    My menstrual cycle has always been irregular, since I started at 11, I'm 22 now. It has differed between 26-45 days and period usually lasts 5-8 days. But it's always been the same. Dark brown discharge for a day or two at the beginning and end and bright red for 3-6 days in the middle with gut wrenching cramps and clots through the whole thing, midol usually doesn't do anything for me. The only other time it has been completely different is when it was about twice as heavy and crampy, when I had my miscarriage 2 months ago, didn't even know I was pregnant until it was too late. This period though, starting at 42 days and currently on day 6 of my period, has been dark brown the whole time, almost black at points, way lighter than normal and almost no red. Cramps are about half what they normally are and a few times it's felt like my uterus was... shivering or twitching? Not sure how else to explain it. I'm not using contraceptives and I've been with the same partner for years. We've been trying to conceive for almost 6 months and I'm hoping this is finally it.
    I know that brown blood is supposed to be just 'old blood'. But I've never had this much brown and so little red.
    I'd also like to know if anyone has used or knows about Fertilitea? It's a tea blend that's designed to help fertility. The reviews on amazon are all great and I'm seriously considering purchasing it.
    Thanks in advance!
