Hello Whulan, Thank you for the question.
At what age did you experience menstruation for the first time? Menstrual disorders can occur in the first few years after the first menstruation due to female reproductive hormones that are not balanced. Menstrual blood does not always continue to be red, sometimes blood comes out brown or black. In many cases, this condition is a normal condition because the color and consistency of menstrual blood can change. Brown or black blood is old blood from past menstruation, which just comes out. These complaints generally do not need to worry if it is not accompanied by other symptoms.
Normal menstruation takes place in the range of 2-7 days. Although it can be caused by hormonal disorders mentioned above, menstruation that lasts for more than 7 days should be watched out because it can be caused by several other medical conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome, myoma, endometriosis, hypothyroidism, blood clotting disorders, medication side effects, and others. Do not hesitate to check your condition to a specialist obstetric and gynecologist if menstrual bleeding does not stop. The doctor will provide further treatment after examining you.
