you’re an avid runner, this could also be the primary reason for your menstrual blood to be light in color, as it’s been proven that playing sports, especially running/jogging, may cause the estrogen levels to drop.
It’s something to watch out for as some studies have found a connection between low estrogen and osteoporosis symptoms later in the corresponding girl’s life.
Watery, or without color or super-light-pink menstrual blood denotes that you are either nutrient-deficient, or you could even have ovarian cancer. We are not scaring you dear, but its fact. But don’t get too nervous, fallopian-tube cancer accounts for less than even 2 percent of all gynecological cancers.
5. Dark brown
Dark brown or dark-redish means that some of the old blood has been “sitting” inside your uterus for quite too long. Nobody knows why, but this is considered to be a normal thing, so don’t worry about it.
4. Thick and looks like jam with clots
Jam-like blood discharge during your period with very dark red clots says that you might have low progesterone & high estrogen levels. It does not mean anything most of the times. However, if these clots are large in size and there are large number of them, it may mean you have a hormonal imbalance. Also, fibroids in uterus could be the cause. This condition should not scare you though.
