what are inexpensive ways (not able to take birth control pills) to stop periods forever or at least slow down blood flow during menstration @ age 43?

Less bleeding: The least expensive way is probably Mirena (levonorgestrel) or depoprovera. You could starve yourself or become a serious athlete instead, as low body fat can lead to less menstrual bleeding.

Yes: As the flow lessens, it is normal for menstrual blood to appear brown because it takes longer for the blood to travel out of the vagina.
