    I'm on BC pill, and my period was a day late, which is really unusual for me, and when I checked the blood was black like tar???

    I've had a few bits of red but it's still been quite black throughout the day!

    I've got a drs app booked in a few weeks, but just wondered if anyone else had had black blood?

    It sounds to me like 'old' blood, not fresh blood. I've had this a few times at the start or end of a period, especially when I had my coil, really thick and very dark. Have you tested? I know you said you're on a BC pill but if it's not a normal period for you it might just be worth testing.

    Think I'm going to test again Monday, it's been lighter than usual and now it's stopped after a day!

    Thanks Laalaa, I'll mention it at my appointment x
