Periods are tough. I mean, you experience stomach cramps, backaches, food cravings and so many emotions in just a couple of days. 

But there are a few women who not only bleed through their vaginas but also through their eyes like crying tears of blood, during their periods. 

After a 25-year-old married woman from Chandigarh was rushed to the hospital with bleeding eyes, the doctors were surprised to see her condition.

She shared that she wasn’t experiencing any pain but the same thing had happened a month before. 

The woman was subjected to several ophthalmological and radiological investigations, all of which came out to be normal.

The doctors probed a bit more and realized the tears came during her periods and reached a conclusion. 

As it turns out, there’s a rare condition that some women experience during mensuration called ocular vicarious menstruation.

 In this condition, a person can experience bleeding from extragenital organs (organs un-related to or away from the genitals.) 

The woman was prescribed oral contraceptives which had a mix of both, estrogen and progesterone.

When followed up after 3 months, she shared she didn’t experience any such episodes anymore.

Looks like the grass is not greener on the other side this time.
