umm it could be implantation bleeding, but spotting between periods can also result from using the pill/patch for birth control or from some stds or from just menstrual irregularity. take a pregnancy test and if it still concerns you, you may want to see a doctor. hope that helps.

I too have had spotting recently which has never happened before. I actually though I was starting my period and It stopped.  I am wondering why I got this. I still haven't got my period yet and it's been a week since the spotting. I'm not on birth control nor have I been for a while. I did take a pregenancy test 1 week before the spotting due to cramps and it was negative. Is this normal? If I was spotting du to pregnancy wouldn't have shown up on the test I took or maybe I was ovulating or something else is going on. Confused...
