If this is the first time you are having this problem and it’s not part of a regular pattern, it’s not something to worry too much about.
The Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) possibility is ruled out here. This might not be an implantation bleeding, as even those having cycle duration as low as 24 days. You can also rule out the pregnancy chances in this case; ovulation in this case will occur at day 10 and it will need another 6-9 days for egg implantation. The bleeding between periods can be caused due to many reasons, for example, hormonal fluctuations, low thyroid levels, stress, a vaginal injury, vaginal infections, or spotting duration ovulation.
The major cause for between period bleeding is hormonal fluctuations found during ovulation. Ovulation occurs when estrogen and luteinizing hormone interact. In order to make the interaction possible, there’s an abrupt increase needed in the luteinizing hormone along with a steady increase in estrogen. This abrupt hormonal change makes the sensitive endometrium of the uterus to partially fall off, which results in bleeding. Also, the wall of ovary also has to break for the follicular contents to pour out. This also results in vaginal bleeding.
The possibility of a vaginal injury or infection cannot be ruled out. If the bleeding lasts more than 48 hours, it might not be ovulation bleeding. Any other symptoms like itching or burning can place it in a vaginal infection category. An appointment with a GP/OBG is necessary to clear out on the issue and get the needed help, if any. Also, if you don’t want kids at the moment, it would be better if you use some kind of protection during sex; it’ll keep you from worrying every month.
For those that are just having a bloody discharge that isn't like a full blown period and you just got off your period... It could be ovulation spotting. There are a couple of thoughts on what causes ovulation spotting. Some people believe that the light spotting is a result of the egg rupturing through the follicle during ovulation. It is thought that as the egg bursts from the follicle that a little bleeding may occur. This is why some women may notice brown spotting, which is generally an indicator of older blood, around the time they ovulate. The blood may turn brown or even a pinkish light red as it exits the body.
The other possible explanation for ovulation spotting is that the spotting is a result of a woman’s changing hormones during ovulation. As a woman’s body prepares to ovulate, follicles will start to grow and mature. As they mature they produce more estrogen. This increase in estrogen triggers a surge in LH, another hormone involved in ovulation. When LH surges it signals the mature egg to burst from the follicle. Estrogen rises sharply right before a woman ovulates and it is thought that the increase in estrogen levels may cause light spotting to occur.
Most women, especially those on a 28 day cycle, will ovulate 14 days after their last period started. So if you are spotting close to that time, it could just be ovulation spotting and most likely you aren't pregnant. Just to be sure, you should wait 2 weeks from the time the spotting stops and take a test. If you don't want to get pregnant, you should obviously be using protection. If you get a lot of heavy bleeding in between periods, you should see your doctor b/c it could be a sign that somethings wrong.
I had my period 2 weeks ago and I started to have light bleeding again I don't have any pain but I do have a cold and I have been taking pills for about a week I don't think I'm pregnant since I have been using protection?
I am experiencing a similar situation ladies. I had my tubes tied Sep 08 and everything has been fine. Well I had my period on the 16th of March, it was a horrible period, major cramping and pain. Now I am bleeding again, very light red spotting, only when I wipe, for about three days now. A little worried. No other symptoms just spotting and feel bloated. What do you ladies think. I have an apt with my Dr for tomorrow.
It happens to most women that you will have irregular periods sometime in your life. I don't know your age but it could be the start of menopause. Also stress and anxiety will cause your cycle to get out of whack. There is also the possibility that you are pregnant and maybe now with this light bleeding you could be miscarrying. Check a pregnancy test if negative I would see your doctor to get a full physical no hurry but if it is positive you should see your doctor ASAP.
I just had my period about two weeks ago and now I'm having it again. First it was brown blood then it turned brownish red. I had intercourse almost 3 weeks ago and I'm on birth control. I have no other signs of being pregnant. Could there still be that possibility I am pregnant?
You Could Be but probably not! You should see a doctor many things can cause you to get it early! Mine changes if I am around to many girls! We all end up getting it at the same time every month!
Also if you don't want to get pregnant use protection. Then you can do it all you want and NO need to worry!!
So I had my period like 2 weeks ago me and my boyfriend been having sex for 2 days now. Just night I went to the bathroom n I'm bleeding.. He did cum in me like month ago because we don't use anything , I'm very confused because I did this once befor but I thought it was something my boyfriend did to me. But I don't know if this is right to happen

Need help!!!! When me period is finish. Two weeks after I still see blood sometimes for a week of and on can you help me please.
Period abnormality's are very common. Your cycle can get thrown off or act funny for a number of reasons, if you lose weight to fast or if you gain weight to fast you can mess it up. Stress is a number 1 cause of abnormal periods. If you had any kind of surgery's . I have 2 periods a month but my first one will only last 2-3 days, then my second one will last maybe 3-4 and there about 1 week apart too.
