My girlfriend had a vaginal bleeding which is color black. 2 days after it already became like the normal color of blood released during menstruation. We can't determine the 1st day of her menstrual cycle. Is it the day when the color of the blood is black or 2 days after when the color became identical to the color of a normal menstrual blood? Thanks for the answer [Smile]

When bleeding starts, that's when the menses has started. Black blood is often just old blood that has been hanging around in the uterus for a while. Having dark brown or black blood come out during menstruation is not unusual.
