Okay So today is supposed to be CD11 This is my 3rd cycle off BCP. I had my period from 11-18 to 11-22 and I thought everything was fine. Yesterday morning I was spotting not very much and just on the TP. Today I am bleeding not just spotting. What is going on?? I'm afraid we are going to miss O if I am bleeding can someone please help me???
What causes bleeding between periods?
Although the cause of irregular bleeding can vary according to individual health situations, some of the more common causes include:
*Beginning or stopping oral contraceptives or estrogens
*Low thyroid levels
*IUDs occasionally cause slight spotting
*Injury to the vagina from insertion of objects, from malignant cancers, or from vaginal infections
*Certain drugs such as anticoagulants
*GYN procedures such as CONE biopsy or cervical cauterization
If bleeding is heavy, bed rest may be recommended. Keep a record of the number of pads or tampons that you use so that your physician can determine whether bleeding is abnormally heavy. It's best to avoid taking aspirin because it can prolong bleeding. Whenever you experience irregular bleeding from unknown causes it is wise to call your physician for an appointment, as well as when bleeding occurs after menopause or when other symptoms are present.
