Periods, Period

Are these clumps OK?!

 

I get brown clumps on my pad during my period, and it freaks me out!


What’s wrong?


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.
