Spotting: Can mean a lot of things. Unfortunately, blood can come from a number of different sites including hemorrhoids, from the urine, from the cervix or from the uterus. Therefore if it persists can be a need for evaluation. If it is from the uterus it may be a variation in the hormone levels, polyp or fibroid in the uterus.
