I'm a little confused as to what you are experiencing now...is this correct:

1. For past 3 months, you are having spotting during your period on the 6th & 7th day
2. For past 3 months, you are having heavy bleeding during your period on the 2nd day
3. For past 10 months, you are having slight pain for a few seconds in lower left abdomen and hips during your period

From your description, this sounds like a normal period that most women experience. Women's periods can change over time, or can change from cycle-to-cycle; that sounds like your primary question (is it OK for a period to change).

For more information, please review: How to Know if Your Period is Normal

If you are ever concerned about pain that you are experiencing, be sure to talk with your doctor about this. Since it has been going on for 10 months, it may be the normal pain/discomfort from your period. Talk with your doctor during your next annual exam, as s/he can check this area for any possible pre-conditions.

Hi Anonymous,
If you are experiencing these different symptoms, you should really contact your physician. It would be hard for us to suggest a possible diagnosis as we can guide you about some things or provide you further information but your physician should ultimately be contacted for these symptoms.

Can you please keep us updated on what he or she says?
