  • Abnormal menstrual period

    Normally I get my period and it lasts me 3-5 days and a constant bleed !
    However my period was due on the 5th March and it came on the 9th,
    There was not enough blood to fill up a Pad i wouldn't even call it a finger tip full which is odd because I normally heavy bleed.
    TMI but my period was more like a brown discharge/blood which is something i have never experienced before and my I stopped bleeding on the 10th and not bled since so effectively my "period" was only 1 day long
    Please try and advise me Thank you ! x
    Just too add,
    My periods are regular as clockwork every month without fail
    Yes I am sexually active
    On ovranette ( Mini Pill) (Meant to regulate my periods!)
    Any help would be great !
    Thankyou

      • Sometimes our bodies are a bit crazy. The brown blood is more than likely old blood. Overtime it gets built up in our uterus and not all of it leaves during our period. Our bodies need to expel it eventually, so sometimes you will get brown discharge. Most often, this is fine and perfectly normal.

        I was on the pill for 11-12 years, and not ALL of my periods, even with the pill, were the same. Sometimes even on the pill, I would skip a month.

        Take a breather, sit back and see what happens this next month.
