I am a 20-year-old female. About 7 months ago, I began spotting between periods. It would happen once or twice a month, in the middle of my menstrual cycle, and would last 2-3 days. The blood was light brown in color. After this happened a couple times, I went to see a gynecologist. When I described it to her, she said it was normal and that it was because I was ovulating, and that it may have been caused by stress. She told me not to worry about it and to come back if it persisted for a few more months. It continued in the same pattern for the next 3 months, so I wasn't really worried.
Usually it would start a week and a half to 2 weeks after my period, but last month it started just 6 days after my period ended. Other than that, though, it was normal and my next period came when it was supposed to. This month, my period ended on a Saturday. That Tuesday, there was a little bit of red blood on the toilet paper when I went to the bathroom, but otherwise nothing. Thursday I started spotting, and it ended Saturday. But Monday when I went to the bathroom, there was red blood on the toilet paper again, and today, there is a lot more of it! It's only when I go to the bathroom. I'm scared, though, because nothing like this has ever happened before!
I don't have cramps or any other kind of pain; I feel normal. My periods have been normal throughout this whole thing. I'm not on birth control or any other kind of medications. I have never been sexually active.
I plan to make an appointment with a gynecologist, but I don't know how soon I can get it and I would appreciate some help/feedback!
