3. The Menstrual Color
Knowing the color of your period is actually very helpful in determining your hormonal health. We usually experience three color patterns during our periods. While bright red is considered normal, brown and dark black are considered abnormal.
- If your flow is bright and saturated red, like cranberry juice, it indicates that you have a normal period.
- If your flow looks like a strawberry jam, it indicates low estrogen levels. This can even lead to vaginal dryness, fatigue, low libido, and hair loss.
- If your period flow looks like frozen and mashed-up blueberries, it indicates that your estrogen level is high. It is usually noticed in women who experience abnormally heavy flow.
