My period finished three days ago, but until today i'm still spotting a little on my underwear. I never spotted after my period before, so i'm a little bit worried about this. What could it be?

Thank you for your question. Did you have a light period this month? Sometimes when your period is light your period it can linger around for a little while longer then expected.

Sometimes this just happens to women for no real reason also. If you have a period that is consistently on a 28 day cycle then all of a sudden your body (hormones) change and then we have a 31 day cycle and we change…it just happens.

If you continue to have spotting, you should contact your physician. If this is the first time this has happened and only lasts a few days, I wouldn’t be too concerned. Here is a website that will be helpful http://www.articleclick.com/Article/Spotting-After-Period---What-Women-should-know/1072935.

Can you keep us updated?
