Period again??

I'm 37.. I got my menstrual sep 8th very very light. The 4th day it got heavy for an hour and basically stopped.. On the 18th I woke up to spotting.. Light pink, then dark red, then next day it was brown and here I am 7 days later bright red. I have no cramping, no pain and I'm not soaking through any tampons or pads.. I'm urinating more than usual but I think that's because I keep going to check if I'm bleeding.. Could it be my period again and since it was so light the week before my uterus didn't shed? Thank you

Thank you Kristen. Dr said my blood work was normal.. It is slowing down a lot and I pray tomorrow it's gone.. I'm really thinking its my fibroids but if it doesn't stop by Monday I will be going to Gyno.. Thank you for your reply..

Hi Michele,

Thank you for sharing your question about your menstrual cycle with the EmpowHER community. I hope that you got my response to your ASK about back to back periods.

I am hoping that you get some great responses from within the community about women who share similar experiences. 

I still would suggest putting in a call to your doctor.
