Spotting between periods back pain

Common Questions and Answers about Spotting between periods back pain


Avatar f tn I am a 20-year-old female. About 7 months ago, I began spotting between periods. It would happen once or twice a month, in the middle of my menstrual cycle, and would last 2-3 days. The blood was light brown in color. After this happened a couple times, I went to see a gynecologist. When I described it to her, she said it was normal and that it was because I was ovulating, and that it may have been caused by stress.
Avatar f tn Mine started in January, the whole month, but only with spotting. But this month, starting 3/15, I started spotting. And today I am bleeding but not heavily with some small clots. I am not on any medication just multivitamins. I do work graveyard shifts as a nurse and thought it could be stress or not eating right. Someone please help in answering our questions. I can't explain not having intercourse with my husband because I am having this problem.
Avatar n tn Then I began to have vaginal spotting in between periods. Still, I have a regular menstruation. I noticed increase in discharge and a different smell. Just this week, I am having severe pain in my left iliac (lower left of the abdomen) spreading up to my left thigh, lower back and less pain on the right iliac. Even after urinating it still feels painful.
Avatar n tn what is the deal with long times between periods? said i ovulated on 20 buut i should have o on 4 or 5 because my last af was dec. 17 - 23.
130265 tn?1450986981 What is the main difference between spotting and light bleeding? I don't know what it is that I'm experiencing, and for me to define the difference would help. I don't have insurance so I can't go to the OB, and it costs $125 for bloodwork. The pink and brown stuff is only there when I wipe. This has been going on for 8 out of the last 9 days. It comes and goes. My period isn't due at least until this friday, and this started last monday. Light cramping, high temps. Coverline is 96.
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing unusual periods and spotting in between periods for the last year and a half. I am currently bleeding and have been doing so for over a month now from very heavy to just a little. I've seen my doc about this many times and he recently put my on birth control. (3 weeks ago) This last week I had extreme cramping which on a scale of 1-10 for pain it was a 10!! So now my doc took me off of birth control and is sending me to a specialist (gynecologist).
Avatar n tn davesbgrdtruck - I wouldn't be too worried. When I had my gallbladder out last year, it took about 2-3 months to get my cycle back to normal. She did have major surgery (even if they call it minor). There are so many things that are affected after the surgery such as digestion and (sorry if TMI) but bowel movements. While her body adjusts to these changes, she will experience irregularity with her cycle.
Avatar f tn For the past 10 months my period has become very Irregular and just recently (4 months) I have started having light bleeding, spotting for one-two days in between periods. For example, I had a period March 3-5 spotted on the 13th then had another period March 27- April 1. I started spotting again on April 22. I got swabbed to rule out infection & also had a Pap Smear done in March and both came back normal.
Avatar f tn i always have major cramping and heavy flows, clotting. the periods last from 7 thru 10 days. i take pamprin to control the pain but sometimes it doesnt even work. i am now 30 & havent had a period in almost 2 mos. i just recently took 2 pregnancy tests & both were positive. i took it because i hadnt ever gone this long without a period. could i really be pregnant? with all my problems i figured i was infertile.
Avatar n tn I am also spotting in between my periods. the sharp pain is on my left side, but very low. The sharp pain comes and goes and is not constant. I haven't had a Pap Test in over 5 years. I do have an appointment in a few days. What should I do in the mean time?
Avatar n tn im very young and i dont know the difference between spotting and my period i used to get it just at random and now for two months i have got it on the 5th and my periods used to last 7 days and now they only last 3, they are still heavy and a dark red but i dont know if they are now spotting or if my body is just changing , please help me figure out what it is and find out if im pregnent or not....
Avatar n tn If your menstruation is generally problem free, this may not be a menstrual problem. Spotting between periods is often related to hormonal problems such as Polycystic Ovaries, but you would have other ongoing symptoms too. As you are relating this to sex with your boyfriend it may be that there is a link here. For example you may have candida infection and sex has aggravated internal soreness, causing bleeding, similarly it could be polyps.
Avatar f tn Is it b/c of the cyst? I usually don't have this severe pain in my back. Usually, when it acts up, I have back pain, just not this bad. It even hurts when I cough, which is alot b/c unfortunately I am a smoker. Does anyone else experience severe back pain? It is like something is pinched back there!
117065 tn?1280878007 of 05 I had a very early m/c, and after that I started spotting from a day or so after 0 until my af arrived, would stop for about 7-10 days and than as soon as I O'd I would start spotting agian. I went through this for a few months, and had a SHG (sonohystogram) and HSG (hystosalpingogram) and both were normal. Well, I had my third miscarrige in June of this year, and have had the same problem.
Avatar f tn Can someone tell me the difference between spotting and your actual period. Im so confused I cant tell which is which??
Avatar n tn Hello, I have read all of your comments to find I have something in common with you all. I too have severe hip pain. The pain radiates accross my lower back. When I am sitting even for a short amount of time it hurts to get up. When I lie down it takes my whole upper body strengh to change positions or to just sit up. It is painful to lift my right leg and to cross the right leg over the left I have to grab it to bring it over.
2020005 tn?1476662562 Last month I only had brown spotting for 4-5 days, this month stopped my period and 3 days later, started right back up. I'll work out, and bleed after, have sex, bleed after. I finally had enough. I call my OB and discuss the issue, he says my birth control pills have been ineffective for me AGAIN - we switched pills about 5-6 months ago as well because they were ineffective for my body - and he's trying a new pill.
4223560 tn?1355529550 If you have severe pain in lower back, spotting between periods and earlier had heavy periods, then endometriosis should be ruled out. Another possibility is a fibroid in the uterus. Low back ache can also be due to pelvic inflammatory disease. So, an ultrasound scan would be helpful in diagnosing the problem. If you have heartburn then you can take some antacid gel and see if it helps. Along with it you can take drugs like omeprzaole or ranitidine. Eat small and frequent meals.
