    Default Bright Red Menstrual Blood?

    I recently started taking the Vitex herb. I've noticed a near immediate change in my period - I was bleeding heavy, dark brown blood and maroon with HUGE clots. I only passed a single clot today, I almost stopped bleeding yesterday, and while today I am bleeding, it's bright, bright red.

    I've never had a period with bright red blood. I googled it and it seemed to be a good thing, but I wanted to know your experiences with it..?

    I've just had a similar experience - I asked a question about it here too, cos I thought I was bleeding from Lap surgery I had done over two weeks ago, because the blood was just so different to my normal period. My doctor assured me it was ok and normal. I'd like to hear others thoughts too, though.

    hi

    Im not on this herb, but this is what my gynae told me: dark colour blood is old blood, but bright red blood is new blood.

    hi i too am on vitex but yet to see af after my childbirth in sept 05.just stopped bf in december 06, so still waiting for af.

    but whenever i have had my af it has always been bright red and sometimes with clots.
    i think it is normal. there have been very few times when my af has been light or pinkish in nature, its always been red or bright red. thank allah for small mercies.

    hope this helps.

    Well I stopped bleeding today, for the first time in months. What a huge relief. I think Vitex is working well for me.

    I've been on it a few days only. It stopped my period almost immediately, and now it's back again. Spotting on and off. I am going to increase my dose by one I think, I'm only taking two a day.
