period question (tmi!) (piog) (small edit)

hey all, i have a gross question about my period.

Normally, my periods are average flow and very bright red blood. But yesterday and today i've been spotting a very dark brown (almost black). Does anyone know anything about this? Could there be something wrong? It freaked me out. I've had a period for 12 years but i have never experienced this! Please help!

Dark blood means its a little older....my period ends like this. Could you be pregnant?

The one and only time that my period was a dark brown almost black color was when I had a etopic pregnancy. The Dr.s told me that it was old blood. You should call your Dr. and tell them they might want to see you. Good luck.

i stopped bc in late november but have used condoms the 4 times i've had sex since then, so the possibility is low, but i guess a pregnancy is not impossible. i really hope i'm not because im living with my mom right now, but i guess i could use the dark blood as a reason to make a gyno appointment.

I'm not sure if she's pregnant because I've been getting my period for 14 years and my period always has dark blood at the beginning and the end....I don't think I've been pregnant all those times,lol!

i hate to say this because i know so many people would love to have kids, but i really really hope i am not pregnant. right now would be the very worst time EVER for me to have a baby. and for some reason nobody's answering at the dr. office!

The only symtoms that I had were the bleeding just spotting the dark red and every once in awhile like once a day lower stomache pains.
