    Before I went on the pill I saw that fairly frequently. It seems a bit odd, but it's normal. Getting your period isn't just a matter of absorbing coloured fluid like they show on the commercials!

    Yeah - basically it's the first time that your body is cleaning itself out. So it may be darker, thicker and clottier than what it normally may be. Don't be surprised if it is like this for the first couple of months.

    You're fine honey. It was a blood clot, they are pretty common.
