What is the significance of brown blood during a woman's period?

Answer

Blood during the menstrual cycle can be red, pink, brown, and in some cases, even black. If you are bleeding blood that is brown in color, this is a completely normal occurrence that happens to almost every woman at some point. Brown blood during your period is often referred to as, 'old blood'. This is because it is usually blood that did not pass during the last menstrual cycle. If the brown discharge happens frequently outside of your menstrual cycle and if it is painful, you should see a doctor to make sure it is not something serious.
