Period color matters

Saba® makes you feel #CómodaContigo.

Your period flow may look different depending on the day you are in. Plus, it’s not only made up of blood but also of tissue rests, which is the layer of the uterus that comes off.

Black of dark brown

This is the color of the “oldest” flow or the one that takes longer to leave your body.

  • When: It may appear at the beginning or end of your period.

  • Why: When seen at the beginning, the tissue that wasn’t fully removed in your previous period comes off and is the first thing that comes out. When seen at the end, it’s because the flow is already very light and when it takes longer to get out of your uterus, it takes this color.


Red

This is the “newest” flow tone.

  • When: It can be after the removal of the old endometrium or on every day of your period.

  • Why: The flow leaves your V-zone faster and has no time to become darker, this is because the blood vessels that feed the endometrium are bleeding directly.

You may also notice a clear red discharge, this is a substance found in the blood to help the walls of the endometrium heal after it breaks off. But it appears only a little.

 

Consistency:

  • With clots: Appears in heavy periods, because the anticoagulant mechanism of the body doesn't have time to function right.

  • Like jelly: It’s when the menstrual flow mixes with the natural secretions of the cervix.

  • Light: The lighter and more moderated flow has a more liquid consistency.

Remember that if you notice something strange, it’s important that you discuss it with your doctor.
