Every two weeks after my period like clockwork I experience

Customer Question

Every two weeks after my period like clockwork I experience light spotting sometimes with cramps but nothing major. It happens almost every month for about 5 days then it stops. I get my period every 28 days. I keep track of it on my calendar. I do not use birth control pills. Is this due to ovulation? I am 35 years old no kids.

Hello,

intermenstrual bleeding like this is caused by a harmless, hormonal imbalance. Helpfull can be the use of monk´s pepper (Vitex agnus-castus, over the counter at pharmacy) which has a cycle regulating effect. Anyway, it´s no reason to worry.

Best regards,

Dr. N. Scheufele
