Hi , I'm new to this forum and wanted some reassurance. I'm 51 and haven't had a period since july but today I have all the period symptoms and brown coloured blood , is this normal ? Thanks in advance.

    Hi @Pollyana68

    Welcome to this wonderful group.

    Brown blood is very common, it's the old blood that's just been sitting inside coming out, unless it smells or you are losing a lot over a long period of time it's nothing to be too concerned about.

    It's due to your periods coming to an end and your ovaries no longer producing eggs but still producing blood so it has to leave the body.

    If you are concerned and it doesn't stop then speak to your GP or practice nurse. X
