Period Confusion?
An_250693 posted:
I had my period about two weeks ago and it wasn't really normal, and now I'm bleeding again. It started off as spotting but now it's more like a period. I also skipped my period last month. Could this be a sign of something bad? Or could I be pregnant?

Not all vaginal bleeding is due to menstruation. There may be other medical reasons for abnormal vaginal bleeding. Pregnancy typically isn't one of them since in pregnancy menstruation stops.

Some of the other medical reasons for abnormal vaginal bleeding can be quite serious. Thus, if this continues it would be a very good idea to make an appointment with your gynecologist to discuss this matter with them.
