Bleeding

I noticed very light pink spotting on June 29th when I went to the restroom then on June 30th I had a light flow until July 2nd that fluctuated between bright red, dark red and brown. My cycles normally last 6 days is there a reason why it only last 3 days this month?

It is not unusual to have an irregular cycle. 

If you have had unprotected sex and are at risk for pregnancy or infection please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or with Corner Health Center. 

I'm supposed to start my cycle on 6/26 but a couple days earlier I noticed a small amount of blood the color was red and not light pink like spotting and a small amount of clotting in the toilet and the next few times I checked there was nothing, can you tell me what this could mean?

This most likely means your cycle is slightly irregular this month.  It is not uncommon.  It can be do to any changes in your life which can affect hormones. 

Continue to monitor your cycle.  

Call your PCP or Corner Health If you are sexually active and need contraception and/or sti testing.  

I had the depo injection twice so for 6 months then I missed my next one due to the virus. When I was on the depo I only had one period which lasted a very long time, I told my doctor and she said it was normal and it effects people differently. But since missing my last shot a couple of months ago myperiods are thick and brown. I just want to know if this is normal ?

Irregular bleeding is part of depo.  Yes it would be normal to have periods change.  

If you would like to restart depo or discuss another type of birth control schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner health Center

I missed my last depo shot by a few days. I had been bleeding for almost two weeks before I called and made sure what day it was, I had remembered the wrong date. I was still bleeding when I went and got my depo shot May 11th, I had unprotected sex the 19th. I took plan B that evening. Throughout this time (The two weeks before and even after shot) I would bleed on and off and then it went away to where when I would wipe it wasn't there but it was still there if something was inserted. It has come back and now it's brown. Like old blood. Is this normal?

  If you got a depo shot on May 11th you were protected against pregnancy on May 19th.  The use of Depo along with the Plan B that you took can cause irregular bleeding 

Hi I have been on the pill for 3 years and the past year every time I go to skip my period I still bleed like a regular period how do I stop this should I stop my pill for a week or month ??

If you want to skip a period while using the pill you need to start a new package after the third week of your pack.  If you need further information please contact your primary care provider or call Corner Health Center to discuss.  

I usually have regular periods but this month although I was due on the 10th I've been having really light, brown spotting since the 5th and I've still not started my actual period. I've not had this before is it normal? I haven't had sex for 6 months.

Periods can be irregular for a number of reasons.  Most women occasionally miss a period.  If this continues to be a concern please contact your primary care provider or schedule an appointment at Corner Health Center.   

When my partner fingers me or when we have intercourse, i bleed, why is that, i never have before

Bleeding during intercourse could be from irritation or infection.  Please schedule an appointment at Corner Health or with your primary care provider to get this checked out.

I'm 16 years old and have not had my period in 2 months. I went through a week of serve anxiety and wasn't sleeping or eating. I recently started on duloxetine for the anxiety. I have had cramping, discharge and some nausea. Last night my anxiety was heightened and woke up with terrible cramps and nausea. There is no chance of pregnancy. I know it is common to miss periods especially due to stress. Just making sure it doesn't seem like anything serve is going on.

It is not unusual to have irregular periods with anxiety, changes in sleep or diet.  

Talk to your health care provider if these symptoms continue 

Is it normal to have periods when on the shot but to stop after stopping the shot

It is not unusual to have irregular bleeding while on depo.  

Often times the bleeding does stop after a shot.
