Your period has a lot of different colours and shades. It is not only red, although this is often the predominant colour. It is normal to find that your menstrual blood has different shades of red and even different colours. It is very important that women, pay attention to the bleeding because length, timing and appearance are great indicators of a woman’s overall health.
Like many of you, I never thought for a second about the period products I was using since my 13 y.o. So, imagine my surprise when I realized that the amount of plastic used in pads and tampons is huge.
