Unprotected sex?: If you have not been in a long-term mutually monogamous relationship, both of whom are disease-free, get checked for an sexually transmitted disease. Also, an exam can detect if you have irritation of the cervix, which can sometimes bleed. Any new meds or supplements? If so, & not prescribed, stop.

It is common to have irregular bleeding at first as the receptors in the uterus are being primed and then periods usually become very light and you skip periods. Your negative pregnancy tests are not invalid. Hope this helps. ...Read more
