    OK this is embarrassing but this is freaking me out I had my period two weeks ago but a week later i got it again and it has not stopped it has been a week and two days. At first it was blood then after it was discharge but the blood has started up again, is something wrong?

    It is important to keep in mind that all episodes of vaginal bleeding do not represent a menstrual period.

    In other words, there can be other medical issues that can cause abnormal bleeding (things like uterine polyps, for example).

    Because this bleeding has started it up again it would be a very good idea to make an appointment with your gynecologist to get this abnormal bleeding looked into medically.
