The duration of your menstrual cycle can vary, sometimes from cycle to cycle. Depending upon how much time you've retained your endometrial lining, it's color may vary from red (if flowing quickly) to brown (if flowing more slowly). However, there shouldn't be any change to its smell (no foul odors!) and you shouldn't have any fevers/sweats/chills or abdominal pain (beyond typical menstrual cramping). If you have any of these symptoms, we worry about sexually transmitted diseases. That's why it's always important for your male partner(s) to wear a condom.
