I am on Duphaston from day 16-23 of my cycle. I got my period on 25 feb, ovulated on 6/7 march and now spotting 10&11 march - what does this mean?

Hard to pinpoint: Don't know why you are on a progestin 16-23 or if you're trying for a pregnancy. Ovulation kits turn positive 2 days before ovulation (physical ovulation), so you probably ovulated on 3/9 or so. Estradiol drops significantly after ovulation on post ov day 1 and 2. Some people will have some bleeding with that drop in hormone. Headaches are also common at this time for some. Good luck. ...Read more

I have been bleeding since feb 28 and still spotting I got my shot on the 18. Why I keep spotting on and off.

Probably normal.: I would guess the shot you had was depo-provera, the birth control injection you get once every three months. Irregular bleeding is, unfortunately, reasonably common after that injection. It may lessen with time. If it becomes a continuing problem, your gynecologist may sometimes suggest short-term estrogen medication that may help. ...Read more

Thin lining: You could have a very thin lining (endometrium) due to the long use of a progesterone-dominant contraceptive. Break through bleeding can occur in that situation. Definitely check a pregnancy test to rule that out. A sonogram could tell you if the lining is thin. A polyp can cause irregular bleeding but you would need testing (sonohysterogram) to diagnose that. You may need estrogen add back. ...Read more

Why am I still spotting 6 weeks after total hysterectomy?

Why am I still spotting 6 weeks after total hysterectomy?

Cuff bleeding: The apex of the vagina is closed and as it heals, it can bleed a little bit. It is common for a little bit of spotting to occur after a hysterectomy. Rarely, if the cervix or part of the uterus is left behind, there can be residual endometrial cells that can produce cyclic bleeding. Talk to the surgeon and a post operative exam can help you identify the culprit. Best wishes. Dr M ...Read more

Spotting/active pill: Spotting is generally associated with taking the low dose oral BCP at intervals greater than 24 hours. Sometimes estrogen withdrawal can occur when the estrogen is depleted. Take the active pills within the hour of the previous day's active pill to minimize this type of bleeding issue. The effectiveness is not affected, however. Placebos are taken for 7 days, and pregnancy is still avoided. ...Read more
