Yes: Brown equals old blood. If this is right after your period then you are just passing some of the blood that has been siting at the back of the vagina. Nine-day periods are pretty long. You may want to consider birth control to help regulate and decrease the amount of bleeding. ...Read more

I have irregular periods but for 3 weeks now I've been spotting. Small cramps sometimes. And not sexually active. Why hasn't it stopped? No hospital.

I have irregular periods but for 3 weeks now I've been spotting. Small cramps sometimes. And not sexually active. Why hasn't it stopped? No hospital.

Spotting: Vaginal spotting may be caused by polyps, either on the cervix or inside the uterus, by uterine fibroids, or by some infections, and occasionally some genital tract cancers. Sometimes people mistake urinary tract bleeding for vaginal spotting, which is an important distinction. You probably don't need to go to a hospital at this point, but please schedule an appointment with a gynecologist soon. ...Read more

Tests for what?: What are you trying to diagnose with blood tests? It would be appropriate to consult a gynecologist who may do a health assessment and decide as to what tests would be appropriate. It is not a do it yourself venture.

See gynecologist: The irregularity of your periods should be evaluated as you may have some hormonal imbalances that need to be confirmed. In addition, the firmness of your lower abdomen should also be examined to make sure that there is not an anatomic irregularity of your gynecologic organs or surrounding structures that is causing this, or infection that is developing in the pelvic area. See gynecologist ...Read more

Consult an OB/Gyn: Although this is not the expected pattern for a woman's menstrual pattern it dose happen with some frequency. The ob/gyn can often give you some answers about how ocp's can create predictable cycles & the impact of this pattern on your daughters fertility later on.

What could cause light spotting for a month? 30, healthy, no birth control and not sexually active with very irregular periods. Thanks!

2 ideas: I typically divide irregular bleeding into 2 categories. One is architectural, there's a polyp or fibroid in your uterus causing irregular bleeding. The other is hormonal, your balance of estrogen and Progesterone is off. Other ideas are thyroid and pituitary. Your doc can run tests to check all of these. Extremes of weight can also cause. Best of luck finding an answer! ...Read more

Is a normal for vagina to be itching everytime my period is finish. I'm not sexually active?

Yes: Some women will experience cyclic bacterial or yeast overgrowth, frequently this will occur at the time of the menstrual period. Often the symptoms resolve without treatment. Some female sanitary products (pads/tampons/etc) contain perfumes and/or deodorants which can cause an allergic reaction, which could also explain the type symptoms you are describing. ...Read more

See below: If you are not sexually active and not on a birth control pill, and it is the first time it has happened, I would not be concerned. If you are on the pill, you should contact your doctor, although breakthrough bleeding is not uncommon. If you have had your period for less than 2 years, this can be common also. If you are having pain or frequency when urinating, you should be checked for a urine infection. ...Read more
