Hello,

I started my period on the 8th and it was about 6-7 days long. Well on the 18th I noticed some bleeding. It was not spotting. It was a lighter version of a period. It was an off red creamy color with a lot of brown. I have had it now for 4 days. Now its a little lighter. light pink and light brown. I also noticed this last month but it only lasted a day. WHat is this and should I worry?! Also, the 1st two days i had lower back menstrual like cramps.

I would get an appointment asap could be nothing. If it is abnormal periods they might put you and bc to try and regulate you.

I have endometriosis and my symptoms are/were nothing like what you mentioned and had several internal sonos done and they missed it. I know everyone is different. Hope you find out what is wrong.

There are lots of variables:
Stress
Weight gain
Weight loss
Contraception the list goes on and on as to why the irregular bleeding. I would encourage you to make an appt with your Ob/Gyn.

 If you are concerned, I would schedule an appointment with your ob/gyn.

It could just body preparing to and/or ovulating. I would discuss with your GYN just to be safe, but some spotting can be normal inbetween periods.

It seems to sound like your overies are just taking turns ovulating and need an extra cleansing of your female insides.  This is how my ovaries act too. If you are concerned, make an appointment to get checked out and to discuss with your doctor what your concerns are.

I used to be on a bc pill that was too low of a dose and I got spotting. My doc changed my pill and all was well.
