    vaginal spotting
    An_193254 posted:
    About 3wks ago i was diagnosed with having a bladder/kidney infection. The dr gave me a 10day prescription for trimethoprim. The symptoms cleared up and i felt better. This morning i woke to notice light spotting when i used the bathroom. I dont wanna sound paranoid and keep going to dr.but, usually if my period comes on i get a sign of light cramping, but now i have a light back pain. How do i kno if this is my cycle just coming on early or if this is still the infection that didnt fully clear up??
