A blackish vaginal discharge is often indicative of old blood which as been stagnant for some time. This may be one of the first signs of endometriosis or adenomyosis (a form of endometriosis affecting the uterine walls or muscles). It would therefore be advisable to have a careful gynecological assessment including possibly laparoscopy to exclude these possibilities.
