I'm on the 2nd day of my period and it doesn't even look like blood; it looks really dark red but pretty much black and it smells something between popcorn and something sweet? Is this normal? I've noticed it did it last month too.. It doesn't smell like a period should..Am I Crazy?Answer Question

It's hormones also secreted in your menstrual blood so you may be having some hormal imbalances or not eating properly. Eating an organic diet can provide the right balance and reduce the hormones that are typically found in non-organic foods. Take a daily multivitamin complete with minerals (usually including calcium, selenium, magnesium, etc). Ensure you're not overly stressed and get regular exercise. Even a few minutes of walking can trigger the right chemicals you need in your blood to keep it balanced. One way to make sure you keep it balanced is by using a calendar to assign diff types of exercise to days and preparing balanced menus/meals in advance that are easy to reheat/prepare so you don't have to think about it too much when you're hungry and tempted to grab whatever.
