Is brown blood normal for a period??

Since about a year ago all the periods I've had are light and brown. I haven't seen any red blood in a long time, is this normal???

  • I would be a little concerned. How much of it are you seeing? Just a spot, or a light flow of the light brown?

    I normally have a little brown discharge before the red, but I almost always have the red (two periods ago there was only a few spots of it, but there was red.)

    I would talk to your doctor.

  • Brown blood is old blood. I have it once in awhile with my periods but not every period. I would mention it to your doctor.
