SPOTTING BETWEEN PERIODS: REASONS IT HAPPENS

Spotting is defined as light vaginal bleeding that happens outside of your regular periods.

Spotting is quite normal. Spotting is usually related to ovulation.

When you notice spotting, make sure it happens around the time of ovulation. 

Ovulation takes place about 14 days before menstruation, so just take note of how many days later your period starts. 

If you are spotting at different times in your menstrual cycle, or if the bleeding consists of more than a few drops, talk to your doctor to make sure everything is OK.
