The woman informed the doctors that she had experienced the same problem a month ago as well. She also told the doctors that the bloody tears are not causing her any pain or discomfort.

The doctors began diagnosis and conducted various tests to determine the cause of ocular bleeding.

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.

The doctors prescribed the woman some oral contraceptives containing a combination of estrogen and progesterone. The woman said that she did not experience tears of blood after a three-month follow-up.
