Most times all we read are what is wrong with your period, what makes your period abnormal, how some symptoms could show something is wrong with your period. Today, we will be discussing on signs of a normal and healthy period, below are signs your period is healthy and normal.

Bleeding for only two days: “On an average, a period lasts for three days and a woman can bleed for as long as five days or as less as two days and research says that it is normal if you bleed for only two days, and you need not worry as long as your period is regular however, you need to be alarmed if your period becomes irregular and you bleed for only a day or for more than five days”.
Heavy flow or light flow: “Some might have a light flow from day two or three of their period, some might have a heavy flow until their third day, which is absolutely normal and also, many women think period blood should not have clots but, clots are totally normal as period blood is usually thick because the lining of the uterus is shed during the period”.
Variation of the date: “It is a common belief that you must get your period on the same date every month, most people start fretting when that does not happen and the period gets delayed by a day or two however, that’s perfectly okay because an average menstrual cycle is of anywhere between 21 to 35 days and most of the times the number of days vary but you should be worried if the cycle lasts less than 21 days or more 35 days”.
Discomfort or pain: “Studies says that discomfort to a certain extent and some pain is a sign of normal and a healthy period but, when period pain becomes unbearable to the point where it interferes with your daily routine and is accompanied by vomiting and nausea, you need to be more cautious and visit a doctor if it keeps on happening over and over again”.
Vaginal discharge: “A white vaginal discharge just before your periods is also normal, there are wet days and dry days before a period, and that does not necessarily mean that you have an infection and research points out that s3xually active women and women who have gone through childbirth have more discharge as compared to those who are not s3xually active or active and child free”.
