Yes it is normal. (HOW DO I KNOW) Believe it or not I just went to my G.Y.N not too long ago and asked her the same thing. Her answer was "don't worry it is all part of the cleansing process" I told her how my friend doesn't have the light brown/ dark brown discharge she said " every woman is diff and that even though others may not experience the dark discharge it is still normal "If you ever have any question and no one is online to answer do what I do CALL YOUR LOCAL HOSPITAL, ASK TO SPEAK TO A NURSE AND SHE WILL BE ABLE TO ANSWER MOST QUESTIONS!
That happens to everyone, before, and sometimes after your period.
Instead of asking people you should consult some doctor.May be you are getting it in this form because of its late discharge and it changes its colour and becomes thicker but you should take it seriously unless and until some specialist declares it normal.If you are over weight or you are not careful towards your balance diet then you should also pay attention to that.It can also be a cause.
Chill out girl!!! I just started my period and I get black and brown spots too. My mother said its totally natural and normal. And that it should do that for a while when you JUST start. Your good.
I had sex with my husband two weeks ago. After that I have been having a brown discharge. WHy is that so?
That IS your period! Period's r old blood that's been pasted threw your splean. I had that on my 1st period. Now it's just red blood
I have been having this really dark pasty discharge a couple of days before my period and then it changes to the normal bright red color. My doctor says that it is nothing to worry about because it is likely older blood that is being discharged first. This only started happening when I stopped taking the pill.
