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

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. ...Read more

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?

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?

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
