How long can spotting last during perimenopause and is it normal? I have had 3 colposcapies in the last 10 years and they have all been normal.
Spotting @ 55: Perimenopause can cause lightened or absent periods with spotting. However, endometrial cancer also presents in the same way. Colposcopies are not the prime way to assess the endometrium as it looks at the endocervical canal and cervix itself and not the endometrium. An endometrial biopsy will tell you and your MD much more about why you are spotting if this is worrisome. ...Read more

Each party in the "connection carries 23 chromosomes to make a baby. ...Read more

I've had some normal spotting during ovulation. But now I have some small clotting as well. Is this normal during ovulation?
Get checked : Bleeding heavy enough to cause clotting is not normal midcycle. It may be that you don't have anything serious going on, but you really should be evaluated to know for certain.

For the past week I have been spotting when I wake up in the morning but not bleeding at all during any other point in the day. What's going on?
Spotting: Would check HCG, could be pooling overnight so in the AM there is enough to spot whereas during the day the amounts are so miniscule, it is not visible.
