What does it mean if a person bleeds reddish orange blood during their menstrual and it is associated with mild cramps?

What does it mean if a person bleeds  reddish orange blood during their menstrual and it is associated with mild cramps?

Period blood: Not much. Reddish orange blood just sounds like a variation of normal. And cramps with periods are normal too. If the cramps are bothersome, try taking Ibuprofen 800mg 3 x daily with food. Don't take it if you have a history of ulcers or gastritis. Seek help with a gynecologist if you're still worried. ...Read more

For some odd reason my menstral blood is more an orange than red.!?

For some odd reason my menstral blood is more an orange than red.!?

Blood is blood : The color of the blood in your menstrual cycle is not useful or relevant. It reflects how long the blood has been sitting inside your uterus or at the back of your vagina. Red is new. Brown or black blood is older and the blood products have started to break down. Menstrual blood color is not something you need to pay attention to. If your cycles are heavy consider birth control for regulation. ...Read more

Subjective: The colors you described are somewhat subjective opinion of the menstrual blood. I am sure that doesn't mean anything in particular, so don't get too worried over that. ...Read more
