Spotting after Running
Nevergivup posted:
Here is my issue I need some feed back please if you can help.

I workout 6 days a week; alternating between running and weight training.. On my running days I always end up spotting for the remainder of the day or sometimes just for half of the day after my run. I workout hard but I only seem to have that problem on my running days.

Please help me understand.

Hi Nevergivup,

Check in on the Women's Health Community. It's a great resource and Jane Harrison-Hohner will have an answer for you.

Take care,

I had the same problem and occasionally I would also get very bad cramps that lasted about 20 minutes. Finally fibroids were diagnosed and uterus removed and the problem resolved
