I'm wondering why is my menstrual period brown from the start? Why am I not flowing, only shows when cleaning myself from after a bathroom use? Is this considered a period? Why is there a odor? Last but nt least...why is the blood brown from the beginning if its considered stale blood?
How are you? Are there other symptoms present? Any change in the vaginal odor or discharge warrants further evaluation by a gynecologist to rule out infection. It is also important to rule out bleeding associated with gynecological conditions like polyp, myoma, etc and you may need to have imaging studies like ultrasound to rule these out. Take care and do keep us posted.
