The color of the blood in your menstrual cycle is not useful or relevant. It reflects how long the blood has been sitting inside your uterus or at the back of your vagina. Red is new. Brown or black blood is older and the blood products have started to break down. Menstrual blood color is not something you need to pay attention to. If your cycles are heavy consider birth control for regulation.

Dr. Ahmad M Hadied answered:

What causes a dark blood flow during menstrual period?

Let me explain

Menstrual
This is simply blood from the lining of your womb that has been present for a day or two before being passed and so which looks darker than the usual fresher blood. This may come and go, but unless you get any other new symptoms linked to your period – in which case tell your doctor – then I would leave things alone here.
