Ok so , I've got my period later one week , and it ended like usual. After a week , I got my period again and this time it is not ending , it has now been 13 days. I wouldn't say the flow is heavy or normal . Like for the past 7 days it has been very little spot only in the morning . So , I'm not sure why is there still spotting.


Hello, Hope you are safe and doing good. I understand from Ur query that u had a delayed period followed by continuous bleeding/ spotting. U have one episode of two months delay previously. May I know how long it's been since you started getting your periods.it would be helpful in advising you further. If there has been no sexual contact ( since your query didn't mention any), then the above mentioned changes in cycle length and flow in the first two years are part of the normal development process. However it would be advisable to get a complete blood count and thyroid tests done to rule out any other causes. Meanwhile pls keep a calender where u clearly mark the date u start periods and the length of Ur cycles..By 3-6 months it will give us a more clearer picture . Do not be anxious ,remain active ,sleep well. Changes to any of these also will affect your cycles. Hope this helps .. u can follow up for any further clarification. Thank you
