Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having light bleeding is not a serious issue.Please do not worry.

The most common causes are:stress,being overweight or underweight,imbalance of hormones,polycystic ovarian syndrome/estrogen dominance,uterine abnormalities (fibroids/cysts/polyps/endometriosis).

Stress/anxiety is one of the most common cause that disturbs the female menstrual cycle.

Please stop worrying and be relaxed.

You need to wait & watch for the next 3 cycles.

If the symptoms of light bleeding persists after 3 cycles,then you need to consult to your gyne doctor for tests & examination to know the underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.

As of now I advise you to wait & watch.

Please do not worry. There is nothing serious or dangerous about this .

Thank you
