I'm having semi heavy mid cycle bleeding with light cramping....I am not pregnant. Should I be concerned?

Consider an endometrial ablation if you are done having children. ...Read more
For the first time, I've been having medium to heavy mid-cycle bleeding for 10 days now with cramps. I'm sexually active. What could it be?
See doctor ASAP: Any unexplained vaginal bleeding needs professional evaluation. There are several potential causes, including endocrine (hormone) problems, uterine or cervical diseases like pre-cancer, STDs, and pregnancy, maybe with impending miscarriage. All are more or less likely depending on sexual lifestyle and partnerships, contraceptive method, and so on. See a doctor (preferably gyn) ASAP. Good luck. ...Read more
I ovulated 25-30 oct, 31 had brown discharge w cramping, period doesn't start until 13 nov. Is this mid cycle bleeding? This has never hpd.
Old blood: Most of the time, brown spotting or bleeding represents older blood that the uterus, cervix or upper vagina had been "holding onto" for various reasons. W/ the cramping I would guess uterus as the source. It very well may be midcycle bleeding due to ovulation or other ovulatory abnormalities. I don't see a birth control method; sometimes that causes unscheduled bleeds. If continues, have an exam done. ...Read more

Unlikely: Your menstrual cycles are fairly regular, but can vary by up to a week occasionally, mostly when you are very young or perimenopausal. Your age would suggest you are neither of these. I think this is spotting, and if it's light and goes away, this perfectly normal. If you are concerned, see an OB for an exam and more specific answers ...Read more
I have never had mid cycle bleeding or spotting. However starting yesterday (cycle day 17 and today cycle day 18) I had very light pink spotting. There's no cramps or any feeling like with a normal menstrual cycle. Just feels like a little pinch once in
It happens sometimes: Many women have occasional variation of their mucus discharge, some spotting between periods, a heavier period, a lighter period, a longer or shorter period, or even a missed period. Having one or two of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean there is a medical problem, but a visit to one’s primary care or Ob-Gyn doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. ...Read more

See GYN...: Depends upon what is causing the bleeding; "normal" menses cycle; or dysfunctional uterine bleeding?

Better for you to have your existing gyn examine you and then take it from there. ...Read more

Had mid cycle bleeding/spotting 10 days before actual due P. Lasted 5 days. Why? And will I still get my scheduled period in a few days?
Mid-cycle bleed: It's not possible to tell why you had mid-cycle bleeding from the information posted. Also impossible to say whether the next period will come when expected. If having sex, first make sure you're not pregnant by running a home urine pregnancy test. If negative, repeat in 7 days. If both negative, it's ok to watch if the cycle gets back to normal next month. If not, seek care to figure out cause. ...Read more
To clarify, is it really necessary to have a small uterine polyp removed in a 28 yr old with mid cycle bleeding? I don't have bleeding every cycle.
Uterine polyps: Uterine polyps are benign growths in the lining of the uterus. They may cause bleeding when twisted to cut off blood supply and result in degeneration. This bleeding does not usually coincide with typical mid-cycle spotting or bleeding from ovulation, so it is not common to have to remove a polyp for :mid-cycle" bleeding, since polyps do not generally cause this to happen at that time. ...Read more

OR the mid cycle bleeding could indicate pregnancy. Take a pregnancy test if having unprotected sex ...Read more
