Spotting between periods symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Spotting between periods symptoms


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 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.
Avatar n tn Spotting between periods could be caused by uterine polyps. You should ask your gyno to do an ultrasound to rule that out before you get the IUD. The IUD helps for bleeding but only if your uterus is clear of polyps and/or fibroids. Otherwise you'll still have bleeding issues anyway even with the IUD.
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?

705947 tn?1228849793 Why am I spotting brown between my periods? I think I might be having a miscarrige. I was 55 days late last month but I had a 4 day period and now 16 days after my last period Im spotting brown.
Avatar n tn I ,too, have alot of spotting with discharge between my cycles. I do have a cyst on my left ovary associated with pcos. I'm am on metformin. I know they cause irregular bleeding. What I don't understand is why I am spotting the same time every month. I've read it could have alot to do with the changes in hormones. I've also heard some people spotting just before or during ovulation.

Avatar n tn Irregular periods and spotting in between can be a sign of a hormone imbalance. If you are not eating properly and may be anaemic that too can throw your menstrual cycle off balance as too can stress. It was wise of you to do a pregnancy test, because sometimes you can get a light show of spotting. Best wishes.
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.
1490386 tn?1301378586 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 Hi all! I am 29 years old - my husband and I just starting trying to get pregnant. My last period started nov 27 and my cycles are usually 29-30 days. Next one is due dec 27. We have had intercourse the past several days as I am due for ovulation. Late last night I got some spotting, very light, and that has continued today with light cramping. I never get spotting between periods and it's making me a little nervous... What could this be?! Thanks for any help!!!!
1783746 tn?1328114601 Hello, Spotting in between periods can be a result of implantation bleeding particularly when you are trying hard to conceive. This spotting can be implantation bleed or intermenstrual bleed due to high levels of stress,cholesterol, hormonal imbalance, smoking, dramatic changes in your life style,PCOS or fibroid uterus. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn I had a difficult time understanding your post. I am unsure if you are currently having your period or not. I'm not sure why YOU'RE not sure if you had some spotting. I don't mean this to sound nasty, Sweetie, but either you did or you didn't have some spotting. It's pretty difficult to not recognize spotting when we see it. You said that when you wiped, there was a brown, gooey discharge. Almost all women get this from time to time.
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.
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 m tn If you were my patient, I would advise you that normal periods last between 4-7 days. Sometimes they can trail off a bit with some spotting, or sometimes there can be a day or two of spotting beforehand. I would certainly want to hear from my patient if she was having periods lasting longer than 10 days for more than one month. Good luck!
