What is considered an abnormal and normal period? I have been experiencing a scanty amount of dark brown discharge with hints of red blood.

Normal period. KatherineA488 ~ a normal period is about 5 - 10 days every 28 day-32 days, using about 1 BOX of pads or 2 tampons a day. There is great variability and this is an attempt at average but differs from person to person. thanks.
