    Period question
    cgmomof2 posted:
    I am 38 years old and I had something odd happen. I just got off my period on 11-28 or 29th and I went to the bathroom and I am again bleeding as though I have started again. I am not on birth control, my husband has had a vasectomy many years ago. I did have a little pain in my lower stomach a couple of days ago. Felt like I was ovulating but I am not sure.
    What is going on?

    No one on an internet board can tell you what is going on. If it's more than spotting (I get that sometimes even a few days after going off my period) I'd call your doctor.
