In brief: Irregular periods

Irregular periods are one of the most common problems gyn faces.
If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections or hormonal changes or abnormal cells on the cervix or trauma to cervix or vagina can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test.
