so my period just started. is it normal for it to be brown?
It's normal for period blood to be brown as well as red.
Our periods are as individual as we are. Blood flow isn't exactly the same every time we have a period, especially for the first couple of years following menarche.
Menstrual flow also can look different over the course of the same period. Blood usually starts out bright red and turns darker red or brown toward the end of the period. And differences in texture, like blood clots and tissue, can happen as the uterus sheds its extra lining.
Lots of girls worry about whether their periods are normal. Although differences in menstrual flow are usually nothing to be concerned about, a doctor or nurse can always answer any questions you have. In fact, if your period lasts longer than a week or soaks through more than one pad every 1–2 hours or more than one tampon every 2–3 hours, it's a good idea to talk to a doctor.
Yes, it is normal and then if it is also normal if it is not always like that you body goes through different types of cleansings and so the colors change as well as how light or heavy it is month to month...we are very interestting creatures I think.
yes. then once your body gets used to it, it will change. dont worry
Sometimes. Mine ranged from brown, to bright red to dull red.
