Menstruation is extremely important from a woman’s point of view. During menstruation, the body removes the outer lining of the uterus. Blood is removed from the body through the vagina after it moves through the uterus.
Several women all over the world face a lot of problems during menstruation. These are the top 5 risks that one should know about periods.
1. Light flow
This is a common phenomenon if you are on pills. If you are not, then it might indicate a serious problem with thyroid or the pituitary gland. Visit a doctor immediately.
2. Sudden bleeding
Pills might cause sudden bleeding, or it can be a symptom of cervical and uterine polyps. In rare cases, it might also indicate cancer.
3. Abnormal or late periods
If you are not pregnant, then late periods might indicate an imbalance in your body; ovulation might be irregular or you might be affected by PCOS. It will also explain why you are having difficulty in predicting your fertile days.
4. Extreme cramps
Cramps are extremely painful. If these continue for a few days, it time to consult a doctor.
5. Saturated colour
If the discharge has a similar colour to that of cranberry juice, that is normal; or else you might be suffering from an imbalance of oestrogen.
Hope, you will spread these to others and make them aware about these risks. Always remember to consult a doctor if something feels wrong.
