Dear BeingGirl Experts,
How much blood is actually lost during a woman's period?
I know it is hard to believe, but you only lose three tablespoons of blood each period. Menstrual fluid is more than blood. It is also made up of tissue and mucus from the endometrium (this is the lining of the uterus and is what is shed during your period) with the average amount of fluid lost being six to nine tablespoons.
Hope this is helpful,
Your BeingGirl Experts
