Can Your Period Blood Be Telling You Something?

Menstrual Health

Clinical naturopath and nutritionist, Renee Grandi, believes your menstrual cycle – and the colour of your blood - can tell you a lot about your health.

 

The colour of your menstrual blood can tell you a lot about your health. Generally, a healthy period should be bright red, consistent in flow without significant clots, last for 3-7 days, and come in regular intervals (typically every 26-33 days).

It is important to note that these colours are a guide and any significant changes or consistent irregularities in menstrual blood or cycle patterns should always be discussed with your healthcare provider.

 

COLOUR: BRIGHT RED

This is the typical colour of fresh blood and indicates a healthy period. It's a sign that your hormones are well balanced, the blood is well oxygenated and the flow is fresh from the uterus.

 

COLOUR: DARK BROWN

This colour often appears at the beginning or end of a period and is usually old blood that has taken longer to leave the uterus. Dark brown blood can also indicate:

  • Lack of oxygenation in your blood.
  • Possible anemia or iron deficiency.
  • Stagnation, signifying that the blood isn't flowing out of the body quickly.
  • Potential deficiencies in B vitamins, especially B12 and B6.

 

COLOUR: PINK

If you experience light pink blood, this can often be indicative of low estrogen levels. Estrogen is responsible for building the uterine lining, and a thinner lining can lead to a lighter period. If pink blood is accompanied by irregular cycles, you might want to discuss further with a health professional.

 

COLOUR: ORANGE

Although this is less common, it can often be due to a mixture of cervical fluid and menstrual blood. If it is accompanied by symptoms might include itching, burning, or an unusual odour, it could suggest a potential infection. It's essential to see a healthcare provider if these symptoms are present.

 

COLOUR: PURPLE

Purple or blue-tinged blood, especially if it's thick or mucus-like, can be related to elevated estrogen levels. Estrogen dominance can make the blood appear this colour. In terms of holistic health, this may indicate a need for support in detoxification, especially liver support, as the liver processes excess hormones.
