I'm 15 and I got my first period mid December 2013, and my second on May 7th 2014. On 3rd June I got this brown blood and I want to know if this was my period or not and why I got this old blood rather than a normal period? It was like a really very light period and lasted 7 days (like my other 2 periods). But it was brown so i'm guessing it was old blood?
Thanks in advance

Hi blossomapple, welcome to Scarleteen! When we first start our periods, they can be really irregular: in timing, as you've already found out, but also in how long they last and what the flow is like. There is also a thing called "spotting" that can happen, which is light bleeding that happens between periods. So, this could have either been your actual period, or just some spotting between periods. We have a great article all about menstruation that I highly recommend checking out if you haven't already!
