Red/Orange Blood?

What can cause blood to be more orange colored? Recently I notice that my blood has more of an orange tint. This has been something I've noticed for over a month now. The blood is in the same area that would normally be a bright red for me. For example, if I cut myself while shaving my legs, usually the fresh blood is a bright tomato red color. Now, the fresh blood is an orangey red. I haven't taken any new medications (I am only on birth control pill and have been for many years), don't take vitamins, etc. I eat many nutritional bars (which is why I don't take vitamins), but I have been eating the same ones for quite a while. I'm not too sure what else can cause this!

Re: Red/Orange Blood?

I forgot to mention, I know that blood can be brighter/darker depending on its exposure to oxygen, and this has always been the case. I've just never had the more orange tint and usually it's more of a brighter tomato red or darker red. Now it seems orangey red and then of course darker if the blood isn't fresh.
