Old period blood: One of the most common reasons for black vaginal discharge is that old blood was stuck in the cervix. In general, the darker the blood is, the longer it has been in the cervix, and it is normal for some blood from menstruation to take days or even weeks to make its way out of the vagina. Sometimes A tampon can be left in the vagina and it will have black blood and a foul discharge.
