Vaginal Bleeding Between Periods

I have been experiencing vaginal bleeding (which I have verified by inserting a tampon) for two weeks. I went to see my doctor and she told me that it is normal for young women of my age (24) but I have never experienced this before so it is not normal to me!

My GP provided me with two scenarios: 1) I had an abnormal ovulation which is apparently quick common. 2) that I am experiencing implantation bleeding but everything I have read about this indicates it is a few drops once and does not last for 2 weeks.

The bleeding is dark in colour but has a lot of mucus in it and at times it is bright red ligth normal blood. I have no idea why I am bleeding but I am also experiencing quite severe pains in the lower part of my abdomen that come and go. Earlier today I experienced one that felt like a stitch that you get when you're running but much much more painful.

Does anyone have any idea about what could actually be going on with me? I am afraid that I am having a miscarriage, eptopic pregnancy or a pregnancy in my follopian (sp?) tube. Or worse yet it may be ovarian cancer or something....not sure. All that I know is that I am not satisfied with my doctor's explanation!

Thanks for all of your insights!!

I have all of the same symptoms and had 2 ultrasounds, my regular pap smear, and urine analysis and my doctor says all my test came back normal.  I know exactly how you feel, Im very worried also.

Hello~I can certainly understand your concerns, I have had those exact same symptoms, but for me, they are due to peri-menopause. Now, I don't think you are old enough for that, it can start as early as 35, but, since you are 24, I sort of doubt that that is your problem. Are you taking any hormones such as "the pill"?

If this keeps up, I would see a gyn, they specialize in women's health problems. If all the tests come back favorably, then I would try not to worry.
