    Default Brown spotting 5 days before period. Help

    This is my second period off the pill after withdrawal bleed. Im am 34 and am wondering what this means.
    I have brown spotting for 5 days from day 28, then 7 days of heavy period this is the second time in a row.
    Has anyone had this and had it cleared up after a few cycles or is there something wrong?
    Please help

    Hi, I've had the spotting for the last few periods.

    It's normal for some people, bit sometimes spotting can indicate a progesterone imbalance. I'm currently seeing an acupuncturist to try and rectify the spotting. My period is due at the end of next week so we will see if anything has changed!

    I should add too, coming off the pill can do lots of strange thing!!

    I wouldn't be concerned for at least a couple of more cycles.

    I had this for a few cycles before we fell pregnant. I would spot for about 4 days, then get my period.

    It actually ended up stopping after about 3 months of this. If it hadn't, I was planning on going to the doctor as it could mean that your progesterone levels are out of whack which can make TTC difficult.

    If it continues for a few months and you want to TTC, then I'd get it checked out just in case.
