endometriosis
Everytime I have my period it starts out black then later on becomes brown its got little pieces of bloodlike skin in it and I'm scared that it's pieces of my womb tearing off. I've been on the pill for 4 years and nothing improved well I had to go on the pill because I didn't get my period.I don't know, do you think I might have endometriosis?

It doesn't sound at all like endometriosis. That is exactly what a period is, pieces of the womb lining tearing off. It sounds normal.
