Hi there. Board-certified obgyn here.

May I ask when your last pap smear/pelvic exam was? Do you typically have a period every month?

a year ago.

Thank you.

Brown blood just indicates blood that is old - as in, it has sat in the vagina for a day or two before working its way out. Sometimes at the very beginning of your period, the bleeding starts off so light that there's not even enough of it to quickly push its way out of the vagina, and it just sits in the vagina before eventually working its way out. Bright red blood indicates blood that has recently bled, so as your period becomes heavier, you will start to see more bright red blood.

Nothing you're describing sounds like a red flag, but I always recommend going in for an exam at least once a year to make sure all is well. Good luck to you!
