Women bleed during their menstrual cycle but bleeding can cause several levels of anxiety for them. For example women who are sexually active can get confused and nervous when they have vaginal bleeding for no reason. It could also be due to implantation. For a woman, who is not prepared for a pregnancy, the sight of blood can be very disturbing. She may also think that it is her periods. Periods are nothing but your regular monthly menstruation cycle.
Menstruation occurs monthly because the woman’s body is shedding the lining of the uterus. When there is no pregnancy then the lining of the uterus sheds and that is why we blood. The blood that comes out is very rich in nutrients and hormones. It is mainly prepared to support a pregnancy. During the menstruation, the ovaries release the egg on the 14th day of the cycle. If there is a sperm to fertilize it, then it will result in pregnancy. However, when that does not happen, the egg and the uterus wall are all shed and it results in periods. There are several reasons why a woman does not get her periods as well, and one of them is pregnancy.
When fertilization of the ovum does not take place, the thickening lining of the endometrium is shed. This results in menstrual bleeding. Generally, this process occurs every twenty-eight days. However, when the ovum is fertilized by a sperm, the fertilized egg gets implanted into the uterus. During this process, a woman tends to bleed. And, this implantation bleeding can often be confused with menstrual bleeding. But it is important to note that both these bleedings are different. One occurs when the egg is not fertilized, while the other occurs when the fertilized eggs latches onto the endometrial wall and begins to develop within the womb.
Periods start in women once they start menstruating in their teen years. Periods are also accompanied with cramping and headaches. Some women also get migraines and irritability. Blood flow in periods can vary from one woman to the next. Sometimes, it becomes very difficult to tell whether it is an implantation bleeding or is it periods. If you have some other symptoms like cramping, which you typically get during menstrual periods, then you have reason to believe that it is your periods. However, if there are no symptoms present, then it can be implantation bleeding. But it is best to visit a doctor to get confirmation whether you are pregnant or not.
