Probably: Spotting for a week or so after a cervical biopsy is normal. The proximity to your period is probably not related to the spotting.

A 41-year-old member asked:

Is it normal to bleed after a pap smear while pregnant?

Yes: A small amount of bleeding is not unusual and is the result of normal changes that occur in the cervix with pregnancy that make it more susceptible to bleeding after a pap. Heavy bleeding with cramping is not normal and should be evaluated further.

Menstrual pain: Severe pain should be evaluated by a gynecologist. Mild to moderate cramping can be relieved with NSAID meds like Ibuprofen or naproxen. Check out no-drug methods too like massage, exercise, and a new menstrual belt called ziivaa.

Not your periods: Both menses sound normal being moody is likely related to other circumstances (husband, kids, job, money ?).

Hypomenorrhea: Very light menstrual flow can be normal. Having regular cycles that aren't too heavy or painful is more important than concern about enough flow. A sudden change in menstrual flow can signal a problem, like a hormonal change or pregnancy.
