Every woman has her own experience of life with critical days. Is there even such a thing as normal menstruation? Experts assure that yes!
1. She happens every month
Even if she lingers a little due to stress or lack of sleep, that's okay too. Usually critical days start every 24-34 days, last from 3 to 7 days. And if in some month they did not come or, on the contrary, came twice, this is a reason to consult a doctor.
Of course, if you use certain contraceptives, the timing rule may not be followed, and this is a variant of the norm.
2. It is more or less constant
Critical days can be light and plentiful, long and short, but the cycle length hardly changes during the prime of adulthood (from about 20 to 40 years). In adolescence and before menopause, major changes are possible. It is important to pay attention to discharge that has changed color or has an unpleasant odor.
3. Low blood loss
On average, during menstruation, you lose 20-60 ml of blood, sometimes a little more. If you use a menstrual tray, it's fairly easy to track, but not necessary.
4. There should be no anemia
In some months, blood loss is greater than usual. But if this is not accompanied by increased fatigue, pallor and other signs of anemia, there is nothing to worry about.
5. She does not interfere with life
This is an important, albeit subjective criterion. Very plentiful critical days, when you are forced to stay at home and constantly change hygiene products, and even suffer from pain, are not considered normal and require referral to a specialist.
