Question: Unusual period

I was 9 days late.....

It was unusually short....

The last day it was so dark, almost black coming out...

Whats the deal?

User avatar Hello,
Usually black means the blood is old so perhaps it pooled for a time before being discharged from your body. I would not be overly concerned with it.
