Abnormal Bleeding
An_254842 posted:
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.
