mashed frozen blueberries
A period that looks like frozen blueberries indicates a possible high cholesterol estrogen level, which could lead to heavier cycles. Estrogen causes the lining to be thicker than normal, causing cramping.
A strawberry jam type period could mean that estrogen levels are low, causing irregular and late periods. This can also be caused by using birth control.
A cranberry juice color and liquidity is the perfect period, starting on time and not being too heavy or painful.
Sometimes spotting may occur between periods which could be caused by a hormonal imbalance, infection, stress, or even cancer. Get checked by your doctor if it persists.
Very painful periods are typically caused by endometriosis, affecting about 10% of women. This happens when the uterine lining grows outside the uterus instead of inside.
