My period ended about a week ago and now this morning when I got up I had some brown bleeding and then the next time I went to the bathroom it was more of a reddish blood and then after that it was brown again. I have never really had this before. My periods are not regular but this has never happened so soon after my period ends. Is this ok or is there something wrong?

Bleeding a four days after my period ended?
I have the same exact problem as you and I am very worrried because this has never happened to me before. I'm guessing this may be because a week ago I had protected sex and my boyfriend maybe hit the cervix too hard and maybe I have a cut or something. I tried to make an appointment to a ob/gyne, but I have to wait a few days, but someone told me over the phone that this is probably due to stress and a hormonal imbalance that many women have this issue. She added that obviously she can't due a pap until the bleeding stops.

That's odd. I came onto this site because I have the same problem. My period ended a week and a half ago, but I started bleeding. I'm not cramping like I usually am, but I'm bleeding really heavy-heavier than my normal periods usually are by far! I hope we get our question answered, it's a little concerning when I don't know what it is. My mother is afraid I may have gotten pregnant and had a miscarriage and never knew it. She said that could be one reason I'm bleeding as hard as I am. I really sincerely hope not, but I just want to know what it could be!

I am also experiencing similar symptoms. I have always had a pretty regular and mild period. Then this month about a week after my period I started a very light bleeding, sometimes brown and has been going on for 5 days now. I'm hoping to find out something more specific as to what it could be besides just a hormone imbalance.

I have been having the same problem since may. my period would start then almost stop but still with some bleeding until i had my period in june. it stopped last week when i was on my honeymoon but now its back. i went to my doc today and she said its probably just from stress from the wedding. i did go to the gyno and everything was normal. hope this helps anyone.

I'm having exactly what everyone is describing. I was so surprised when I searched it in google. I'm on the pill, regular light periods. I had a mix up with my pills and forget the package and couldn't take them. I'm worried I'm prego. But hormonal changes make a lot of sense. I started bleeding a week after my period and its been going for just under two weeks.

WOW!! So many people having the same problem as me! This last month my period came and it was normal- VERY painful, but I have endometriosis so it's not weird to have bad pains. A week after my period ended I started to bleed, and heavier then my normal periods, it lasted three days and I had absolutely no pain like I normally do. This has NEVER happened to me before. I took seasonique but only for two days because it made me so sick, but I took those on Monday and Tuesday and didn't start "spotting" till that following Sunday, so I don't think it was the birth control. Please if any of you find anything out or figure out whats going on post it, I'm really curious as to whats going on.

Thanks girls!!

Wow, ok so I guess I'm not alone here! My period ended just about a week and a half ago and now I've started so light bleeding again. I thought this was weird because at 18 my cycle has finally leveled itself out and I'm normally on a pretty good 28 day cycle, give or take a few days. This morning I had a few cramps, but I thought it was my stomach because it's too early for my period. My mother said it could be stress (it wouldn't be pregnancy because I'm a virgin). Sometimes a google search is pretty darn useful...any ideas?

omg! at least i am not the only one....i started my period about 8 days ago but last night i started bleeding its really light pink and only when i wipe...i was worried i was pregnant at first because my period was a bout a week and 1/2 late and that i started to miss carry.my nephew had hit me in the stomach and i started to bleed and have very bad cramps but the cramps only lasted like an hour. and if i miss carried it would have been worse...i think? but now about a week later im bleeding really light and idk what to do im only 17 and me and my BF dont use protection. and he thinks the egg might be implanting. so yea if anyone finds out please do tell the rest.

Bit of a relief to read i,m not alone in this.

I'm 45, and (although this has never happened before) i started bleeding a week after my period ended. The first 2 days was only when i wiped & red pinkish, but 3rd day (today)is a bit more (not heavy like usual)and red.

I,m kinda worried as any of us would be, but due to my age i,m praying it's due to hormonal changes and nothing more sinister!!

Hope we all find an answer:)

Hi I'm worried too. I'm 40 have regular periods which are heavy at times. I was sterilized 5 yrs ago, was told the periods would revert back to when I was younger, I have had my normal cycle for 7 days, have been clear of bleeding for 10 days and suddenly I've had a bright red bleed , no pain and not as heavy . But I'm worried also .. I hope some one can shed some light .. X

haha a lot of people are having the same situation as me. I started my period on Nov. 15th and ended on the 21st. So it was a regular period and then I started spotting on the 27th which was almost a week later and its a brownish pinkish color and there is barely any there...not even enough to wear a tampon and sometimes it only shows when I wipe, this has been going on for about three days now. I was thinking it could be implantation bleeding but i thinks its too soon for that...

i guess the only ppl who can answer any of our possabilities are the docs.....c'mon docs! 17 queries on here and no answers from the pros!!.......please?

Personaly i'm on day 6 now of what has turned into 'heavy' bleeding and bright red!(all started a week after my period ended) Shocked

still cant get my smear till bleeding stops, but WILL make apt. if it's not stopped by weekend regardless of smear just to hopefully test for what ever it is that's going on!.... i,m hoping due to my age (45) it's hormones Question ...this has never happened to me before and i,m very concerned...think i need a drink to calm my nerves LOL


Good luck girls...hope all is well x

I was hoping a reason would be posted as I'm having the same problem. I'm 35, was diagnosed with endometriosis 5 years ago and had laproscopic surgery. No problems since then but I was told symptoms would come back in about 3 years, which obviously I've surpassed. I had a normal period. Finished all that up and started having brown discharge a week after I'd been done. I have some weird cramping going on and the brown seems to be getting heavier.. Not super bad. I can get away with a pantiliner but I'm getting pretty concerned..
