Hi , this is probably too much information but I would like some advice .
So I had a period at the start of the month ; which was 7 days long like my usual periods (once a month every month) but this month , a week after my first period I got another . Which started out as light spotting with the colour brown/black ; 2 day later my period got much more heavier , small little blood clots and is extremely dark black in colour . This has gone on for over a week now . This is very unusual for me . Any advice or solutions ?
Thank you

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The midcycle spotting that you describe could be due to hormonal derangements, ovulation, thyroid abnormality, endometritis, cervical dysplasia, cervical erosion etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. If the symptoms have been persistent, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the midcycle vaginal bleeding that you describe. Treatment as needed (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the bleeding and regulate periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
