Menstruation: Quantity of blood
Again, every girl is different. You may feel like you’re bleeding a lot, but remember that the average amount varies, with some women losing about 3 tablespoons of blood and others 1/3 of a cup during an entire menstrual cycle. If you think you’re losing more than that, are bleeding through even the most absorbent Maxi pad, or feel sick, you don’t have to grin and bear it. Talk to your doctor.
