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

Sometimes our periods start with just a slight discharge of pink fluid before it comes on fully and turns red. This is perfectly normal, even if it doesn't happen to you on a regular basis.

Hi Anon

A "normal" cycle can be from days 21-35. You may just have a very irregular cycle, it's not too uncommon in women. And sometimes this can happen out of the blue, even if you are normally regular. Things like stress, a poor diet or hormones can be the cause of this. If you are concerned, please see your doctor.
