It was after a detailed investigation that the doctors realized that both the times the woman had bloody tears, she was on her periods.

The doctors eventually diagnosed her with ocular vicarious menstruation—a rare condition which is described as "cyclical bleeding occurring during menstruation from extragenital organs".

The cause behind the rare condition is still relatively unknown, however, experts believe endometriosis or the presence of endometrial tissue in extragenital organs can be a factor in developing vicarious menstruation.
