Period abnormal ?'s: A "regular" period (timing and length) on the 2nd of November and now (November 20-21) "bright red spotting with dark clotting" may indicate a possible pregnancy. There are other causes of bleeding, so see your gyn for an evaluation and further testing. Obtain a serum HCG if pregnancy is possible.
