I was supposed to have my period this week but instead i bled like a lot of brown clot things and some pinkish tints and then like a day or a little less of red blood. There is still some spotting now. What is happening, why is my period so weird this month. I am 19, i am sexually active, i am on the pill and i do not use condoms. Does it have anything to do with pregnancy? Does this count as my period or did i miss my period?
Old blood is darker, often brown or even blackish in color. When one is on the Pill you wont bleed nearly as much as off the Pill because part of the way the pill works is to decrease the build up of the endometrium (the lining of the uterus). The main thing the Pill does is to prevent ovulation. If there is no egg cell released there can be NO baby! So no worries, this is normal. It is just some of the changes your body does when you take birth control hormones.
