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

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

What do blood clots mean during menstruation? I have a heavy flow, and at one point in time it was said i had a miscarriage due to uterus lining detaching...

Menorrhagia: Heavy bleeding, or menorrhagia can be due to a variety of reasons. Most common is hormonal. Endometriosis can be a factor. In addition, thyroid, pituitary glands, as well as weight (too thin/heavy), rarely vonwillebrand syndrome. Not usual in someone at 19, a lesion such as a polyp or fibroid can cause as well. Clots just mean excess blood. May want to consider workup with gynecologist? ...Read more

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
