Spotting in between periods

I am just curious has anybody had spotting in between their periods. I had sex on my period on the 1st of May. About 8 days later ( 5 or 6 after my period ended) I noticed spotting in my underwear. It was very light and I never saw this spotting again. I have had no symptoms of STDs (although I know often times they rarely show symptoms) and I know I am not pregnant because I had my next period on the 25 of May. I am just curious if anybody might know what this is?

I'm experiencing this myself right now - except I'm spotting
on my 9th day of my period.  I heard if you have sex while
you're having your period, it could actually make your period
last longer.  Is there any pain with the spotting?  If there
is, if I were you, I would check in with my GYN.  You still
could be pregnant if you had unprotected sex during your last
cycle.  Good luck!

I've have my own problems with spotting and bleeding, but i experienced that before. After sex i used to bleed, i came to realize that i couldn't have rough sex (sorry to be so blunt) Every time i have sex to hard, i would bleed. Maybe this is happening to you to?

Possibly. We had kind of rough sex during my period. My period then ended on May 2 and I had spotting on May 8th. I never saw the spotting again. I'm not too sure, but when I have sex I am usually dry as hell ...i don't understand that one either.
