Periods are part of the menstrual cycle and they differ from woman to woman in frequency, duration and color. Periods can tell a lot about the gynecological health of a woman. In fact, your period can help you detect a minor or more serious health issue. That’s why observing your flow as well as other symptoms during your period can help you keep track of your overall health.

This is what your period tells about your health

  • Color and flow – according to Dr. Alisa Vitti, a holistic health counselor and functional nutritionist, there are 3 basic colors related to periods and these include colors resembling mashed frozen blueberries, strawberry jam, and cranberry juice.

– Frozen blueberry color and texture in periods is linked to high estrogen levels. It’s marked by heavier cycle than the normal because the uterus is thicker than normal.

Lighter color resemblingstrawberry jam is a sign of low estrogen levels. The flow can be patchy and is often late owing to the law estrogen levels and thinner uterine It’s often linked to birth control use.

– Cranberry juiceis the color of a healthy period and is not linked to any health issue.

  • Spotting – spotting is when you bleed a little during the period. It’s often a sign of something more serious including:– Hormonal imbalance– this condition occurs as a result of progesterone and estrogen misbalance mainly caused by thyroid issues, dysfunctional ovaries, and birth control– Stress;– Cancer – although rarely, spotting can be caused by cervical, uterine or ovarian cancers;– Infection.
  • Period pain – severe menstrual pain that doesn’t go away requires immediate medical attention. Menstrual cramping, also called dysmenorrheal, is typically the result of high prostaglandin, the hormone involved in the inflammation process. Although menstrual cramps are normal, if they are severe and persist for more than 2 days, it’s a red alert to see a gynecologist. It could indicate endometriosis, a condition where the uterine lining is growing outside the uterus, in the pelvic area, instead of inside. When the lining is shed, it has nowhere to go, thus causing cramps and severe pain. 10% of women are affected with this condition.
