Is it normal to spot in between periods for more than 4 days?

Are you still there?

Sorry, I sent the answer some time ago. Apparently it did not go through.

Here is is again.

No, but it is often not serious.

It can be a sign of

pregnancy

fibroids

endometriosis

hormone imbalance from any cause

liver problems

kidney problems

thyroid problems

infection

Lesion on the cervix.

It is a good reason to have an updated exam with your OB doctor.

OK, let me know if you have further questions.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
