    5 Healthy Periods Symptoms in women which help signify good health

    • 4.7   (9 Votes)

    Most of the women think about how to get periods fast. Before that, it is important to know about healthy periods symptoms which help in ensuring good health. Some of the period symptoms include bleeding during periods for more than 2 days to less than 5 days, variation in period dates, changing from heavy flow to light flow during menstrual cycle days, and vaginal discharge.

    Menstrual cramps are probably the only reason women hate periods, not to forget the continuously flowing fluid below. They would give anything to put away the menstrual cramps for the rest of their lives. Different women experience different kinds of flow during their menstrual cycle and they often wonder if theirs is, indeed, a healthy period. Have you been reading about what is wrong with your period or how a particular symptom could mean that something is not normal with your period? Well, we have decoded the mystery of what exactly a normal or healthy period is. (1)

    Bleeding for only two days:

    On average, a period lasts for three days and a woman can bleed for as long as five days or as less as two days. It is normal if you bleed for only two days, and you need not worry as long as your period is regular. However, you need to be alarmed if you have irregular periods and you bleed for only a day or for more than five days. (2)

    Variation of the date:

    It is a common belief that you must get your period on the same date every month. Most of us start fretting when that does not happen and the period gets delayed by a day or two. However, that's perfectly okay. An average menstrual cycle is of anywhere between 21 to 35 days and most of the times the number of days vary. However, you should be worried if the cycle lasts less than 21 days or more 35 days. You can track your cycle on OVO fertility. (3)

    Heavy flow or light flow:

    Some might have a light flow from day two or three of their period, some might have a heavy flow until their third day, which is absolutely normal. Also, many women think period blood should not have clots. But, clots are totally normal as period blood is usually thick because the lining of the uterus is shed during the period. (4)

    Discomfort or pain:

    The discomfort to a certain extent and some pain is a sign of normal and a healthy period. But, when menstrual cramps or period pain becomes unbearable to the point where it interferes with your daily routine and is accompanied by vomiting and nausea, you need to be more cautious and visit a doctor if it keeps on happening over and over again. (5)

    Vaginal discharge:

    A white vaginal discharge just before your periods is also normal. There are wet days and dry days before a period, and that does not necessarily mean that you have an infection. The sexually active women and women who have gone through childbirth have more discharge as compared to those who are not sexually active or active and child-free. (6)
