2 periods 1 week apart?
stefanilynn posted:
I had my regular period that lasted 6 days as usual for me. Exactly 7 days later I had light pink spotting that lasted for 2 days. The next day after the spotting stopped I started having a regular flow like a period and it's bright red, sometimes with clots and I have been bleeding like this for 3 days now. I am not on the pill and no chance of being pregnant. I am also only 33 so I don't think it could have anything to do with menopause. Any ideas on what could be wrong? I can't get ahold of my doctor until tuesday and I'm quite worried. Thanks

While we cannot diagnose what this might be, this second episode is not a menstrual period.

The most common reasons for abnormal vaginal bleeding are uterine fibroids; benign growths in the uterus that can expand into blood vessels, causing this bleeding.
