andrea - August 25

I am having a dark and smelly period. It's been like 3 weeks now and it won't just go away. I just want to know if this is normal since i'm already 47 years old now.


lyka - August 28

I'm not sure about this one. I think you should talk to your doctor to make sure nothing more serious is going on with problem.


sheena - August 28

Yes i agree with Lyka. Maybe you should arrange to see your doctor and tell him/her your situation. A simple test maybe needed to track down the cause of this problem.

Dark color of the blood means older blood. But the smelly thing might mean something else. Have it checked.


mimi - August 28

If you're saying it's an old blood, it will definitely smell. Avoid using tampons it will worsen the odor.

unfortunately, you need to speak with a gynecologists to find this out. probably you're going through menopause.

hi andrea, how are you doing? is everything alright now? haven't heard from you anymore...


andrea - September 10

oh...sorry for the late reply...yes i am doing fine now!there is no clear explanation as to what happened because the moment i went to my gyne all the sudden my dark smelly period stopped.thanks anyways, for all who replied my question.


sheena - September 11

so glad to hear that andrea. maybe it was just a part of menopause. take care!

hi! i am new in this forum. quite not sure where to post my question. anyweyz, i had my period started early this month and the blood was dark and old but no odor. is this normal? by the way, i am in the middle of menopause.

dark menstruations are usually a part of the endometrium shedding. nothing to be concerned about.


amanda - September 17

yup nothing to be worry unless you experience some pain. everyone experience dark periods for some time in their life.


stacy - September 18

having dark periods are unavoidable and sometimes depressing. i have it sometimes, you're not alone. hahaha!


liezl - September 25

mine is like a nightmare! i had dark periods that lasted a year! i can't really explain it and i had never ever opened this up to my doctor ever since.


stacy - September 25

gosh, that's cruel! so what did you do about it?


liezl - September 30

all i did is home and herbal remedies. no medication at all! but i won't suggest it to you... self treatment can be dangerous without knowing the cause of your problem.

right! prevention is better than cure. anything happens which doesn't happen normally should be confronted with doctors.
