Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community!

Sometimes during periods, some women will experience what is known as spotting. It can be common at the beginning as well as the end of a menstrual cycle for some. It sounds like the dark brown blood is spotting. Spotting is not something to be concerned about as it is common for many women.

However, if you are still concerned, you can always visit your doctor to learn more.

I hope this has helped! Please let me know if you have further questions.
