  • I had to look that one up since you asked why? I think most women do. I never found an answer on what it's called only what women think it is. Some say it's ovalation. When many years ago I had a period, I always spotted a day or two before. I just figured we keep it in a month so when it's about time, it's just that. I think the color is because it's been inside and not exposed in awhile. Who knows LoL..I don't need to know now and I'm surely not curious but I say it's normal and not to worry

  • I don't think that it 's anything to worry about .I always thought that it was old blood that is left over. It won't hurt you, so don't worry about it. It's ok
