Hey my girlfriend just recently had her periods, about 1 and a half weeks/2weeks ago. This afternoon while in the bathroom she noticed she was spotting blood but its thicker than usual & its not a lot. She says its with discharge. Its been 2weeks after her menstrual cycle & we want to understand what could be causing this? Please help.
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The spotting in midcycle time could suggest ovulation, breakthrough bleeding. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. If the symptoms persist, she should consider visiting her doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the midcycle vaginal bleeding that she describes. Treatment as needed (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help her control the symptoms and regulate periods. She should be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
