If that is negative, then discussing this further with your ob/gyn is warranted. It might not be a period at all. Abnormal bleeding has many causes including absent / irregular ovulation or anatomic changes.

It can happen again mid-cycle, so it would be helpful to keep a calendar to monitor the pattern. ...Read more
