Why is my blood dark?
Verified by Dr. Nancy Yen Shipley, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon
Our Answer
What our doctors say
Menstrual blood can change in color through the course of the period and is typically not a cause for concern. The blood can appear dark red to even brown or black, which means it’s oxidized - the same process that turns an avocado brown when it is exposed to air. Periods can start brighter red, and get darker as the period goes on, and can even be light pink at the end. Talk to your doctor if you see gray or white discharge, which could mean more is going on.
