For the past 3 months my period has been coming later and later. It used to come between the 15-17. Like clockwork ever since having DD (19 months ago). This was the only time I can remember my period ever being regular.
Anyway about 3 months ago I stressed out because the 16th had rolled around and no period, the 17th came and still no aunt flo. It came on the 18th( I've been writing my dates down on a calender so I can know lol).
The month after another day later and the month after that on the 20th. This month I didn't get my period until today and I don't even think its a period.
I started cramping like no body's business early this morning. I mean extreme back pain and I wanted nothing more than to lay down. I figured I better get to the bathroom and put on a pad only to be shocked with:
Panties full of brown gunk!! WTHeck is all that?!?! I mean BROWN. No hint of red anywhere. Looks like sticky mud!! I called my doc and he says that it is probably old blood and it's nothing to be too worried about.
I have never seen my period that color until the very end of my cycle and even then there were still hints of RED. What is this?? I am still cramping so bad I want to cry. When I stand I am hunched over due to the back pain... I mean I feel like I've been doing squat thrusts with a couch on my shoulders. BACK PAIN!!
Here I am HOURS (9+) later and nothing more than a huge brown pool of WTFudge on my pad??
Anyone else ever have this issue?

I don't know how old you are and how many children you have and how you had them. It could be many different things. Talk to your doctor, or perhaps a different doctor if you are in that much pain and your current doctor does not seem to care.
