A member asked:

Strange period, 3 days b4 date, 1st day cramps with small amt of brown discharge that turned bright red and stopped after a few hrs. 2nd day med bleeding with clots and cramps, 3rd day brown discharge. could this be a normal period? usually 5-6 days

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Abnormal "period": If pregnancy is possible, get a serum HCG test to be certain about pregnancy. Sometimes a clot will be large enough to block the flow of menstrual blood, and when the clot is pushed out by uterine contractions, the flow will increase briefly. If the test is positive , see your gyn physician to make sure pregnancy is not outside the uterus (ectopic), which will need immediate attention.
