Hello! My name isXXXXX and I will take the time to answer your question =)
First I would definitely take a urine pregnancy test
If that is negative, you know for sure you are not pregnant.
Outside of that though, this could be just a sign that you didn't ovulate last month....
that can cause spotting or irregular bleeding exactly like what you are experiencing now
I am not bleeding though
Typically it resolves within 1-2 cycles, so if the pregnancy test comes back negative, I would give it some more time
I am not spotting either
sorry let me clarify:
I misspoke.. when you don't ovulate an egg during a cycle, you don't have the typical hormone withdrawal that causes a period each month
The result of that is one of three things
1) Irregular spotting
2) irregular bleeding (heavier)
3) no bleeding (just a missed period)
Some women with three also start to 'feel' like a period is coming on..or have cramping but have no period
I suspect that is most likely the reason
Oh! Okay. Thanks
but if you are sexually active, it is always wise to rule out pregnancy first before exploring other options
