I know there are a few other threads here about this but they all seem to be related to pills or meds etc.
For the past 3 or 4 cycles I have had random spotting & cramping in between periods. I have no idea what is causing it. I am not on birth control and I am not on any prescription meds. I have taken pregnancy tests and all are negative.
I haven’t had a pap test in a few years so I have called and I have an appointment tomorrow.
I am really concerned, wondering if any other bees have experienced something similar? I really hope it is nothing serious.

@CarterLove: I’m sure it’s nothing to worry about. However, you should really be having a pap every year. So go in and get checked out, talk to your gyno, and put your mind at ease. 🙂

@CarterLove: something similar happened to me when I was a teenager, and was due to a hormonal imbalance. The doctors put me on the pill for a few cycles (even though I was not sexually active) to “reset” my system.
Either way, I am glad you’re getting it checked out. Hopefully it’s nothing serious.

This happened to me and it turned out to be an ovarian cyst. They’re super common apparently. My doctor put me on birth control and it took care of the symptoms.

Thanks ladies! It’s amazing how common this is! I just have to try to not think of the worst.

I had the same thing happen during the months I was planning my wedding
I contributed it to stress….. once the wedding was over the problem stopped…
MD also contributed it to stress since all exams were normal,,,
I am sure you have nothing to worry about……

@californiabride2013: I wondered if it was stress but I don’t know… Thanks for the suggestion. You could be right.

When i had random spotting my dr made me do a test for chlamydia. It wasnt that and he never found a cause.

It happened when I was really under physical stress and it was really hot.
