Why am I having some light bleeding?

It's not time for my period, and I'm not cramping.


Answer by  monkeyz (3150)

Light bleeding (spotting) can be caused by use of birth control pills, ovulation, implantation of a fertilized egg, or rough sexual activity. Additionally, sometimes periods can become very irregular, to the point of random spotting or bleeding outside of the normal menstrual period.


Answer by  mannersandsuch (1796)

Spotting can happen for any number of reasons from birth control, stress, pregnancy and infection. If you are worried about you should call your GYN she can walk you through whether or not it is something that you should be concerned over or whether is normal. If the bleeding becomes significant go to an emergency room.

First of all, you should make sure that you are not pregnant. Implantation bleeding can be a symptom of early pregnancy. Otherwise, you may have breakthrough bleeding, which is just benign light bleeding between periods. Sometimes this is due to the use of oral contraceptives, due to fluctuating hormone levels.
