If she’s been menstruating for a while, she knows what her menstrual flow should look like. With this in mind, she might want to keep track of light or heavy bleeding and any changes in color and texture, such as blood clots. She should report anything unusual – in terms of length of her period, amount of flow or the way it looks – to her doctor.
She’ll also want to note any unusual vaginal secretions that occur during the month. She may very well notice a clear or white secretion at midcycle – this is an indication that she is ovulating. As always, if anything abnormal appears, it is best to see a doctor.
