Progesterone: Most period and many TTC problems have to do with inadequate progesterone production during the literal phase (see chart). See a fertility specialist for evaluation and treatment. Increase intake of deeply pigmented vegetables to increase vitamin/mineral intact and healthy fats (real butter, coconut oil, etc.) to improve hormone production. ...Read more

No: At your age, unless you are using a contraceptive that limits the frequency of menstrual bleeding, you should be having regular periods. It would be prudent to consult your doctor. You may visit this site for information.

From last two months bleeding only spotting on first day and second day later stops I was taking birth control pills from one year but the problem?

From last two months bleeding only spotting on first day and second day later stops I was taking birth control pills from one year but the problem?

Incomplete question: Your question did not come through in its entirety. You may wish to restate.
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

I have been experiencing bleeding and spotting for more than one month. What are the reason?

I have been experiencing bleeding and spotting for more than one month. What are the reason?

Vaginal bleeding: There are too many possible causes to speculate. The most likely causes vary with age, hormonal contraception, and other factors. If you are under age 25 and sexually active, STDs are high on the list of possibilities -- of course depending on risks (new partner, condoms, etc). In any case, all unexplained vaginal bleeding should be professionally evaluated, so see a doctor soon. Good luck. ...Read more

I had light pink spotting only one time, only when I wiped at 10dpo. I had the exact same thing happen at 17 dpo. Is this implantation bleeding twice?

Implantation bleed: Implantation bleeding is much more common on the internet than in real life. It occurs rarely and exclusively in someone who is pregnant. The only way to know if someone had implantation bleeding or just irregular menstrual bleeding is to wait and see if you are pregnant. If your test is positive then this was implantation bleeding. If it is negative then it is just irregular menstrual bleeding. ...Read more

Yes I been spotting off and on I been of bc awhile now I'm bleeding light and my boob hurt what this mean after coming off one shot of birth control?

Shot=depo?: If you mean by shot of birth control that you got one shot of depo-provera, then that is the reason for your irregular bleeding and breast tenderness. It can take 6-12 months after coming off depo for your hormones and thus periods to get back to normal. During that time irregular bleeding and spotting is normal. ...Read more

I lost one triplet down to twins dr told me it will get absorbed I'm confused how is that possible and will I bleed heavily I just have been spotting?

I lost one triplet down to twins dr told me it will get absorbed I'm confused how is that possible and will I bleed heavily I just have been spotting?

Just spotting normal: After one triplet stops growing, your body will often reabsorb that embryo if it is still early in your pregnancy. The cells in that embryo break down, and your body reabsorbs the substances left behind. It is unlikely you will have heavy bleeding: spotting would be common. Good luck on the remaining twins! ...Read more

A nuvaring scenario I've been on the nuvaring for years now and once in a while after I have had my period and inserted a new one I bleed, but not like spotting, it's like a full on period and it lasts sometime weeks at a time. 3 weeks ago after completin

The: The bottom line here is that you are having heavy bleeding while exposed to the hormone contained in the ring. This could mean that you have some endometrial (uterine) hypertrophy (thickening) and you will likely need and endometrial biopsy (emb) to check the health of your uterus.
You should take an early prediction pregnancy test to be sure you are not pregnancy. Also stop using the ring until your doctor can figure out the cause of the bleeding. Lastly use a back-up method in the meantime (i.e. Condoms).

Also note your cycle continues as is until a period starts, when it starts you count that as day 1; the fact that you took the ring out early may cause your bleeding to start sooner than usual.

Good luck. ...Read more

I've been taking camrese for about five months for about 3 weeks I have been bleeding and spotting every day. So how much longer should this last?

I've been taking camrese for about five months for about 3 weeks I have been bleeding and spotting every day. So how much longer should this last?

Unusual: If you have been taking this birth control pill for 5 months without a problem, and now suddenly have bleeding for 3 weeks straight, then the possibilities include:
1. Normal side effect of the pill related to extreme thinning and fragility of the uterine lining
2. Pregnancy - check a test
3. The presence of something like a uterine polyp

this is a great discussion to have with your doctor. ...Read more
