It's Not Time For My Period, So Why Am I Bleeding?

By July 20, 2009

Follow me on:

Bleeding or spotting between periods can be a frightening experience. You never know when bleeding between periods may occur. Maybe your period was over last week and then you notice that you're bleeding again. Maybe this isn't the first month you've experienced bleeding or spotting between periods. Or it could be the first time you've had bleeding between periods. Whether it's the first time you've experienced bleeding between periods, or just another month of spotting, bleeding between periods is a frustrating and stressful experience.

I just turned 31. In june I started a week early, thought I was done. A WEEK LATER I STARTED AGAIN. I thought that was weird till A WEEK LATER I STARTED AGAIN. In 6 weeks I have had 3 full periods. I don’t have insurence and cant afford a dr. I have never had this happen before and it is worrying me.

Well ,Lets see i have severeal periods a month. I have had 2 D/C within 2 years . I am 37years old and nothing has helped. I was on the pill and know i am not. I have never had children. I have been told that i do not ovulate so my blood collects on my wall of the uteriuos and then just drops when it is ready. Which means if i sneeze sometimes that will cause me to bleed. It is not fun . You never can tell when you will start . Always have to be ready

Im 16 and I was at Lakeside today, I used the bathroom and found blood when I wiped myself. Im not due for my period for another 11 days, I was quite scared and didn’t know what to do. What could it be? My friend thinks im anemic, im not quite sure on what it could be, I had a pain in my right side before but I thought that was because of the pizza I ate and I had a headache round the same time I found that I was bleeding, im also really tired but I thought this was because of the 5 hour shopping trip. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!

So I am 15yrs old. I am sexually active. The last time I had had unprotected sex was Jan.30th. I have had my periods normal every month since then.. I had my period on April 2nd til April 7th. Now I am bleeding again? What could be the cause of this ? My mom told me it could be from douching to much !! But I douche normally after my period. She also wants me to go see a Gyno and I am so scared !! I don’t want anyone up inside of me !! Please help ?! I also have these massive cramps a few times a day , and I can’t stand or sit. I have to lay on my stomach and push for the pain to go away.. PLEASE HELP ?!

I also have the same problem! I started spotting the other day after having my period a week and 1/2 before and I am not due for my period for another 10 days! I spotted for 2 days. The 2nd day when I went out to go mow my lawn I put a tampon in, by the time I came back in 2 hours later, the tampon was full!!!! So I put another one in and when I went to go change it about 5 hours later, there was not a thing on it…. later that day I went to my boy friends and we had sex and I was bleeding bad, but once again, I put a tampon in, changed it 4 hours later and barley anything was on it at all. I went to my doctor and had a pregnacy test done and a pap smere. The pregnacy test came out negitive and I have to wait until tomorrow to get all my test back! :-/ I have never had bleeding between my periods like this…It’s werid and I don’t like it…. Has anyone ever had this problem???
