Menstrual spotting: Dark red spotting after a period is very common at the end of a menstrual cycle. The dark color of the blood is a result of a slower rate of bleeding, which then forms clots and then gets expelled from the vagina at a slower rate than at the beginning of the cycle. It usually does not represent anything harmful. If it continues, seek medical consultation to determine the cause.

Irregular menses: In birth control pill users, or women using a Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD as a method of contraception, or are close to menopause, one day of dark blood can count as a period. If no contraception is being used, it can be a sign of a pregnancy. If you are not using contraception and are sexually active make sure you get a pregnancy test. Light menses can be a sign of an early pregnancy.

Bright red blood: The first day of the menstrual cycle is also the first day of your menstrual period and that is the very first day you observe bright red blood. Brown spotting is not considered a menstrual period. - See more at: http://www. Babymed. Com/menstrual-cycle/when-is-the-first-day-of-my-menstrual-cycle-period#sthash. ZXRAjC7f.dpuf

Visit GYN: Bleeding mid cycle like that is abnormal and needs to be evaluated. There may be dysynchrony of the endometrium or a polyp causing abnormal bleeding that may need to be removed. Although hormonal imbalance is the most common cause of irregular bleeding and can be easily treated with hormonal therapy (birth control).

What does dark blood right before your period mean?

Menstrual spotting: Dark red blood is blood that is bleeding more slowly from the uterus. It has time to combine with oxygen which darkens the color, and sometimes clots. Early spotting is usually normal, and represents the beginning of a cycle, the sluffing off of the uterine lining at a slower rate than mid-cycle where the blood is bright red in color.
