ask: What causes light pink mentrual bleeding?

By Anonymous
 
Rate This

My period has been pretty regular since 2006 coming every 25-28 days. It usually lasts 7 days and is very heavy and dark red. My last two periods were different, one lasting 5days with brown spotting and the most recent was light pink and heavy but only lasted two days.

Hi Anon

Our menstrual cycles can change from month to month, even out of the blue. This is nothing to be concerned about in general, especially when it comes to the flow or color of our periods. It often depend on the amount of lining of the uterus that we shed. 

Your period this month does not sound worrisome and will likely turn into a regular flow within a day or two. 

Best,

Susan

Hi Anon

I'm sorry you're not feeling well - since you are in hospital, have your medical team talk with you.

Best,

I can't figure out what's going on with me....last month I had a weird period. It would start out pink and watery then get heavy for like 5 days then stop. But then it started up again the week after the same way I couldn't figure it out. The whole time I was sick in the morning, cramping, pain in my abdomen, hot flashes, exc. But now....I haven't got my period this month and the same symptoms are popping up hot flashes, feeling sick, pain in my abdomen, cramping, gas exc...I took a pregnancy test but it came out negative...I don't know what to do.

Hi Anon

It sounds like you may have some kind of hormonal imbalance. How old are you? 

This is something that warrants a doctor visit.

Best,

Hi again Anon

I suggest you see your doctor. You are having symptoms that may be due to a hormonal imbalance and your doctor can get you treated. 

Will you keep us posted?

Best,

Susan
