Best Answer

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.
