Hi, I am so glad I can came across this. It is good to know that it is normal because I have it happen all the time..pretty much with every period now. It freaks me out sometimes because it is so gross. I thought there was something wrong with me...it is good to know that it is nothing serious. I guess then maybe my periods are too heavy. I went off the pill about 9 months ago and my periods have been crazy every since then. They are never on time..I never know when they are coming or going. I get a lot of brown discharge and clotting. I am going to the GYN at the end of August and she may suggest me going back on the pill I suppose. Thanks for the info!
