Doctor

A:   Hello dear,

Thanks for trusting ATD about your health care.
I can understand your concern here.
The color changes during menstrual cycle is considered normal because dark colour can be due to old blood and deoxygenated blood.
If you had unprotected sex then chances of pregnancy are there but if you had period after that then there is no chance of pregnancy.
Hope it is useful, feel free to discuss more.

Good luck.
Regards
