Myth 6: You Lose a lot of Blood During Your Period

Hi everyone! Today I’m debunking myth #6.

The myth: You lose a lot of blood during your period.

The truth: The average menstruator only loses about 2 to 4 tablespoons during their whole period!

A healthy period is 3 to 6 days long, starts off moderate or heavy, is a nice vibrant red colour like cranberry juice, it’s clot-free, pain-free, and gradually tapers off.

If you were to measure all of your bleeding from the first day of your period to the last day of your period, a healthy one will be between 30 to 60 ml.

That’s 1 to 2 menstrual cups!

This is why I love my menstrual cup so much. It allows me to measure how much I bleed each cycle.

Cheers! To body literacy!
