Couldn't find what you looking for?


The last three periods have been extremely strange, they're almost completely brown the entire time, it stays relatively light for about seven days,little to no "normal" clotting but the strange part is that it looks like someone dumped black ground pepper into it. It's enough to be scary, if I had to guess i'd say it was about a table spoon's worth every time I change a pad (light enough to change every 8 hours without problem.). I have had a history of ovarian cysts, starting at age 14 and staying until 17, pill (Ortho-tri) was unsuccessful and with bad side effects-bad enough not to try another pill, at age 18 I had a late growth spurt in which doctors said I "evened out" as far as hormones. 1st day cramps are awful, if midol is taken at the first sign of period cramps stop after one day, if midol is not taken on the first day cramps continue for seven days, even if taken on the second day, midol will have to be taken every day after in order for cramps to disappear.

I just want to know if this is something I should be worried about.


Hey, I see this was posted about a year ago. I was curious if you got an answer. I just started using a menstrual cup, and this is exactly how my blood is right now. I have never had this issue before and it wad pretty surprising to say the least.


Yup, this is what i'v just had, or at least i think it is, more like poppy seeds or sprinkles, weird
