Dear BeingGirl Experts,

Do you really lose blood when you have your period???

Dear Mona,

Yes, blood is part of the fluid leaving your body during your period. The amount of blood in the menstrual fluid varies from woman to woman, and from day to day during the period. A period usually ends quite lightly, with most menstrual fluid lost in the first few days. Even then, the period or menstrual fluid doesn't come out very quickly. You lose about six to nine tablespoons of menstrual fluid during your period, but only about three tablespoons of it is blood. There is not as much as you might think. Your body contains more than five pints of blood, so it doesn't miss the little you lose during a period and quickly makes up for it.

 

Hope this is helpful
