I usually have heavy blood flow during menstruation, however for this past two days, my blood flow is very light. Is it something to worry about?

Could be: A menstrual period that happens on time but is much lighter than usual could be an implantation bleed rather than a period. If you have been having unprotected sex, you need to do a pregnancy test and repeat it in 3-5 days if it is negative. There certainly are other things that can cause a period to be lighter but most will also cause it to be irregular. Hope this helps. Read more

I'm wondering why are the levels of oestrogen and progesterone low in the blood during menstruation?

I'm wondering why are the levels of oestrogen and progesterone low in the blood during menstruation?

Wow nice question: Long explanation but a brief version. Your menses is an indication that pregnancy did not occur and that your body is now eliminating the lining of your uterus and preparing for a new cycle. It is the decline in estrogen and Progesterone that tells your uterus it is time to shed the lining. The brain starts to stimulate the ovaries in a renewed attempt at getting you pregnant. See image.

How to increase my blood flow during menstruation as im anemia and have polycystic ovary?

How to increase my blood flow during menstruation as im anemia and have polycystic ovary?

PCOS usually causes: menstrual irregularity. Often, the small ovarian follicles that are formed do not trigger ovulation and the reproductive hormones--estrogen, progesterone, etc--become imbalanced. Irregular or absent periods result. The uterine lining may become thicker and shed irregularly resulting in heavy bleeding when it finally occurs. One would not want to increase this blood flow further, causing anemia. Read more

What does it mean for blood to mix with stretchy mucus during menstruation?

What does it mean for blood to mix with stretchy mucus during menstruation?

Probably normal: From what you are saying, you are noticing an increase in mucous discharge with your cycle. This might simply be related to cervical mucous that is present that has made its way out with the normal blood flow. In the absence of other symptoms or problems, I would expect this to go away with cessation of your period. Read more

I've a low blood flow during my menses n it lasts for just 2-3 days. I hardly need to change my pad. Moreover, I've excruciating pain on 1st day.?

Normal: Your situation doesn't seem to be outside of normal. If you have had this pattern since you started your menstrual history, it may be normal for you. A lot of times women who have had Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud or another form of Progesterone contraception such as depo-provera had shorter periods that don't return to their "normal" state after discontinuation. If that's the case, than that's ok as well. Read more
