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.

Just switched BControl brands, now have bright red:orange blood after period has ended. Is this cause for concern?

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.

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.

Take a test: 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.

See your provider.: Irregular menstrual bleeding is extremely common and there are MANY different possibilities. At the very least, you should see your gynecologist or primary care provider. Fortunately, it sounds like you don't have very much bleeding at this time, so it is certainly not an emergency. But you should not let this go unchecked. Check it out and nip it in the bud before it becomes a real problem.

Miscarriage?: It's possible that there has been a miscarriage. It would be a good idea to do a pregnancy test. If positive seek care. If negative ok to watch for 1-2 months. But seek care if irregular bleeding continues past that time.

I've had a brownish clear discharge with some stringy brown "tissue" in it. It stopped I saw a bit of bright red blood one time never got period.?

Implantation?: If you have had unprotected sex - there could be spotting due to implantation if pregnant. When the embryo implants into the uterine wall- it can cause pink discharge, brown discharge or sometimes small amounts of red blood in white secretions. It is appropriate to take a pregnancy test since you missed your period.

It could be: Premenstrual/ implantation bleeding, a sign of early pregnancy, vaginal infection etc. See your gyn for any concerns. Take care! Http://www. Livestrong. Com/article/115891-causes-menstrual-spotting/#page=1.

Bright red blood: The first day of the menstrual cycle is also the first day of your menstrual period and that is the very first day you observe bright red blood. Brown spotting is not considered a menstrual period. - See more at: http://www. Babymed. Com/menstrual-cycle/when-is-the-first-day-of-my-menstrual-cycle-period#sthash. ZXRAjC7f.dpuf

See your MD: There are many reasons for abnormal bleeding including, hormonal imbalance, thyroid or other medical problems and stress. Fibroids, polyps, thickened lining and adenomyosis (endometriosis of the uterus) may also cause abnormal bleeding. Your doctor will diagnose your problem and make a treatment plan with you if needed.

Period discharge: From what you describe sounds very normal. As long as you are not having any pain (other than your cramps) no foul odor to the discharge and no fevers, I would not be concerned. Hope this helps.

What does it mean when you bleed two days before your period should start? It is bright red blood and only notcible one time when I wipe after using the bathroom so it makes me think my period has started. My actual period starts 2-3 days later.

Slight variation: A few days of variation for starting your menstrual cycle is not particularly abnormal. If you are not satisfied with your level of menstrual cycle control consider starting birth control. Birth control methods can give you short light periods that are quite predictable.
