Exclamation Please help! I need answers.

Well for starters I am 14. So today I went to the bathroom and suddenly I found what looks like black tar? But it was blood, and it wasn't absorb in my underwear . There was also no red blood anywhere, so i haven't concluded that its my period. I fear this may be something serious but I'm not sure and I'm too embarrass to ask my mother. Can someone please help me insure that this is nothing I should be worried about or something I should be worried about.

Re: Please help! I need answers.

When vaginal bleeding is very slow, it turns brown or black from exposure to oxygen. If you haven't had a period yet, this may be your first. Sometimes you get this spotting for the first day or two before outright bleeding occurs. Sometimes with a first period, you get just the dark spotting and that's all until next month. I would wash your undies in cold water after putting hydrogen peroxide on the spots. When blood is present, the peroxide will foam up. I would wear a light pad to protect your undies until it stops, and let your Mom know you think you have started your period so she can help you get what you need and answer any questions you have.
