last february my period is late and i've heard about drinking parsley tea and taking a high dosage of vitamin C to induce period so i tried it for 1week. I got my period on march 14 so im expecting my next period on april 14 but i didn't get it. And now it's may 8 and my period is still late but im having a dark brown vaginal discharge for about a week now. It doesn't smell bad and it's not painful or what. Am i okay???? Is it normal???

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Dark brown blood is simply old blood. Its perfectly normal to have during your period. Since you do not have a regular period, you probably have more old blood than fresh blood that your body is trying to purge.
Light or missed periods, usually do not indicate a serious problem. You should watch for frequent, prolonged or heavy bleeding. This can be a sign of something serious.
Doctors usually recommend taking birth control pills to regulate periods. However, its not always necessary to have regular period.
I hope that helps. Let us know if you have any more questions.
