The menstrual cycle takes place every month for 6-7 days. These days, a woman may have irregular cramps and other minor difficulties such as headaches and abdominal pain. If menstrual blood flows quickly out of the body, its color is red or pink.
Your menstrual blood forms the lining of your uterus. It must be juicy, lively and thick in order to provide a nutritious place for the implantation of a fertilized egg. Imagine the thick folds of gorgeous red velvet.
The fresh, bright red color is the most fertile manifestation of menstrual blood and is therefore the chosen color.
pink or pink
You need a sufficient density of red blood cells to make healthy blood. If your menstrual blood is watery or pink, you may be having trouble making enough red blood cells or not having enough iron. Common causes of pale blood include anemia, an unbalanced diet, or poor digestion/absorption of nutrients.
This is really important for our fertility! Our blood is the source of oxygen and nutrients for every organ in our body. If you don’t have enough red blood cells, all systems suffer, including your reproductive system.
brown or rusty
If your menstrual blood is dark brown or rusty, your body temperature can affect the quality of the blood. If your temperature is too high early in your cycle (over 97.8), your blood tends to turn brown or rusty – almost as if the blood has been slightly burnt.
High body temperature also interrupts the timing of ovulation, which negatively affects fertility.
On the other hand, if your body temperature is too low, your menstrual blood may take on a bluish color, as if the blood has frozen. Low body temperature can lead to congestion and blood stagnation.
You will usually see pain and blood clots associated with bluish blood. When you adjust the temperature, the color of the blood returns to normal and the blood clots and pain disappear.
In some severe cases, the blood becomes so clotted that it can turn black. This immobility involves considerable pain and clothing. This can be seen in women who have had fibroids and severe endometriosis.
Women with black menstrual blood can have an incredibly difficult time getting pregnant and can also increase the mother’s risk of bleeding problems that can affect the placenta during pregnancy.
