Welcome to ehealthforum

Spotting could be due to hormonal fluctuations,pregnancy,ovarian cysts,fibroids,stress etc.You might be experiencing menopausal symptoms and so the periods may be decreased and you are having spotting due to hormonal imbalances.It also causes hot flushes,mood swings,bloated abdomen,decreased libido etc.
Kindly visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation and you might be prescibed some medications.

Take Care!
