Re: why is my period dark brown

My GYN told me this years ago. I have been seeing her for about 15 years. That just means the tissue is Older. It's completely normal. When you get your period you aren't actually "Bleeding" it's mostly nutrient tissue that grows in your womb there is actually only a small amount of actual "blood".
