Before getting anxious, let’s know more about the colors of period blood, so that we can understand ourselves better. Our periods are a great way to check in with how our bodies are doing. The color, texture, smell, and more gives us great insight into how our bodies are operating.
What color does it usually have? Black, Brown, Dark red, Red, Orange, Pink and Grey.
Black, brown, or dark red period blood color
At the beginning or end of your period, blood would be a dark brown/red and have a thick consistency — but it’s also normal for the first signs of your period to be bright red and more liquid.
If you notice brown period blood at the start or end of your period, it’s because the blood is older and took longer to leave your uterus. The uterine lining darkens the longer it takes to leave the body.
Period blood clots are normal on the heaviest days of your period, and can appear deep red or almost dark black as well.
Bright red period blood color
This usually occurs on the second and third days of menstruation. As the endometrium falls off faster, the bright red menstrual blood is newer blood, so it has no time to oxidise and darken before it leaves your body.
Pink period blood color
Spotting is any bleeding that happens outside of your regular period. Bleeding that mixes with fertile cervical fluid can appear light red or pinkish. Watery, pink vaginal discharge that occurs irregularly may be a sign of cervical cancer and should consult with doctor.
Grey period blood color
This could be a sign of an infection. If you experience heavy bleeding with pieces of grayish tissue, this could be a sign of a miscarriage. You need help from doctor.
Orange period blood color
While light yellow discharge is nothing to worry about, a darker yellow could be a sign of infection.You need to ask the doctor for help.
So changes in period blood color are normal, dark red, brown or black period blood is simply blood that has reacted with oxygen. Talk to your doctor provider if you have greyish or pink watery discharge, as this can be a sign of an infection or something more serious like cancer.
