Hi. I had my last period on May 20th, then I got it again on June 22, but it was brownish red and today it's spotting and bright red. I had 2 pregnancy tests and they both came back negative. I'm not sure what's going on.

That's really not so unusual; it used to happen to me, too. I'd have a really heavy period one month, and a spotty one like you described the next. It sounds like you might simply have some residue that hasn't been completely expelled. I used to use a vinegar-based douche and that would take care of the problem.

If you experience spotting next month that doesn't quite seem right, do ask your gynecologist about it.
