I have had a normal period for 6 months straight same day every month. Suddenly I started spotting every day! Some days it's super heavy and some days are light. I'm not on birth control and have taken a few pregnancy tests and STI tests and stopped having sex completely. Tests are all negative. What could be the problem?
Abnormal vaginal bleeding can be caused by a variety of reasons. The most common cause of abnormal vaginal bleeding is anovulatory bleeding, which is unpredictable endometrial bleeding of variable flow and duration. It can be caused by a change in weight, an eating disorder, intense exercise, stress, illness and medications. You can also have abnormal vaginal bleeding due to a pregnancy or an infection, such as a sexually transmitted infection, so it was prudent to rule these out.
If this has been going on for more than a week or two, make an appointment with your health care provider to evaluate the bleeding, to rule out illness, such as thyroid problems, and anemia, and to treat the problem.
Spotting every day, not on birth control, negative pregnancy test, negative STIs, help?
