Are these clumps OK?!
I get brown clumps on my pad during my period, and it freaks me out!
Nothing like brown clumps to remind you that periods are, well, icky! But relax—you’re fine. When a girl’s flow is in full force, it tends to be red. But when it slows down, it becomes brown from air exposure.
Plus, your uterus is self-cleaning, so when you menstruate you shed its lining. That means clumps and clots are not only OK, they’re part of the process.
