Nobody ever told me either. I am 27 years old now and I ask the docter years ago after getting pregnant. The blood is brown because it is old blood. There is nothing wrong with you is the answer i got. they say sometimes it just happens if you notice after you get a good flow going its not brown anymore either. And sometimes you may pass blood clots also b/c your body has to get rid of that inner lining BUT i freaked. Just ask your doctor its completely confidential and 100% private.

Totally normal. If you notice when you first start your period it is bright red, and then towards the end of your period, it's brown. Brown blood=old blood, it just means its older! you will be alright!

Brown blood is old blood and sometimes your period will start with brown to get the left over blood from last time out.

This is probably just your period starting late. Often at the start and end of the period the blood is brown in colour.

When you start your period if you have brown, old blood first you count those days as the first day of your 28 day menstrual cycle. You do not have to start counting day one when the blood is red.

Brown blood is just blood that has taken time to leave your vagina so turned brown and mixed with your discharge. Brown blood doesn't mean anything other than that your flow is light so taking time to leave your body. It's normal to see brown discharge at the start and at the end of your period.

Brown red blood 2weeks before period

Dark brown period blood usually appears near the end of your period.

It's still just menstrual fluid. This happens a day or so before you really start bleeding, and it tends to be brown at the end of your period. Older blood turns brown. Your period is more than blood. It's totally normal.

It means that the blood is old. It's usually brown after or b4 your period.

Period blood can be dark brown, light brown, dark red or red. Sometimes your period is brown if it is a light period. Sometimes your period can be brown near the end of your period.

Reddish-brown. Before that you might see a whtish residue.

It is perfectly normal to start your period weeks early and its dark brown. You mostly start with dark brown when you start your period and it turns red.

The brown stuff is known as 'spotting' it is just blood mixing with discharge, it turns brown when it comes in contact with air. This is just the start of your period, you can also get it at other times such as at the end of your period or around ovulation.

User Avatar

Yes, it is normal for a period to have different shades of blood. The brown is blood dried blood and the red is new.

User Avatar

Don't worry it's just old blood (should be getting red in couple of days)

User Avatar

blood turns brown over time. having brown blood just means it is older blood.

User Avatar

It's called discharge its the old blood or new blood... It can happen either before or after you start your period! So if u haven't started yet it probably means u will start soon or its the old blood finishing out your period!

User Avatar

The blood can be reddish-brown to brown. Brown blood just means it's old, not fresh.

User Avatar

dunno what an appendectomy is but it goes brown after your period because old blood is brown :) its just the blood taking its time to get out of you :)

User Avatar

It isn't uncommon for the blood to be brown when you first start your period, especially if you are five days late. If there is a chance that you may be pregnant, a home pregnancy test can be taken.
