First, it’s kind of self-assurance that one day you will have beautiful children and secondly for some, it may be more than just self-assurance but a sign of relief that the fun didn’t basically go wrong.
But did you know that your periods say a lot about your health? Yes! they definitely do! Wondering how????? Let’s give you everything that you need to know about periods.
WHAT DOES YOUR FLOW SAY ABOUT YOUR HEALTH?
There are basically two kinds of menstrual bleeding that women have to go through while their periods:
- Heavy bleeding: They say too much of everything is bad. Similarly, too much of menstrual bleeding can cause anemia. Heavy bleeding can even result in polyps, tumors in the cervix, uterus fertility-threatening fibroids and even abnormal growths on the uterine wall.
- Light bleeding: Light bleeding indirectly indicates weakness, improper nutrition, and other hormonal problems.
DO YOU SOMETIMES EVEN BLEED AFTER YOUR PERIOD IS OVER?
If yes is the answer then you must know you are dealing with a vaginal infection here or some kind of hormonal disbalance. Moreover, this generally happens with those who take too much of birth control pills.
DO YOU IGNORE THE PAIN WHILE ON YOUR PERIODS?
Though a hormone called prostaglandin is responsible for the pain you have to go through but these pains can even turn into your worst nightmare. For example, the cramps that you generally feel in the lower abdomen area of your body while on your periods can lead to a condition called endometriosis. Endometriosis is responsible for the abnormal growth of uterine tissue which starts to grow outside the uterus when affected.
WHAT DOES THE COLOR OF YOUR PERIOD SAYS ABOUT YOUR HEALTH?
Frozen mashed-up blueberries: This is the symbol of having slightly high estrogen levels.
Strawberry jam: This is the symbol of having slightly low estrogen levels.
Cranberry juice: This is indeed the normal color of the period that should be seen every month.
HOW OFTEN DO THESE PERIOD GAPS HINDER YOUR CYCLE?
This directly indicates how healthy your body is. If you are late on your period and not even pregnant then you are surely having a hormonal disbalance. If so, immediately consult a doctor.
Don’t ignore any of the signs because your health is very precious and you need a vessel called the body to hold your soul. So, keep this vessel safe and working.
