I've always wondered how come we cant donate our period blood?

its going to a waste on our pad, why get poked with shots when it comes right out from us from the period, might as well donate from there, itll probably fill up gallons and gallons!

  • Because it is waste blood from our bodies and it carries away excess unneeded hormones and mucus and tissue. And it has clots and is "shed" which means it starts decaying the minute it is let go even before the body expells it.

  • Having a period is not normal. Do you honestly think its normal for anything to haemorrhage like that? It is your bodies way of ridding itself of toxins.

    You do not need a period to ovulate.

    Periods are abnormal...because we are a nation of toxic food eaters.

  • Simply put because it is not blood, it is uterine lining.

  • A period is the result of your body making a place for a baby to grow each month. when you don't get pregnant, the hormones decrease and it leaves yor body. Unless you want to be pregnant every nine months, be thankful to see it.. It would be nice if it stopped around 40 istead of 50. Regarding donating the blood,I think someone has too much free time on their hands.
