The onset of menstruation is evidenced by a smaller amount of blood reaching the endometrium, which causes the cells inside die and detach, causing their capillaries to bleed, so the walls of the uterus begin to contract helping the cells dead and blood go outside, within the next 5 days approximately after menstruation the walls of the endometrium begin to recover and swell naturally for a possible pregnancy. You can use a Dicynone  tablet for Capillary bleeding.
