Please Help! What can cause bleeding before period is due?

Ronda - posted on 01/06/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




My LO is 20 months old and we are still nursing. My period did not come back until LO was 12 months old and has not been very regular since. Yesterday I had a bit of spotting even though my period is not due for about a week. The last one was Dec 13, the previous one Nov 15, and the one before that October 15.
The spotting is very minimal, and light pink, to not quite reddish. It happened a little yesterday and a little today. It was not even enough for a liner, never mind a pad. I remember having some implantation bleeding when I was pregnant with LO. It was like this, but for only one day? Has anyone had it happen more than one day? Pregnancy is a possibility since it was the right timing, the only catch being that DH had a recent vasectomy, although he never got tested yet to see if it worked.
If it could be anything else please let me know what happened to you. The clinic is closed until tomorrow and I am kind of freaking out. Thanks!!

Well first of all it can take 6 months for a vasectomy to work. I've never had that experience with bleeding like that but I know that your body doesn't always cycle normally when you're still breastfeeding. For me that usually means that I can not ovulate for one to three months at a time after my period comes back for as long as I am breastfeeding. But every woman is different. Maybe take a pregnancy test and work from there. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
