Is it common to have spotting instead of getting my period?

I have been spotting for the past several days, just light spotting, nothing major and do not need a pad.

If you have been regular all along and you suddenly have spotting you really need to get yourself to your doctor rightr away. You may be pregnant.

You do not have periods while pregnet. If you are pregnet and either "spotting" or bleeding more severely, please contact a Doctor, and be checked. It may very well be something minor that will simpily require you to rest more often, but it this is also a major sign of something being wrong with the pregency.

It is very common to have spotting in early pregnancy, which is often associated with implantation spotting. You should take an at home pregnancy test to make certain.

Women have irregular cycles all the time and spotting once or twice is not a cause for concern. However, if you regularly are not having a "real" period, then you may not be experiencing regular cycles and you should contact your doctor.
