Period

Ok so I'm only 26 years old. And I have always kept up with my periods and every period I have had cramps an the blood flow was very consistent. But my recent period was so weird the first day of my period I didn't bleed I saw brown discharge every time I went to the bathroom. The next day I started to bleed but it was nothing compared to my usual periods. The blood flow wasn't heavy or consistent and I had no cramps at all. Could something medically be wrong with me.

hi was just trying to get second openings before i go to the doctor. i stopped using my ring birth control, maybe around june-august 2019 i can’t remember, maybe just june - july. bc it was messing with my periods. iv been having good periods meaning they’re red and heavy like before , but haven’t been tracking them until october. my last period was october 12th, lasted 4-5 days. i don’t know my cycle, bc i don’t understand it still. on the 18th i thought i was getting my period bc i wiped and there was a little light red blood, looked fresh. went back to check and there was brown mucus discharge, i had brown on my pad instead of blood. i thought i was getting my period, i cramped a little bit on the second night, i took two pregnancy tests, on the 17th and 18th both negative, still just getting the brown mucus , in on my 3rd day of period sometimes i wipe and there may be nothing or I’ll wipe and it’ll have that brown mucus discharge. someone please give me their opinion.

Brownish discharge is usually old blood.  If you have had sexual intercouse without using a condom you may also have come in contact with sexually transmitted infection.  

so, i am a 17 year old girl and my periods normally last for 7/8 days. however, this time my period came just a few days earlier than expected and it was quite light flow and dark brown colour, becoming heavier on the second and third days. i thought this was normal as it may be old blood. Then three days later, my period became red and fluctuated from heavy/medium. i am on my seventh day and it is still medium flow and red. should i be worried? what food helps?

I recently moved to college and my last two periods would start in the morning and end by the evening. They would continue until the end of my period. I’m not sexually active. And my periods start and end when they should they just aren’t regular throughout the week

I’m 17 and my periods have never been regular. I’ve been keeping it secret because I don’t want to cause any extra expense to my family. Anyways, why aren’t they regular? I know there are many factors and I am a bit overweight, but not extremely, is that part of it?
