I'm not sure if its just spotting but I got my period a week earlier than usual, I get my period monthly around the same time. I'm still like bleeding it's really light like heavy spotting, but the blood is dark doesn't really look like red blood like usual it's just dark like if it were dry blood. My period was really light this time but Im still spotting and its about to be 3 weeks since I started my period.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for coming to us with your concern about spotting that has lasted for three weeks.

The menstrual cycle is regulated by a delicate balance of hormones. Any disruption or imbalance will cause changes. Please contact your gynecologist or primary care physician. Spotting for three weeks is unusual and the cause must be found.

Could it have been the morning after pill?
