Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic



Normally the color of menstrual blood is red, if there is associated foul smell, itching, burning sense, then it suggestive of infection.. But if there is no other symptoms only orange then it can be normal... nothing to worry..

Hi Doctor, it is been three months since I have a surgery to remove only the fibroids. After my first menstrual cycle I had 7 days of bleeding which I had to wear pads. It was not heavy, when I went to see my gynecologist he put me on birth control. I began taking it two days before my menstrual period. I can say I do not have my period, but I still have painful cramps. Why do you think because I am very concerned about that.
