    Girlfriend bleeds and spots between periods
    aroz21 posted:
    My girlfriend bleeds and spots in between periods, what is causing this to happen. It's affecting our sex life tremendously.
    aroz21 responded:
    We've been dating for 8 months and when we started dating she told me that this happens sometimes usually between the 2nd and 3rd week before the next period. It was manageable for a while but the last few months she's been bleeding and spotting just about all the time and she is getting very self conscious about it and it makes her not want to have sex. She uses the birth control patch but she has used the pill in the past and had the same issue. Her doctor has done blood tests and an ultrasound but they could never diagnose the problem. I'm looking for any suggestion to help figure out how to control this bleeding so this doesn't ruin our relationship.
