In brief: Hormone balance

Abnormal vaginal bleeding usually resulting from a hormonal imbalance.
The amount of estrogen needed in the proliferative stage varies for each woman. The type of abnormal bleeding is a reflection of the level of estrogen released. For example, women with lower-levels of estrogen will have intermittent spotting while those with higher levels will have less spotting.
