Exclamation Black menstrual blood after using a tampon

My last two periods I have used a tampon and then later that day when I use a pad my blood is black and thick. At the beginning of my period the blood was red and watery. Please help (I have never had sex, if that would change anything)!

Re: Black menstrual blood after using a tampon

Hello, periods can be different every month. It's normal for the blood to be red and watery. Many women have clots in their menstrual blood from time to time. The clots may be bright red or dark in color. Often these clots are shed on the heaviest days of bleeding. The presence of multiple clots in your flow may make your menstrual blood seem thick or denser than usual. Sometimes female's may notice that thier menstrual blood becomes dark brown or almost black as a female near the end of her period. This is normal.

Re: Black menstrual blood after using a tampon

It's only my second day on my period. I do usually have brown blood at the beginning and end of my period but black only when I use tampons.

Re: Black menstrual blood after using a tampon

The black color of what you are seeing in the tampon is called black mucus but really is blood. This is normal.
