I had my period about 10 days ago and all finished. Now

Customer Question

Hi. I had my period about 10 days ago and all finished. Now this morning I have light vaginal bleeding. The same thing happened last month yet again about 10 days after my period. This isn't normal for me as until this month and last month I haven't suffered bleeding between periods before. I have stage 4 endo with bowel and uterus stuck together and I'm 27. The past 4 months or so I have suffered more with endo bowel symptoms And back pain! My question is, is this endo causing the bleeding? I'm getting really worried that something else is wrong with me. I always worry about things like cancer and stuff because I feel ill a lot of the time right now. This is getting me really down emotionally too and I'm so worried and anxious all the time.

Endometriosis doesn't generally cause abnormal bleeding.If the bleeding is only for a day, it's likely due to ovulation, as some women will get bleeding around the time of ovulation due to the drop in estrogen.If your periods are generally regular, I wouldn't worry about a little spotting like this. Cancer is highly unlikely to be the cause.If your periods aren't so regular, then there may be some buildup of the uterine lining, so then I would see your doctor about it. It's still not likely to be anything serious. Best wishes.
