Dear Meg40,
I would check in with your health care provider. For example, a polyp in the lining of the uterus could do this. Another possibility even could be an early pregnancy, can do this: any chance of that? This could also easily be related to a strange ovulation-from stress or significant change in diet or exercise patterns. So do not worry: do check in with the health care provider, who will help you sort it out, and get it better.
good luck,
Mary Jane
