My menstrual is two weeks early. Day one was light day 2 was heavy bright red with multiple blood clots. What does this mean thank you in advance?

Not a true period: A true menstrual period cannot come 14 days after the last period. The recent bleeding could be a hormone imbalance or bleeding from something in the uterus such as fibroids or polyps. The presence of clots suggests heavier than normal bleeding. I would suggest a visit with your obgyn. ...Read more

After 1 weeks menstrual ended, when pass urine there is a pink or sometime red mucus coming out..after urine,there is some blood stain whn wiping..

This can be: challenging. The fact that you notice this most often after urination means that you must be most suspicious that there is some type of bloody discharge coming from the urethra/urinary tract. This could be simple inflammation of the urethra--urethritis--or an indicator of infection or other problem in the bladder or kidneys. It needs evaluation and testing. See your Doctor soon/now:) ...Read more

Why am i having pink and red koolaid colored blood for my menstrual cycle?

Old 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
