My period is usually dark brown and stringy/clumpy. Is this not normal? Why isnt it bright red and more liquidy?
Progesterone: This could indicate a luteal phase Progesterone deficiency. I suggest seeing a holistic md and getting serum testing of your hormone levels during days #19-21 of your menstrual cycle to see if you have adequate Progesterone during that time. If you do not, you may benefit from supplemental Progesterone during the second half of your cycle. ...Read more

My period is a dark brown color when I wipe I see red but on my pad its dark brown, it not heavy either..Why is this happening, what is it?
Light bleeding: The longer blood has been out of the blood vessels, the darker it becomes. Brown blood on your pad just indicates that the blood has been out of your bloodstream longer. It is not worrisome. ...Read more
If my bleeding on placebo week is very light compared to usual, could that be implantation bleeding? It's not pink, but it is brown/ red sometimes.
More likely pills : If you're taking your birth control pills correctly you shouldn't have implantation bleeding since the chance that you are pregnant is very low. The low dose pills in use today do not stimulate much growth of the uterine lining and so periods are generally much lighter and commonly become lighter over time as you continue using the pills. Hope this helps. ...Read more

It is day 6 of my period And it is light. But there is clear stretchy discharge mixed with bright red blood. Could I be ovulating now. Irregular perio?
More information plz: Are your periods regular (frequency, length, amount, duration)? You are not likely ovulating right now. Ovulation occurs 14 days prior to your period (day 14 of a normal 28 day cycle). Are you on birth control pills or any other contraception?

Need pregnancy test: Make sure you are not pregnant.Get a more detailed answer ›
Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. Sounds like this is just a light period. ...Read more
My period is always dark brown in colour. Even on first days and consecutive days. I get red tinges but it's mostly dark brown clots. Is this normal?
Yes: It sounds as if your period is quite light. Dark brown blood is blood that is a little bit older (the blood has had time to oxidize). Are you on hormones and that's why you're period is lighter? So long as your cycle is regular, likely everything is fine. ...Read more
Is it common to have spotting during ovulation. Discharge looks white and creamy but on pad it looks brown. Is this normal?
Can't say.: Implantation bleeding doesn't occur very often. Brown discharge is normally due to deoxygenated , old blood being released. Would anticipate implantation to occur in advance of your period. ...Read more
