User avatar Hello,
We don't worry much about brown discharge with your periods. It usually just means some old blood is present. But with your hair concerns and bloating, you should consult with your health care provider in case you have a thyroid or other hormonal condition. Testing is the only way to determine for sure.

Best wishes.
