Black <br>Black "blood" 1st day of period
Hi

I don't know if it's something to worry about, but for a few months I've noticed that on the 1st day of my period the blood is black. I don't expierence more than usual pain.

I've been using Yasmin for some time, would that play a roll?

I'm 22 and not sexually active. I'd apperciate your feedback.

Thanks

Periods can be different on the Pill as there are different amounts of blood and womb lining in the period. It sounds normal.
