My period occured regular and normal through the 14th-20th. I went to the washroom today (24th) and there was a light blood stain on my underwear and in my urine when I wiped. It has gone away, but when I wipe my urine is still darker, which makes me believe this is still going on. The only thing to touch that area recently is toilet paper. I have a light cramp as well, but that may be in my head too, if you know what I mean. Should I be concerned? When should I act on this? Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

After your period, your body tends to discharge old blood as well. I have had entire periods with just old blood, very light and dark-ish in coloring.

If it is not old blood, it could be oddly dark colored discharge, so you should get it checked out by your gyno. It may be an infection.

Hugs and Kisses***
