Mid-cycle bleed: Spotting or bleeding at mid-cycle is not uncommon and happens due to dip in hormones at that time of the cycle. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. 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. Get HPV vaccine.

Hormone balance: Abnormal vaginal bleeding usually resulting from a hormonal imbalance. The amount of estrogen needed in the proliferative stage varies for each woman. The type of abnormal bleeding is a reflection of the level of estrogen released. For example, women with lower-levels of estrogen will have intermittent spotting while those with higher levels will have less spotting.

Nature's not exact: Many women have occasional variation of their mucus discharge, some spotting between periods, a longer period, a shorter period, a heavier period, a lighter period, or even a missed period. Having one or two of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean there is a medical problem, but a visit to one’s primary care or Ob-Gyn doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome.
