I went to the Doctor a couple weeks ago when I was diagnosed with Vaginosis. They took a urine sample first, but when they brought back the results they questioned the fact that there wasn't blood in the urine but at the time I was on my period. What could this entail? It scares me because I had some weird spotting a few days before I started my period. They didn't go into detail with why it may have been that way but I'm worried. I am currently on yaz birth control. Can you help?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The midcycle bleeding/spotting could be due to hormonal contraceptive use, pregnancy, ovulation bleeding, hormonal imbalances etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful examination and investigations. Wait and watch for your test results and periods. Consider using additional protection when having intercourse while you are on any other medications (especially antibiotics) as they can affect efficacy of your birth control and put you at risk for pregnancy. Be in regular follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist.
Take care.
