I have just had a bit of bleeding after my period has stopped.

Resolved Question:

Hi, I have just had a bit of bleeding after my period has stopped. My period ended on Sunday and yesterday afternoon which was Wednesday I had a bloody discharge a rust colour. I thought it had stopped I had no bleeding during the night and none this morning but when I went to the toilet just now there was a bit of blood. I have never had this before and my periods are pretty regular every 30 days. I'm 30yrs old. Hope you can help. Thanks.

Hello
The most common cause would be hormonal changes.
All sorts of things can through off your cycle and cause this.
Liver or kidney problems.
Any infection.
Thyroid problems.
Not eating or not sleeping.
Stress.
A lesion in the uterus such as a fibroid.
Pregnancy [implantation bleeding] although unlikely.
This should prompt a call to your doctor, a general exam, uterine exam, and any testing as indicated by exam, but, it is most likely not a problem.
You should have a pregnancy test as well.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
