Im 19 and have always had irregular periods. A few months ago a had brown discharge for a few weeks then a period i think, im not sure. Now i have this brown discharge again and no period. Is this normal??
This is all a result of the irregular bleeding you are having. When there are only small amounts of blood to shed, it can undergo degradation and be a darker color. Heavier bleeding like a period is usually a brighter red. The more important issue is your irregular bleeding. That is something you should have evaluated.
