Any time that you have vaginal discharge after your period, you may feel a bit concerned. Generally, vaginal discharge is nothing to be concerned about and it is a normal occurrence.There are several reasons why you might have normal discharge after a period. The biggest reason is hormonal changes and is completely normal. As you go through your cycle each month, your body produces different hormones.

For some women, especially those of child bearing age, a discharge helps to signal fertile times.

When Do Women Stop Having Periods
The start of periods for a girl implies that they now have a childbearing capacity. The average age when menses begins is 12 years. The fertility of a woman declines as the woman grows old.

The monthly menstrual cycle, affectionately coined Aunt Flo, moon time, and other interesting little names is something that affects most women between the ages of 15 to 45 years of age. There are five different points you should consider when it comes to this fascinating biological process.
Cramps Happen, Stay Calm
Many women may experience abdominal cramps a few days before, and sometimes during the 3 to 7 days that they are menstruating. Cramps are simply a signal that your uterus is preparing to shed the lining inside since there isn’t a fertilized egg to nurture. Be kind to yourself and enjoy drinking tea, take a relaxing warm bath with a book, or take some over the counter pain medication and use a hot water bottle. Feeling debilitating pain is not normal, and might be a signal to consult your physician, as it might be endometriosis.

Are you flying through packages of Super and Super Plus tampons or pads? Chances are that everything is completely normal, but here’s when to get that heavy period checked out.
Most women have a regular menstrual cycle each month with a moderate amount of bleeding that lasts for an average of a week (although this can vary). Approximately 25 percent of women suffer from heavy bleeding are not aware that they’re losing too much blood. Bleeding that occurs more than every three weeks, bleeding after sexual intercourse, or between periods is also considered to be abnormal. Those who lose more than two to three tablespoons of blood during each period are likely to have heavy periods from Menorrhagia, which can be due to a number of causes. Although there are a number of causes that can lead to heavy bleeding for women of different ages, it’s important to discover the underlying cause to receive proper treatment.
Do Women Ovulate Before their Periods?
Ovulation, or the process where a mature egg is released from the ovary to prepare for implantation and pregnancy, is a regular occurrence during your menstrual cycle. Most women ovulate once per cycle (about every 28 days, with some variability), and your body alternates which ovary gives eggs. This typically happens a couple weeks before your period if you have a regular, 28-day cycle. However, the egg will spend about a week traveling through your fallopian tubes before finding your womb and implanting itself in your endometrial lining (the layer that is shed when you have your period). In other words, you do ovulate before your period, but it typically happens a couple weeks to ten days before.
Across the board, our answer is probably “Too Long.” But here’s a quick guide to how long a typical period lasts and what factors can change the length of your period.
How Long Do Women’s Periods Last?
When you are trying to figure out long your period ought to be lasting, it can be tricky to find a definitive answer. It is hard to find a good answer because periods can vary so much from woman to woman. If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a hundred times, Every. Single. Woman. is different. Each individual woman has her own unique cycle that may be unusually long, short, heavy, or light. Though there can be some differences between different women, most menstrual cycles follow the same general rhythm, you know, like a really talented marching band.
As women, we’re used to all kinds of vagina issues. Having an irregular menstrual cycle from time to time is probably not a big deal, and you typically know what’s “normal” for your body. For instance, you can decide to use Super tampons if you feel your flow is a bit heavier than normal. However, knowing how to tell if there is a reason to be concerned is important. Periods are not always like clockwork (and are literally almost never like clockwork) and can sometimes be quite unpredictable. Studies show that approximately 30% of women have irregular menstrual cycles during their childbearing years.
