Due to the shame or embarrassment associated with it, some women are unable to consult on the best practices for their health and well being during this time.
As a result, they often may do things that are harmful to them during their period.
Here are common mistakes women make during their period.
1. Failing to observe the blood
Colour and texture of the menstrual flow is a necessary indicator to the state of a woman’s health. The blood should be typically dark or bright red with occasional clotting.
Heavy clotting and orange discharge may be signs of an infection and further abnormalities should be checked by a doctor.
