period question

I've had my period be kind of dark-ish and clotty towards the end of my cycle but I just started my period yesterday and it's been like that. Is that normal? What would cause that?

  • darker colored blood could be just old blood. is it stil bright red only darker tint or is it more like brownish? if its brownish that just means old blood your body is getting rid of

  • it's dark brown not red at all. a little pink when i wipe. i don't understand how it can be old blood when i just started my period. also it's not as heavy as it usually is but i'm having worse cramps
