My period blood is normally bright red but has been a black red the whole time. It has lasted for three weeks and counting. What should I do?

Old blood. the darker the blood is basically the older it is. Most likely you aren't ovulating regularly and as a result have prolonged breakthrough bleeding. Its time to see a gynecologist. If you don't have one at least call your family physician tomorrow and explain the number of days you have been bleeding so either something can be done or they get you in with GYN. Read more...

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...

So long as you reset back to a normal 28 day cycle there is nothing to be concerned about. If you continue to have irregular periods then see your GYN. Read more...
