Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Sorry to hear this

Are you saying you had spotting for 5 days prior to your period and then had your regular period?

When you had the Pap smear done recently?

Are you on any hormonal pill ?

I only spot when I open my bowel then nothing then my regular period follows.
I’m not due a smear test untill next year however I had a internal by my doctor in jan to make sure everything was ok.
I’m not on any contraception

Thanks for the details

This can happen at times due to hormonal imbalance

If you had the examination and that was normal and also the Pap smear was also normal so nothing to worry

You just need to monitor the progress in next cycle

If it does not happen again so nothing to worry at all

Yes if it happens every time then it could be a part of your cycle

Some females do get it for few days and then have their regular period

If it was anything sinister would the bleeding be irregular it wouldn’t just be on day 23 followed by my 5 day period

Yes and also your examination and Pap smear would have picked up anything abnormal as well
