Dark Colored Blood
Went for a pap smear 4 days ago and on my second week starting a new bc but today i see dark colored blood, any thoughts?
Patience: Unfortunately, our bodies are not all the same, and your reaction to a new birth control medication may take longer to alter your cycles than someone else. I don't think it is related to a pap -- which is just scraping the lining. But, ocp take longer to get used to and you may have a few cycles with irregular or breakthrough bleeding. ...Read more

Past 2months my cycle has been abnormal for me starting with a dark brown colored blood with some small clots and tissue like discharge. Is it normal?
Old blood: Dark blood and clots/tissue are most likely old blood left over from your previous cycle and this is not all that abnormal and a common finding in many women.

Dark maroon colored blood in stool. Been going on 10 days. Happens every b.m. lower abdominal cramps, moderate shooting pain (not constant).
Do Not Delay: You need to see your PCP immediately and get a referral to a GI doctor or a colon and rectal surgeon for a rapid GI work up. This is probably some form of colitis and you need diagnosis and treatment quickly before you get much sicker and more anemic. Also if it is something more serious, the earlier the diagnosis the better. 10 days is long enough to wait to see a doctor or go to ER!! Don't wait! ...Read more
