Black Discharge Between Periods
For the past two months, my period blood is black in colour, I would also have black/brown discharge between periods?
In general: black or brown discharge suggests old blood--blood that has been retained in the uterus/vaginal tract loses its oxygen (oxygen makes it red) and retains the iron/heme making it appear black. After two months, I think this is worth a trip to your doctor for evaluation. Making sure you don't have an incomplete miscarriage or other menstrual/hormonal problems is important in this instance.Best wishes ...Read more

I have the marina. Regular periods every month.
This time two weeks after period I've had dark brown to nearly black discharge for 3 days now ?
Most likely normal.: The dark brown/black discharge is most likely 'old' residual blood from your vagina. You may have had some spotting and the blood stayed in your vagina for a while. When this happens, the blood looses it's oxygen content and appears dark brown/black. If there is no odor to the discharge then this appears normal. If there is an odor you may have an bacterial infection (bacterial vaginitis). ...Read more

I have a copper coil fitted and have regular periods. although i have noticed a very dark almost black reddish discharge around 3 days before my period. This has only happened for the last 5 months. I have had the coil fitted for 14 months. Is this normal
Coil + discharge: Hi Phillip597 The coil would tend to cause some local irritation of the uterine wall and so a discharge such as you describe is not infrequent. I cannot say for the one you have fitted but most will recommend replacement after 2 years. Yours is 14mo since fitting. It would not be unreasonable to remove it, wait for about 2 - 3 normal cycles thereafter and then re-fit it.thanks ...Read more
I've been on the depo 5 years no periods no problems I'm about a month over due and now i have brown/black bloody discharge with cramps?
Unpredictable: The bleeding patterns with depoprovera are unpredictable. You are right that for some in takes the period away. For others it causes irregular bleeding. There is no "normal" for Depo-Provera users. The longer you are on it the higher the chance of no periods. The Mirena iud may be a better option for you if you want to avoid pregnancy and stop having periods. ...Read more
I have had Mirena coil for over a year and 9 months had abnormal periods (normal) and i am having a brownish black discharge with an unpleasant smell.
Get checked: A discharge with odor is not normal. You need to be checked for an infection, especially since you have an IUD. ...Read more
