Is Menstrual Blood The Same As Normal Blood.

By - - [ Opinion ]

I brought up this topic between me and my roommates today and it nearly caused quarrel between medical and non medical students.

So please I would love to hear your opinions towards this topic,some say they are different because period blood is made up of some compositions different from the normal blood flow in the body.

Please your opinions are urgently needed.

No,menstrual blood is not the same as normal blood. Menstrual blood is a result of unfertilized egg. During menstruation,you cannot say ladies are losing blood because the unfertilized egg is just finding its way out and making way for another egg.

Period blood is different from the normal blood flow in the body. 

Period blood comes from the gradual break down of the uterine wall. (When there's no baby to be nurtured there)  It is thicker than that of the normal blood in the body.

Yes menstruation blood is quite different from normal blood oozing out of the body why and how? Menstruation blood contains all components of normal blood and with non fetilized egg or ovum and some with a bacterial infections, why blood itself oozing out of the body contains only it's components and some with bacteria infections.

I am not a medical practitional but i would actually say its different ( or part of normal blood though not exactly) because normal blood is still the one that is supplied to the womb but when a woman does not engage in unprotected s8x for the semen to fertilize the egg then it comes out as menstrual flow.

My opinion  though.

Well I've performed haemtological analysis on it before. With the way it is i think menstraual blood should be different from normal blood though they should be close in their haemological composition.

They are definitely different because doing menstruation, the blood contains dirty particle which are needed to be flush out from the female body hence making it differential from the normal blood . it's like saying stagnant/mud water and spring water are the same.

Normal blood is different from menstrual blood in that normal blood is made up of red cells,white cells,platelets,etc while menstrual blood is mostly made up of the sheddings of the linings of uterus,the non fertilized egg and other components that the womb had prepared to receive a fertilized egg but didn't happen

No, menstrual blood is different because its made up of other constituents which the normal blood doesn't have. The menstrual blood may contain particles of the broken eggs causing the mensuration.

No the blood that runs through the vein is not the same that runs through the organs of the female respiratory system. The monthly discharge from females are not the same blood that runs through the veins they are the blood that comes from the cleansing of the female organ such as womb.

No its is not because;

The normal blood is the  "purest of all blood" is fresh out of the bone marrow, i.e. in your circulatory system.

Menstrual blood is a combination of blood, some mucous, and dead endometrial tissue.

No, they are not the same thing. I'm a medical student, so I can well. The menstrual blood contains ruptured Ovum which is the egg that was not fertilized  by a sperm. The menstrual blood contains blood, serum, tissue series etc

OK am not a science student but I don't think menstrual blood is the same as the one running through the veins, in some ladies cases their menstrual blood could be darker than the normal red blood,some thicker some even lighter..so I don't think it's the same.

They're not the same, menstrual blood is usually a bit darker because it is not just discharge, it has some dirt in it. The discharge cleans out some stuff from a girl's system, unlike normal blood which is just a discharge from a cut or an accident

Menstrual blood is obviously different from normal blood in color,composition.Menstrual blood is thick,sometimes dark brown as a result of unfertilized egg and it also flushes out dirt in the body

Lets take it like this, when a expecting a child, clothes are bought, baby stuff is bought to welcome the newborn. But if for any reason, things go sour, those preparations are a waste..The same thing goes with menstruation.. When eggs are released, the body makes preparations expecting something new (zygote), expecting to accomodate a new proccess.. But if after 28 days or so nothing happens, no sperm fertilizes released eggs, the body destroys those preparations to start  the cycle afresh.. At this point the released eggs are dead and need to be let out therefore they mix with blood, those eggs will not not just come out dry so for easy passage there is blood ..Menstruation colud be abnormal if there is excess blood or if it exceeds normal period.. that is when the person now looses enough blood no longer mixed with dead eggs.. So in menstruation blood is lost too but the amount is automatically regulated by the body and it is little beacause of other compositions.

I will say the two aren’t same. While the normal blood comprises of plasma, white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets the menstrual blood contains only half of the normal blood and unfertilized egg and other toxins that are passed out as a result of th lining of the uterus. So we can see that both bloods are not the same.

In my own opinion on this is that they are both different from each because menstrual blood is the dirty flow from the female body while blood those not have any dirt

 menstrual blood is not the same thing as normal blood in the sense that the menstrual blood contain some  they contain some waste materials from the urinary gland from  the reproductive tract  that is when the Egg does  the does not fertilize it breaks and comes out in forms of blood flow I admit it's not a normal blood thanks

I don't think menstral blood is the same with normal blood because menstral blood is composed with different dead cells coming out of the body. They have the same colour but different.

The menstrual blood is entirely different  from the normal blood.  The menstrual blood comes as a result  of unfertilizes egg (no spermatozoa to fertilize it)  while the normal blood contains blood cells,  plasma. 

But any way a little percentage  of blood is lost during  menstruation, but its just a little, it gets replace by itself before another 29days. 

So a little amount  of blood is In the menstral blood

I don't think there's anything that makes menstrual blood different from any other blood that flows from the body of a female other than where the blood is flowing from. 

Whatever this dimensions this argument is taken I demand that it should be dynamic and scientific. That's only when it will make sense.

Though the normal blood and the menses are the same in colour but there is a different. Normal blood doesn't contain any lining. While the menstral blood contains an unfertilized egg or uterus linning.

Menstrual blood is far different from normal flow blood. Yes. Let me take this for instance. If a person got an accident and losses much blood, the person might give up during the process compare to the amount of blood we women losses for 5days in a month, so if it is the same, tell me why women won't die every month.

Menstrual blood is different from normal blood. Menstrual blood is mainly composed of blood, old parts of uterine tissue, cells from the mucus lining of the vagina and bacteria making up the vaginal flora. Menstrual blood is different from normal blood due to its composition and its physical properties. For example menstrual blood does  not coagulate inside or outside the body.

No.menstrual blood and normal blood are not the same.menstrual blood are the unfertilized egg that has not been fertilize.they find their way out to create space for the next coming eggs so they are not the same.

I won't say that they are the same because from my knowledge of menstruation.. I believe that the blood is as a result of unfertilised egg so I don't think it is the same with the lady's normal blood.

The answer to this question is NO...because the menstrual blood that flows out of the female's system is as a result of an unfertilized egg in the body which has now become a waste material which has to be removed from the body if not will cause harm to her ...the blood that flows in our system travels around and is no way connected to the menstrual blood ejected every month

Menstrual blood and period blood are similar but different. Though I do not menstruate as I am a man, I know that menstrual blood flows when the ovaries are not fertilized, while regular blood flows when part of the body(except nail and hair) is cut. This, among other things, clearly differentiate menstrual blood from blood itself.

Is menstrual blood the same as normal blood. - By Gideon James - 2019-09-26 19:53:55

 No because menstral blood is a combination of blood, some mucous, and dead tissue. So, menstral blood is a combination of sloughed off stromal and glandular tissue, broken down vascular cells and blood, and, no, it is not highly oxygenated, it's kind of darker than normal blood. It doesn't carry any "decoded DNA".

Nahhh, menstrual blood is different from normal blood. I'm not a science student but what I know is that what forms the menstrual blood is inside the egg and your normal blood is outside your egg. I hope this helps

Menstruation is not the same as the normal blood, because menstruation occurre in every woman at the beginning of the month or the end of the month.

Again menstruation is something that God created as nature. 

While normal blood occurred as the result of accident.

Menstrual blood isn't the same as normal blood. Menstrual blood is the removal of unfertilized eggs from the body as waste to create space for upcoming eggs so I don't think that's is there same as normal blood because normal blood doesn't even look like a menstrual blood and they don't have the same composition

Menstrual blood is a blood but not the blood in our body, it is a mixtures of other substance in the body it is the washing down of the unfertilized egg released from the ovaries. It is not the real blood in our body because women do not have such amount of blood to be loosing every months.

Of course menstrual blood is different from normal blood in the sense that menstrual blood contains impurities that are not suppose to be present in a woman's body also it was previously the ovary of a woman which had to be flushed out for another one to replace it.

The normal blood is just a carrier of oxygen in the body system to aid with gaseous exchange.

Although both might be similar in looks sometimes but they are different in nature.

The menstrual blood and the normal blood are not thesame. The menstrual blood ia a waste product. Its an egg which was not fertilized so it shed its walls. There is no oxygen in the blood while the normal blood has oxygen in it.

Menstrual blood is Far different from normal blood,

Menstruation is the monthly flow of blood(unfertilised egg) 

Inorder words menstruation is just the removal of unfertilized blood 

When not removed could cause damage to the body 

Normal blood is different from menstrual blood!!
