I took a UTI it was neg. I have been urinating alot and I have choppy cramps and headaches like I am getting ready to start but they go away. I am not sure what is going on do you have any ideas?

According to the data you provided, you might have experienced a normal menstrual period that was a bit unusual. In other words, it's possible that your period started, experienced a pause and then manifested as spotting in order to complete the cycle.

If this condition repeats during the next period of menstruation, you might want to visit your gynecologist.
