  2. Last night/early hours of this morning, I dreamt I was in a conversation with this woman, and she’d asked me why I’d moved from my present neighbourhood to one in the dream. I didn’t want to tell her why; which was, it was suggested to me by my downstairs neighbour – and at the same time he suggested it, he was taking me in his car into the town centre to my new place. I soon found out I’d already lived there a few years ago, it was a women’s hostel. I didn’t like it there, this time. I’ve moved around enough in my life.

    The women asked me why am I moving from such a nice area to live in the hostel. Then just casually, she said ‘would you like to see my vagina’, I declined, thinking what sort of question is that!

  6. I’m over 40 and my period stopped 3 months ago. I dreamt I was sitting in a place that looked like a classroom when I got my period. I looked and the man sitting saw me do that.
    All of a sudden I was standing at the bottom of a staircase but wearing a panty liner when I got my period.

  7. I had a dream that I was taking a shower and that suddenly a very large white books clot came out of my vagina and I was just standing there looking at the blood clot on the floor. But no other bleeding or anything. In my dream I felt as if though I knew I was on my period. But I had no red blood coming out, no pad and the white blood clot was huge like the size of a small watermelon. What could this possibly mean?

  10. I’m pregnant and for the past two nights I’ve been dreaming about bleeding very heavily. I probably wake up a couple of times during the night, but it goes back to the same dream. But it was like I was supposed to have my period because I had tampons. I don’t know if it has something to do with after my pregnancy or if something is going to happen during. It’s been worrying me a lot.

  11. my friend and I were running happily and we went into a restroom. Instead of a pad I had toilet paper, it was long and it was all covered with blood. Then the restroom turned into a hospital room where one of my friends from back in high school was rushed into the room because she had an injury and was loosing a lot of blood. The table looked like the type they have the morgue to keep the blood from spilling. Can someone tell me what this means?

  12. I dreamt that another woman (my X’s sister-in-law) sitting on a material bench got her period.

  16. Hello, I’m going you may be able to shed some light on a reoccurring dream I’m having. The basics of the dream I’m in public, most usually a very large religious gathering of thousands and I realize I’m having my menstrual cycle. It’s extremely heavy and I’m frantic to find a ladies room. I’m very embarrassed and become lost. Any bathroom I find is either full, made it off clear walls, and there is never any paper. What can this possibly mean? Thanks for any help

    • Hi simply means u r running from some problems in ur life and u are not able to get help of anyone..this is the toughest tym of ur life and i are not willing to take help becoz of the situation …if you are married chances of separation and divorce…

    • I do not see the dream like you are running from your problems. To me this dream is very much about being a woman, femininity, and the issues women face in society. Many religions and cultures portray women and femininity as unclean or lesser, especially in regards to menstruation. This dream signifies to me that you are in the midst of these pressures and feel unable to escape them or ‘get clean,’ being a woman. It is important for women to honor their femininity and understand that it is not lesser or unclean in the face of these pervasive and subversive attitudes towards women. Feeling lost and embarrassed in dealing with women’s issues is common in everyday life and teaches us all that we should show more respect and value to what women experience and are capable as well as increasing education and communication. Embrace your femininity and surround yourself with people who respect men and women equally. Menstrual blood also signifies fertility, physically but also creatively and spiritually. It could be that you are overflowing with creative and spiritual energy and are not finding an appropiate outlet in your current context.

    • It might mean that you are trying to find something (most likely peace or acceptance) with a group of people, but when it comes down to the basics, you just cannot don’t it and don’t know what to do about that.
