This answer was rated:

I have had some spotting between periods the last check at the doctors said it was coming from the cervix -my last period was 12 days long which was unusual. I also have recently got an unusual smell around my vagina/ peeing area. I had a tvt procedure last year and a small prolapse repair.
Is there anything i should worry about or do i need to return to see the doctor
This is Dr. David

you should go back to your doctor to get your urine checked to look for urinary tract infection.

if you have been sexually active, sex and trauma to your cervica can cause spotting between periods.

you might have a vaginal fungal infection or bacterial vaginosis infection.

did your doctor check your urine recently?

could it be that i may be perimenopausal?

it could be that.

in perimenopausal states, patients can have declines of their estrogen levels and their period can become more irregular and less predictable.

but the unusual small has to be checked out for UTI or vaginal infections possibly
