How does it work ?
According to Dr. Arvigo, the tissues of the vagina are exceptionally porous and absorbent, and the warmth of the steam works to soften and open them. When the herbs are placed in the hot water, their medicinal properties, including volatile oils, are released and carried to the surface of your skin, and to the inside of the vagina, where they are absorbed into the bloodstream and, ultimately, into to the uterus.
The medicinal herbal steam increases circulation, thins mucus, and cleanses the entire reproductive system, allowing it to shed unnecessary membranes and buildup. In doing so, we support the uterus to function at its best, thus reducing the amount of work it has to do, and therefore your discomfort.
Things to be aware of:
Headache: If you develop a headache after steaming this may mean that you are dehydrated. Just like when you spend time in a jacuzzi or full body sauna, it is important to make sure to drink enough fluids.
Less menstral fluid: Cycle maybe shortened by 1 to 2 days ( if not more )
Sensation to Urinate: Sometimes steaming causes sensation to urinate during treatment. The bladder is right next to the vagina. The sensation tends to leave after minutes.

It looks strange and different because its part of the healing process. Cleansing can sometimes be untidy. Ultimately, though, there will be less menstrual fluid passed.
