  • It may be fibroids. I had a gyn exam and she said they are common and cause abnormal bleeding. I do not need to take any action. Try calling your county health clinic and ask them about it.

  • If you're on BC, it could be because of that. It's not normal to spot, so you do need to see a doctor.

  • Visit Planned Parenthood in your area. They do a lot of free women's health care services, including exams.

  • Planned Parenthood or the health department both offer gyno exams at lower prices.

  • Google "Community Health Centers" to find the master Web site of government-run health clinics that will see anyone, regardless of their ability to pay. You can drill down to find the location of a clinic near you.
