Welcome to ehealthforum,
Few women are known to have spotting even after finishing with periods as a result of uterine contractions trying to push or expel pending blood and tissues (it can also lead to abdominal cramps associated with spotting). If the spotting and cramps have occurred after 8-10 days of your first day of menstrual bleeding, these could also suggest ovulation. If the symptoms persist, it should not be ignored. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on evaluation results) would be started to help you control the spotting and regulate periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
