Spotting after having my period 3 weeks ago...

I had my period 3 weeks ago. I started spotting light brown/light pink discharge 3 days ago. I'm wearing a panty liner. But for the whole day may get one little spot. It's there also when I wipe. I have cramping on the left side. Not sure what to make of it? My fiance' an I haven't been using protection. Could anyone please help me with any ideas as to why I am doin this or whats causing it. Thanks

Hello,
Main causes of spotting between periods could be due to ovulation, implantation bleeding during pregnancy, infection in an area of the body related to menstruation (including the vagina, the cervix and even the bladder).

Other causes could be polycystic ovarian syndrome, diseases of pituitary gland, hormonal imbalance of estrogen and progesterone and uterine abnormalities like fibroid and  cervical dysplasia. Your doctor may consider tests like blood sugar levels, thyroid function test, prolactin, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSA), estrogen, and testosterone. Imaging studies, such as ultrasound, X-ray, and CT scan may also be recommended in certain individuals.

I hope it helps. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
