Hi,
New here 1st time. I started my period on Oct. 20th, stopped on25th. On the 27th I had very black blood I have been bleeding ever sense, sometimes it's black sometimes brown and once in a while it's red. I also have cramoing with this. I am scared, I have no insurance and am worried what a doctor may find. I have read it is possibly ovarian or uterine cancer. I am 43, think I may be pre menopausal, but don't know for sure. Can any out there help lighnten my mind. If someone out there has had this problem or know someone who has please let me know what the diagnosis was.
Thanks so much

  • hi, I am currently having these same problems....i was on my period last week and stopped bleeding then a couple days later had brown blood and sometimes dark black. I thought it might have had something to do with my birth control b/c I just got back on it and didnt take it regularly enough (forgot some days or took it at different times) but i am starting to get worried b/c its still BROWN! I am only 21 years old (almost 22) so i cannot figure out what it could be....my thoughts were maybe a miscarriage and i didnt even know i was pregnant??? or ovarian cancer?? let me know if anyone knows anything about this please!

  • hi how old are you. I am 43 and have been told I am per menopausal. This has been going on for a long time with me and I hae been concerned I hae endo metrosis also. I have finally made an appointment to get it checked out once and for all. I feel your pain of being worried. I'm worried to death. I will let you know what I find out through the board. I have a hard time finding out information on the internet also. Maybe this will get us somewhere.
