Vaginal bleeding: This is abnormal and you need to see your doctor asap for an examination. If you continue to bleed heavily go to the ER. Perhaps you are pregnant and having a problem.

If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test .
