Ok, this may sound stupid, but what color is the blood during your period? May be TMI..

Obviously it is red, but is it like super bright? Mine is normally a deep color, like more of a maroon, but the last day I have been spotting super bright blood and I'm worried that it is not normal. I have an IUD, so I do normally spot, but it has NEVER been this color before. Besides the deep maroon color it has only ever been like brownish.

  • Mine is either bright red (like fresh blood...ewww) or it is closer to brown in shade.

  • I am 35 and have had every shade from bright red, to dark brown at some point. I have also asked about it at the OBGYN. As long as you aren't having any other concerns (smells, itching, burning, unusual pain) then the variation of color is completely normal.
