  • Call your Dr. right away and ask him/her. Brown blood is old blood and could be from anything. Bright red blood is a sign of trouble. Also if you cant get a hole of your Dr. because of the Holiday you can call any hospital emergency room and speak with a nurse.

  • OB/GYNs usually have someone on call for such emergencies. Don't panic. It could be something simple. Take a deep breath and stay calm and make the call. Some hospitals won't let ER nurses talk to patients on the phone anymore but it's worth a try; however, they don't want the liability so plan on them telling you to come in and get checked.

  • Typically brown blood is "old blood" and isn't an issue, it's only if it's red that you need to worry. However, if you're worried then call your doctor and talk to the triage nurse who can direct you on what is and isn't normal and if you should go to the ER
