It is difficult to know for certain, but you can count July 15th as the first day of your last period, since you had bleeding for 4 days. This should provide the best estimate for when your next period will begin.

It also helps to know the dates of all of your previous periods (just the start date; it really does not matter how long each period is). You will see a trend if all of your periods begin within 28-days of one another, and if you just had one month that was "off" with breakthrough bleeding. Or, if you notice that you have many months with several days of mid-cycle bleeding...this is all important information to know from tracking on a calendar.

Hi Anon,

Thanks for your question. It was a little difficult to understand you but if I read correctly, you had a period on the 19th of June then on July 3rd you started spotting and on July 15th when your period came it was light and gone within 4 days-- correct?

It is very common to have something called mid-cycle bleeding or spotting sometimes especially if you are on birth control pills. Sometimes when hormones shift or there is an imbalance you'll notice some spotting. A light period is a period even if you are used to a heavier flow-- so if your July period lasted 3-4 days, that's fine. Have you spotted again this month? If this was a one time incident and you continue having a regular period from here on out I would say that the spotting is likely caused by a change in hormones. If there's any chance you could have been pregnant taking a pregnancy test never hurts.

All the best,
