Menstruation, Medlineplus:"Menstruation, or period, is a woman's monthly bleeding. Every month, your body prepares for pregnancy. If no pregnancy occurs, the uterus sheds its lining. The menstrual blood is partly blood and partly tissue from inside the uterus, or womb. It passes out of the body through the vagina. Periods usually start around age 12 and continue until menopause, at about age 51. Most periods last from three to five days.
You should consult your health care provider if
You haven't started menstruating by age 16
Your period suddenly stops
You bleed excessively, or for more days than usual
You suddenly feel sick after using tampons
You bleed between periods
You have severe pain during your period"

Menstruation, Overview, Wikipedia.org:"Eumenorrhea denotes normal, regular menstruation that lasts for a few days (usually 3 to 5 days, but anywhere from 2 to 7 days is considered normal).[2] The average blood loss during menstruation is 35 millilitres with 10-80 mL considered normal;[3] many women also notice shedding of the endometrium lining that appears as tissue mixed with the blood. (Sometimes this is erroneously thought to indicate an early-term miscarriage of an embryo.) An enzyme called plasmin — contained in the endometrium — tends to inhibit the blood from clotting. Because of this blood loss, premenopausal women have higher dietary requirements for iron to prevent iron deficiency. Many women experience uterine cramps, also referred to as dysmenorrhea, during this time, caused largely by the contractions of the uterine muscle as it expels the endometrial blood from the woman's body. A vast industry has grown to provide drugs to aid in these cramps, as well as sanitary products to help manage menses."

Menstruation, Women's Health, Epigee:"Problems With Your Cycle: Having your period can be a real pain, in more ways than one. If you suffer from menstrual cramps, read up on why women feel such pain every month. You'll also get some handy tips on how to get rid of those menstrual cramps. But cramps don't only occur when you have your period. Women who notice period-like cramps half-way through their cycle may have mittelschmerz, a type of cramping that happens when you ovulate. However, if your menstrual cramps are so intense that you regularly experience severe pain, then you may actually have dysmenorrhea."

Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy, Pulmonary Embolus, Etiology and Pathogenesis:"The most common type of pulmonary embolus is a thrombus that usually has migrated from a leg or pelvic vein. Most of those that cause serious hemodynamic disturbances form in an iliofemoral vein, either de novo or by propagation from calf vein thrombi. Thromboemboli originate infrequently in the arm veins or in the right cardiac chambers. Once released into the venous circulation, thromboemboli are distributed to both lungs in about 65% of cases, to the right lung in 25%, and to the left lung in 10%. Lower lobes are involved four times more often than upper lobes. Most thromboemboli lodge in large or intermediate (elastic or muscular) pulmonary arteries; 35% or fewer reach the smaller arteries."
