See the Doctor: I can hopefully help you be less scared. You are feeling well, having no pain, and these situations with irregular periods and bleeding are actually the most common reason women see their gynecologists. If the bleeding returns or if the spotting does not stop then it may be time for an exam. But, please know this is a common situation and likely not to be a big deal.
