Spotting between periods symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Spotting between periods symptoms


Avatar n tn I am just curious has anybody had spotting in between their periods. I had sex on my period on the 1st of May. About 8 days later ( 5 or 6 after my period ended) I noticed spotting in my underwear. It was very light and I never saw this spotting again. I have had no symptoms of STDs (although I know often times they rarely show symptoms) and I know I am not pregnant because I had my next period on the 25 of May. I am just curious if anybody might know what this is?
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 I sometimes get dark blood discharge in between periods it last a few days to a week and ranges from a little smear to sometimes a clump. It does not hurt and does not flow like my period. It's more like dark (almost black)discharge. I notice I get it a day or two after exercising and thought I might be aggravating something. This has been happening sporadically over 5 years.. I am 31 years old.
Avatar f tn Bleeding in between periods and after periods can be due to several causes. The commonest cause of is hormonal imbalance. The two hormones regulating a woman’s cycle are estrogen and progesterone. If they get out of balance, one may have spotting. Pregnancy, Pelvic inflammatory disease, STIs, atrophic vaginitis, cervical or endometrial polyps, cervical erosions are few common causes of bleeding in between periods.

1490386 tn?1301382186 Does anyone on here that has an underactive thyroid have problems with their periods as well?? My last 2 cycles my periods have been really short only lasting about 3 days and more spotting than anything. I haven't been diagnosed with an underactive thyroid yet. I am still waiting to see a doctor, but I was told by a doctor in the ER that I needed to see an endocrinologist because my thyroid test was border line.
Avatar f tn off for about 4 years. Normal periods, spotting, 2 periods in one month and then months without one. Each year that I go to the gyn., he does an ultrasound & an endometrial biopsy (so far, good) and offers birth control pills and that's about it. So I guess this happens, and unless you're willing to try bcp, you just need to "stick it out.
1575914 tn?1320354680 what is the MAIN diff between pms & pregnancy symptoms? if my cycles are 123 days apart and and i passed out a "spot" the size of a dime last montth and my next P is next week....would that "spot" be a sign of impl. bleeding or ovulation especially since i never spot?
Avatar n tn The last two months I have had spotting almost constantly between periods and both months right around the time I am suppose to ovulate I have had sharp pains in my perineum (area between vagina and rectum) that only last a few minutes, usually at night and only one or two days. I have had a pap in the last year and have never had a bad one come back. Has anyone had similar symptoms??? I have a gyno appointment in 2 1/2 months, but I wonder if I should go sooner.
653388 tn?1227907736 I wasn't sexually active or anything at the time, but it was just out of the blue - usually my cycles are between 28-35 days and then I had that random really short one. That is what your 5 spotting days sound like to me. As for symptoms, I am not sure - would be something to ask the Dr., I'd think. Don't stress about cervical cancer until you actually have information from the doctor. I'd think that that would definitely be an extreme reason for a short period or your other symptoms.
Avatar f tn I have vaginal bleeding and spotting in between periods. Its been going on for over 3 years. My gyno doctor just keeps changing my birth control pills. I'm very frustrated at this point. Is this something that you experienced?
Avatar n tn If you are about one week from periods then this could be implantation bleed. Use of pills and depot shots do causes spotting between periods.
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.
Avatar n tn My periods were spacing out over the past 4 years or so and in 2007, I went almost a year without a period, only to have 3 periods again in 2008. This year has been a mysterious fear. In between, I've had ultrasounds and PAPs on a yearly basis, mammograms etc....everything I should be doing. I'm now awaiting the results of my PAP and an ultrasound that I had done last week and scared. I'm supposed to be booked in with a gynecologist to have another look because of this spotting.
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 am currently going through menopause and I also had an my question is why am I having my periods close together? thank you.
Avatar f tn I'm a 39 year old woman with irregular periods who's about to contact a doctor about the issue but I would like to know what kinds of treatments are available before I go so I know what to expect. I have had irregular periods for several years. Issues like missed periods, spotting instead of regular menstrual flow, sometimes I get cramps but no blood, sometimes I get a slightly heavier discharge instead of blood, sometimes a small flow.
Avatar f tn My periods have been somewhat irregular for the last year, ranging from 28 to 38 days. My question is relating to menstrual spotting. My last periods started October 9th, and were a bit longer than usual. About 4 days after finishing I had 3 days of very light spotting, which is kind of unusual for me. I haven't had a period until I started spotting on Dec. 4th, two months after my last period.
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 My periods have been quite regular ( 26 day cycles ), I had a recent pap smear that was normal, a CD3 FSH test that was normal and a CD21 progesterone test that was low. My last two periods have been irregular with mid cycle spotting that is light and brown in color. On my second last cycle I had intercourse on CD13 with ovulation symptoms.
Avatar f tn I know that some women spot during ovulation, but as I said, I never have--any advice? Also, I am due for my period sometime between tomorrow and the 10th. Would spotting make me late? Also...unrelated...but what does dpo stand for?
6071594 tn?1378934069 Hello, Delayed periods are usually due to pregnancy. Most home pregnancy tests that check urine beta-HCG are sensitive to 20-25 mIU/ml of HCG. The test can be positive anywhere from about 2-3 days prior to a missed menses to 4-5 days after, but usually it should be done 7-10 days past your missed period. You can check your pregnancy status by urine for pregnancy test or get your serum HCG levels checked which is more specific test for pregnancy.
