BRIGHT CRANBERRY RED:
This means a healthy normal period. Your flow should start moderately heavy on day 2 and then taper off as your periods come to an end.
This may indicate low estrogen levels, extreme exercise or dieting, nutrient deficiency. It is usually accompanied with light bleeding too.
DARK EGGPLANT PURPLE:
This may indicate high estrogen levels. It's usually accompanied by heavy bleeding; high estrogen, PMS, PCOS, endometriosis, ovarian cysts or fibroids.
Brownish maroon in colour on first day may indicate low progesterone or be old oxidized blood from previous cycle.
Bright orange in colour may indicate sign of vaginal infection or blood mixed with cervical fluid. Make an appointment with your doctor.
