Hi, , You must take your wife to her Gynecologist -Obstetrician immediately .

If she is experiencing this sensation like she is going to start her period with the spotting , this could be a sign of miscarriage .

However ,there are other possibilities like a vaginal infection or an uterine polyp ( small growths or small internal masses attached to the the uterine walls ).

Take her to the doctor immediately .
