A little background ... im 38, married, 2 children not on BC Pill and always had reg 27-29 day cycles.
beginning Jan/07 my periods started coming later and later until my last one was 2 weeks late.
My last one 2 weeks late was a normal flow and the reg 4 days.
About 2 weeks after the last one began i started spotting.
It was pretty light and only showed when i wiped, it eventually changed to red then pink then brown then red again ... each time i think its stopping it starts again ... its now been 2 weeks and still spotting.
I am terrified i have some dreaded diease or something very terrible wrong.
I dont have any cramping or pain and is only there when i wipe up high in my vagina almost like where your cervix is ... would this bleeding be coming from my uterus you think?
I did go to Urgent Care and the dr didnt check me in there and just said its likely hormonal and gave me RX for the pill.
hello i am having kinda the same problem i am 25 with 2 sons one is 6 and the other is 3 i have always had a normial period but this month it only lasted 3 days when i usual get it for 4 to 5 days then a day after it stopped i had intercourse with my husband and then i started to spot it was a bright red sometimes it would be pink and other times it would be brownish so that lasted for about a week and a half the past 2 days nothing so me and my husband tried to fool around again but after not even a min he noticed i was bleeding again so we stopped and i went to the bathroom and wipped and sure enough there it was again it was bright red but now i am having really bad pains on my side near my hip bone through out my back as of tonight there is no more blood but i still have this pain if anyone thinks they know please let me know thanks so much
I've been having the same thing. Heres my background im 24 never had sex and my cycle is usually regular. Cycles 28-31, my last period was normal and a few days after my bf and i fooled around and i started spotting only when wipe. It stopped and than it came back it was pinkish than reddish and back to pink. Spotting lasted about 2 weeks ranging from light spotting to period like and back to lite spotting. I went to the gyno and she didnt know why. All the test came out normal. Its stopped and now im a week late. Any ideas?
Same here I'm 24 my last period was shorter than usual, I had spotting for about a week now, first it was just brownish, now it's actual light red blood but only when I go pee and wipe myself is when you see it, I dont have to wear a pad, I dont have any pain. I'm desperate!! I see all of us here are asking the similar questions, BUT NOBODY IS REALLY GETTING ANSWERS. Someone please......
I just went to the GYN today (for my FIRST appoitment...most uncomfortable experience I've had to go through, thank goodness I only have to go once a year).
Anyway, I went because I've had spotting for little over a week, no pain for anything else unsual. I had a pelvic exam and the doctor took a sample of something (it wasn't a pap smear, as i've never been sexually active). She said everything looked normal, but advised me to get a sonogram done to check for ovarian cysts that could cause abnormal bleeding. I have an appointment for this in 2 weeks.
At first, the doctor was telling me that spotting mid-cycle (in between periods) for 2-3 days when ovulating is completely normal for some women. When I told her that mine has lasted a week, she decided it was best to do an exam.
She didn't tell me any other reason for spotting lasting longer than a week other than the ovarian cysts (that she said are completely managable by supressing them with the use of birth control) so it's probably not a serious condition.
I'm praying that everything is OK and I'm hopefull that it is because I have a great doctor.
I know I didn't answer any questions, but maybe I helped eased some minds. Of course, it doesn't hurt to go to the doctor to get it checked out.
