spotting after period

I usually only have my period for 3-4 days but this period has been going on for almost a week. I had med bleeding for 3 days and the rest of the days have been spotting. Any idea why this might be happening?

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that the first thing you should do is a pregnancy test.  If that is negative, then my second thought is that maybe you didn't ovulate this month, or the follicle was a "dud".  If you are not pregnant, things will probably sort themselves out, but call your doctor if not.
Good luck!
