Dark brown period??? Sorry for the TMI

My period started today, and its a very dark brown, almost black color. I tried googling it and everything I read said this happens towards the end of the period. But I just started today. So I'm worried/confused. Help!

  • Oh and I didn't get any of my normal pre-menstrual symptoms like sore breasts or anything

  • Before my ablation, I would spot brown for a few days before my period. That was normal for me.

  • The dark brown is normal for me before my period, as well. Is it a lot of just spotting? If it's a lot, I would see your doctor - just spotting, I wouldn't be too concerned.

  • Nothing that major to worry about. You might get it from stress or not eating properly. Be sure to take multivitamin daily and eat a lot of leafy vegetables like kale and spinach. Cream of wheat as a breakfast is also good for extra iron. Also be sure to stay hydrated to flush out your system better.
