how long does brown blood last after period?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Jane Van Dis
17 years experience Obstetrics and Gynecology
Days: Sometimes it can last for 4-5 days. It can be annoying, right, because one has to wear a mini-pad to protect the underwear. Completely normal and not a concern, but quite a nuisance.
