Withdrawal bleeding vs Periods
How will you know whether the bleeding you are having is because of your periods or withdrawal bleeding?
Well, this is very simple to determine.
- Your period cycle occurs at a fixed time that is known to you. If you experience bleeding before the expected date of your periods and you know you have taken any hormonal pills before the date then it should be withdrawal bleeding.
- Usually, the bleeding in withdrawal bleeding is seen to be less if compared to your periods. Also, the bleeding is found to be in black or brown color. This bleeding is painless and sometimes way much painful than periods in some cases.
- Withdrawal bleeding lasts for 2-3 days to a maximum of 5 days. If compared to your periods you already know your exact dates. This will help you to easily determine which is withdrawal bleeding and which are your periods.
Now you know how to determine which bleeding is due to withdrawal bleeding and which one is due to your periods.
