OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry helps us makes sense of what may be going on in regards to someone's period and their health in terms of color.
Light pink: She explains this could be a result of a lower amount of estrogen, which can happen to avid runners and athletes.
Bright or cranberry red: She says this occurs when a period is at its heaviest.
Brown or blackish: Dr. Nita notes this occurs when blood takes longer to get out of the body and says this is usually not a big deal and is most likely the blood oxidizing.
Greyish: Our OB/GYN says this could be a sign there is an infection, especially if associated with an itch or odor.
Clear: She says this is usually just normal vaginal discharge, which can occur throughout the month.
Stringy or egg white color: Dr. Nita notes this is usually a sign of when a woman is most fertile and typically occurs mid-cycle.
She suggests if a woman has any period-related issues out of the norm -- like a period being heavier than normal, itching, an odor, clotty, a fever, or abdominal pain, to consult with a doctor. Dr. Nita notes all of these could be signs of an infection or even possibly a miscarriage.
