5 Things Your Period Tells About Your Health

You may think the only thing your period can tell you is whether or not you're pregnant—or if need to pop an ibuprofen because your cramps hurt like hell.

But your menstrual cycle can actually clue you in to other health issues, too.

While menstrual habits may change a bit through the decades, it's important to consider changes in menses, such as change in frequency, length, and amount of flow.

Here we shares five conditions your period could tip you off to.

Make an appointment with your gyno if you suspect any of them may be an issue for you.

1. Light flow indicates you may have pituitary gland or thyroid issue.

If you are taking birth control pills, then you do not need to panic if you have light flow because that is usual. But if you're not and you still have light flow, then there is a chance you have a hormonal imbalance. Experts says that light flow may indicate thyroid or pituitary gland related problems.

2. Cervical or uterine polyps can cause sudden bleeding throughout periods.

If you have a sudden or unrelated bleeding on your normal cycle then you are having a breakthrough bleeding. Again, it's normal if you are on pills, otherwise you should consult your doctor. Breakthrough bleeding can sometimes be a sign of uterine or cervical polyps, which results due to too much estrogen in the body. However, it can also indicate fibroids or other similar infections. Such bleeding from the va gina can also indicate cancer.

3. If you suffer from severe and unbearable cramps which last for a couple of days then you must consult a doctor.

If you have intense cramps during your periods, and think it is usual, consider you are making a big mistake. Doctors claim that young women who often think they need to endure the intense cramps they are experiencing, is definitely not the case. It can be harmful if they do not talk about them.

4. If your menstrual cycle is late and there is are chances of pregnancy, you are most likely having hormonal imbalance. Consult your doctor if this is the case.

If your menstrual cycle is late, and there are some chances you are pregnant, then it is great. Otherwise, there are several things you should know. You may not have regular ovulations or you might have PCOS, which makes knowing your fertile days more difficult for you. In case you are obese person or have a very low percent of body fat, you may be dealing with a severe hormonal imbalance. If this is your case you need to contact your doctor immediately.

5. If your menstrual discharge has saturated red color, very similar to “cranberry juice”, it means you have a normal secretion.

However, if your secretion has any other color the “cranberry juice” one than you may have estrogen imbalance.
Granted, that doesn't mean that your period causes any of these problems—or that you're doomed to experience them if you're an early or late bloomer. But it's still a good reminder that your flow can serve as an indication of other things going on in your body.
