    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Abnormal Bleeding

    I did not have a menstrual cycle last month. This month I have been discharging dark brown to almost black blood. It is not time for me to have started menstruation this month. The discharge has been consistent.
    I have been on the same birth control for several years. Is this a problem others have had? Is this something that I should be concerned about and making an appointment to see my doctor?

    Yes, a consistent discharge of dark brown to black blood isn't normal and needs to be looked into medically.
