Not likely: The color of menstrual blood is not particularly useful. If this occurred after your period you may just be passing the blood left over in the vagina. Monitor and see if it continues over the next cycles.

Irregular cycle: This is most likely just an irregular period. At 41, it is common to have irregular period cycles and are often part of the 'peri menopause' phase before menopause. Menopause is one full year with no period. Peri-menopause is that transition time and periods often become frequent and / or irregular. Did you do a pregnancy test? Talk to your doctor about starting hormones to help.

Unprotected sex 2 days after period ended, 19 days later had some bright pink blood while in shower. Implantation?

A person can't tell: Wait. A positive pregnancy test can tell a woman that PRIOR spotting was actually implantation spotting. It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period.

Vag Bleeding: Abnormal vaginal bleeding has many possible causes. By itself, it does not necessarily indicate a serious condition. But if it has been happening for a month you should see your GYN doctor. Http://www. Webmd. Com/women/tc/abnormal-vaginal-bleeding-topic-overview#1

Break through: Break through bleeding can occur due to hormonal imbalance. Brown blood is usually old blood being cleaned from the uterus. Hopefully, this resolves. If it happens for 3 or more cycles please consult with your gynecologist.

What does red tinged stretchy mucus mean 2 days after period. Plus spotting I have had sex prior and after period ended?

More than one likely: Reason. The discharge may be just residual part of your period. You may have some lesion on the cervix that may be bleeding/spotting due to the trauma of sex. If the spotting persists, it would be prudent to see your doctor for an examination.

Period ended yesterday finishing with brown discharge, I had sex day after period "ended" and bled red again? Worried it's sinister. Thankyou :)

Not sinister: Difficult, but not impossible to get pregnant at the end of your cycle. If unprotected, do a home pregnancytest.

Had unprotected sex 2days after period ended (he claims to not finish) took planb 24hrs later. Now (6days later) red streaks & light spotting. What?

Had unprotected sex 2days after period ended (he claims to not finish) took planb 24hrs later. Now (6days later) red streaks & light spotting. What?

Expected: Plan b is a hormone and taking it increases that level of hormone temporarily. When you do that and that level drops back off you often times have spotting or breakthrough bleeding. Plan b is not 100%, though you did take it within 24 hours, which is prefered. Consider checking a pregnancy test 14-21 days after you took the Plan B just to be safe.

3 days after period ended tiny blood clots the size of a dot came out & when I wipe there is light pink brown blood, help?

Hormonal imbalance: 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. Consult this site for more information on this topic. Http://www. Nichd. Nih.

No dry days after period ended. Went from blood to white cervical mucus immediately. This isn't normal for me... What is it?

Normal: This is a variation of normal. As long as your period was otherwise normal, don't worry about it. Good luck.

Unrelated: The spotting after your period is likely unrelated to the sex you had 2 weeks ago. If you had unprotected intercourse 2 weeks ago and then had a period, you're likely not pregnant. The fact that you had this breakthrough bleeding or residual period bleeding is unrelated. If you want to have more predictable cycles, a birth control pill can help with that as it will stop breakthrough bleeding.

Breakthrough bleed: OLd vaginal blood mixed the vaginal and cervical mucous. As you mature this should normalize. If you are worried you will need a pelvic exam and bacterial culture of the discharge.

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections ; hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit.

Could be related: To temporary hormonal imbalance. If bleeding is off for 3 cycles would consider gynecological consult.
