my period ended april eigth. and now i have it again [april 15]. i am on birth control for period stuff, and i should be regular now. but honestly that's the LEAST of my worries. a LOT of brown, very dark brown, was all over my underwear. it looked like a bowel movement almost! but it wasn't one. and i don't know what that means! i am pretty scared because of this. i know a brownish color is okay during your period-- but this was very dark, and was almost solid. i am pretty worried, so if you could please try to help me with this it'd be very appreciated. i am sooooooooo freaked out. PLEASE HELP.

Blood for menses comes in all sorts of colors: brown included. For a better idea, think of a healing injury...the blood on those that have scabbed over are brown, too. It's normal. [Smile]

How long ago did you start BC? What form are you using (pill [what kind?], shot, etc)?

It's really common when your body is becoming accustomed to the new levels of hormones that your period will be off kilter for the first few months. The blood being dark brown (especially considering you just finished a period) could very well mean that you still had some blood left from your previous period and that now your body is working to rid itself of that. It's not uncommon to have a regular period from time to time that begins as such.

If you start to have problems that seem to be recurring often, then it's not a a bad idea just to call a heads up to the doctor that prescribed them for you because not all pills work well for all people. But having this happen the first few months on pills is more abut your body dealing with the change in hormone levels.
