    Am 21 yrs old and recently i guess you can say been on my period for 3weeks maybe 4. The first week and a half i spotted but it wasnt a light spotting the next week i it was a heavy bleeding. Then it stopped for about 2 or 3days then I start again for 2days than stopped again and just restarted again. Before it was the normal color of when you get your monthly, now its reddish brown. I want to know if that is normal? I get sharp pains in my abdominal are once in a while also but i think it might be just cramps. It scares me because its the first time this has happened.

    No, this is not normal. Have you considered getting this looked into medically?
