Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Delayed menses.: Please get a pregnancy test .If you are pregnant the bleeding may be due to implantation or threatened abortion. Most episodes of implantation bleeding stop spontaneously if you avoid sexual further intercourse. Threatened abortions usually also stop, especially if there are no pelvic cramps. If you are not pregnant you may be having a menstrual cycle in which you did not ovulate.

Pregnancy maybe: check a pregnancy test as this is the most likely reason. otherwise it could be that you didn't ovulate the last month and the bleeding is breakthrough bleeding.
