What is a Fake Period - "Period Without Blood"

Imagine a world with periods without the mess and the blood. Wooo isn't this an ideal day in women's menstrual life. #Period is a word directly associated with blood. Whether your period is late or the color of your period blood seems off, it's completely normal to wonder if everything is OK down there. 

Though we all freakout on every little irregularity, chances are, you're probably fine even if you have had irregular period or no period at all. But when it comes to a period without blood the odds are different? Firstly Is it even possible to have a period without blood?

Let us first understand difference between #menstruation and ovulation.  Ovulation is when an egg is released from your ovaries to be fertilized, whereas menstruation or the period is the shedding of inner lining of the uterus after ovulation. Because in menstruation one of the parts of body sheds, it is likely to be accompanied with blood. We spoke with our inhouse experts to get answers to all your questions about the likeliness of having a period without blood.

Is it possible to have a period without blood?

It's possible, but rare. You can ovulate and not have a period, and you can also have a period without ovulating. The only way that would happen is if it's your first period, where you might not see the period blood if your hymen is still intact. 

"If you ovulate, it means that your body does release an egg and the egg is on that journey, but you might not have a period," There are multiple reasons ovulation might not sync up with your period, including changes in stress levels or thyroid issues. If you're experiencing this chatting with your doctor to make sure everything's OK is a good idea

On the other hand, you can also have a period, but not be ovulating. This is usually the case when you're on birth control. "When people are on birth control, it suppresses ovulation, so they don't release an egg, But they'll still bleed, but often lighter. That lighter period is called withdrawal bleeding, or a "fake period." If you have a steady stream of hormones in your body, during your period week (where you might take your placebo pills), your body mimics that drop in estrogen and progesterone, which causes the bleeding.
