- Brown Black – usually noticed early in the morning and that is because the blood has been in the uterus for a longer period. It sounds like something that you should really be worried about. But it is actually not, as in most of the cases this is normal, as the blood remained for longer period in the womb.
- Orange Red – If you notice that menstrual blood is orange red, and it has an odor, you should visit a gynecologist immediately. This color is seen when blood is mixed with fluids from the cervix. Furthermore, it can be a sign of some infection.
