My period comes out clumpy. Ew.

I get brown clumps in my pad when I get my period, and they freak me out! What are they, and does it mean something’s wrong?

There’s nothing like some brown clumps to remind you that periods are kinda, well, icky! But fortunately, those brown clumps are also perfectly healthy. Phew!
Basically, when a girl’s menstrual flow is fast, it’s red. But when it slows down, it becomes brown due to exposure to the air. Plus, periods are all about your uterus cleaning itself out, so you’re also shedding the lining of your uterus. That means clumps and clots are not only OK, they’re expected.
