Why Bleeding Between Periods can Cause Issues
A normal menstruation cycle lasts from 2-7 days and may have 2 days of heavier bleeding. With a normal period you will lose between 2 and 8 tablespoons of blood (80 ml). If you bleed too often you are losing more blood than you should.
Signs of blood deficiency:
- Pale tongue (color under the white coating)
- Low energy
- Inability to fall asleep easily
Signs of anemia: same as blood deficiency, but the tongue is paler and the sides of the tongue are lighter than the middle)
If you bleed between periods you may:
- Feel fatigued often
- Not sleep well
- Lose interest in sex
- Have a less than normal endometrium wall
- Have Sallow skin (grey and dull)
How Chinese Medicine Sees This Issue
The Chinese Medical solution for benign bleeding between cycles in focused on building up your strength and vitality. Traditional Chinese Medicine says that you are bleeding between periods because your digestive system is not strong enough. Signs of a weak digestive system (any two of the following):
- soft stools
- gas and/or bloating
- no interest in eating in the morning
- slight scalloping on the sides of the tongue
Also, if you tend to chill easily this can drag down your energy. Your power generator (your digestive system) may be overworked and tired.
This lack of vitality can make you have less interest in sex and less energy to support your daily schedule. So the cycle needs to be broken with herbal formulas, as well as food and movement therapy.

Use a Period Tracker App
Many women don’t have regular periods, so you may find it helpful to use a Period Tracker App on your smartphone. It can be used as a menstrual cycle calculator, an ovulation calculator (fertility calendar), and can help you to keep track of irregular periods.
It can even track your cervical mucus, when you have intercourse, and can remind you to take pills, put on a patch, or have an injection.
Put your mind at rest, we know that if a woman bleeds between cycles, she worries that it could be cervical cancer symptoms.
We would like to reassure you that this is only true for a very, very tiny percentage of women. However, we encourage you to check with you doctor to rule out anything serious. This is intended to give you peace of mind.
