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.

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
Sir / madam my sister is having heavy menstruation after diarrhoea since last week. She recovered from diarrhoea. But she is still having blood loss.
Bleeding is generally due to normal variations. However it may also occur when a failed implantation of a fertilized ovum (egg). ie "miscarriage") and in cases of multiple heavy periods IRON Deficiency.
Just a few "thoughts".....in short I would "ignore" it. It's probably normal variation!
Hope this helps!
