Mid-cycle spotting: Spotting during mid-cycle is not uncommon due to a natural drop in hormone levels. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

See a gynecologist: while irregular periods during your teens can be a common thing because your hormonal control system is maturing, at some point having irregular periods is abnormal and needs to be regulated and controlled by medications if another source of the problem cannot be identified. if you don't have periods for a while, the next period that you have can come on very strong and long as is right now.
