Signs That You are Safe During Your Period.
Seeing Blood Clots
- Clots usually appear during the heaviest part of your flow, and you don’t need to worry about these clots unless they are larger than a quarter, according to WebMD.
Getting Your Period Every 21-35days
You’ve probably heard 28 days is ‘normal’ for a period, and it is … for some women. Your cycle can range anywhere from 21 to 35 days, so just because it doesn’t fit the 28-day average, don’t fret.
And if you’re one of those lucky women who has it come every 35 days instead of every 21, count yourself blessed.
Infrequent Periods As A Teenager
It takes a bit for your body to figure out your whole menstrual cycle thing, so you may not have the most regular periods a few years after you start – that’s OK.
Signs That are Abnormal During Your Period
- Cramping is normal for women on their period, but if your cramps make it impossible to leave your bed, your body could be crying for help.If you suddenly have intense menstrual cramps when you used to have light cramps, this could be an indicator you have endometriosis.
Endometriosis happens when the uterus lining is outside of the uterus and connected to things like your fallopian tubes, bladder and ovaries. It usually creates a lot of pain and can affect your fertility.
Missing Periods In A Row
- If you haven’t had a period for more than 90 days (or three months), this is considered abnormal, according to the Cleveland Clinic. (Unless of course you started your period for the first time recently, are pregnant, breastfeeding, or going through menopause.)
There could be a lot of explanations for your period stopping. It ranges anywhere from gaining or losing a lot of weight to going off of birth control or having uterine or cervical cancer. If you’re period has stopped, be sure to visit your doctor.
