Customer Question

I experienced 4 days of bleeding 15 days after my previous period. I have a 22 day cycle. My husband and I stopped using birth control about 6 years ago. Four cycles ago, my doctor gave me clomid, then three cycles ago she gave me femera on the next cycle. I have pcos, so my cycles are usually jacked up, but in the past they have been longer, not shorter. It's hard to know if I am having pregnancy symptoms because the symptoms are so similar to pcos. I have taken so many pregnancy tests, it really becomes disheartening to even buy one. My doctor has moved her practice so now I don't have a doctor. I would assume the mid cycle bleeding is not a problem, but that has never happened to me before.

I took clomid four cycles ago and I took femera three cycles ago.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Could I be pregnant? Or could this be from the climbed and femera? Or I am going through the change?

I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
I am extremely sorry that your question was unanswered for long.
The bleeding is likely due to Clomid and / or Femera. With pregnancy tests being negative; it is unlikely. The bleeding can also be due to;
1) Ovarian hormone dysfunctions
2) Thyroid hormone abnormalities
3) Stress, anxiety, emotional disorders
4) Sudden weight loss or gain
5) Excessive physical activity
6) Hyperprolactinemia
