Spotting but no period

I have had spotting for four days but no period. I am extremely worried since I've never missed a period before. I am definitely not pregnant. Ever since I stopped taking birth control four years ago, I have had spotting for three or four days before my period and then bleeding for 4 or 5 others days. The first two days of bleeding are heavy but the rest are quite light. My cycles vary from 27 days to 34. The past two months, I've had very short cycles of 25 and 26 days. This cycle involved only four days of spotting. I also had a terrible migraine during the spotting a low grade fever. The migraine and fever are now gone but I do not have a period. I am 31 years old. My annual exam was two weeks ago and my pap smear was normal. My gyn didn't seem to have any concerns.

You may have not ovulated and no ovulation usually means no period. It's common and will happen to most women at least once during their reproductive years.
