Why do i keep spotting ?

So for the last couple of days I’ve been spotting off and on. I assumed my period was coming but it hasn’t yet. So then I assumed it was probably my endometriosis acting up because I later stopped bleeding. Now last night my husband and I were having sex and I started spotting again during sex. Can someone please tell me why I might be going through this ?

You might have a fibroid. Have you had an ultrasound recently?

It could be a fibroid especially if you also have heavy bleeding during your period. Another possibility is a simple hormonal imbalance.  Producing too much progesterone, for example, causes this.  Not uncommon.  I'd see your ob/gyn who can do some blood work to check your levels and an exam to look for fibroids if they are present.  Can you see the doctor for this?
