In brief: Not sure

Bleeding on one side of a pad or tampon? I need a more specific question before an accurate answer can be given.

In brief: One side period

Normal menstrual flow originates in the uterus -flows out the vagina and is not one sided.

For some women though the blood only seems to be on one side of the pad. This is usually due to differences in the way the pad or tampon sits. We are not perfectly the same on either side and that difference can cause the blood to flow down one side or the other.
