Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually from what you are describing it sounds like that you may have developed a hormonal imbalance which is causing the absent periods at times as well as the current spotting that you may have been experiencing. Even if we discount the absent period from your current issue, simple spotting of this sort can also be due to a hormonal imbalance. A hormonal imbalance can develop in women because of a number of different reasons which can include anxiety, stress, infections, exercise, physical activity, strenuous exercise among others. This would usually settle down on its own within 1-2 months in most cases however in some patients, medications would be needed for a period of 1-2 months.

A hormonal imbalance can be diagnosed with the help of a simple hormonal blood panel and a clinical examination. Now in your case since you are experiencing mild spotting at the moment, I would suggest that you monitor the situation for the next 4-7 days, usually, the spotting would settle down on its own. However, if it does not or if you develop any of the following symptoms then contact your doctor,

Heavy bleeding

Burning urination or increased urinary frequency

Persistent lower abdominal pain

Fever

Vaginal discharge

Do you have any more questions?
