Is involved in spotting? I should be having af right now but instead I'm bleeding so lightly that I hardly even need a panty liner. Dh and I rely on the pull out method right now but my cycles are all messed up fom when my merina fell out in oct. I usually have mor bleeding in the first hour than I've had in the last few days. The first like two days it was bright red now it's a dark reddish brown. I've just never experienced this before. I don't really think I'm pregnant.... It's a pointless post I suppose I've just never had any form of spotting (either before a period or in early pregnancy) so idk if it is spotting or if it's just a super light period or what.

if you are bleeding through a pad in an hour, that's too much and you need to be seen.



if it's bright red when you wipe, but there isn't much (you don't soak the TP) then you're fine.



I spotted up until I was about 18 weeks. Every time I went in for it, it was nothing. they told me they wouldn't know the cause, but put me on 48 hour pelvic rest and told me to call if it happened again.

Oh no I'm not expecting.... I'm just curious what's the line. Like how much blood is considered spotting and how much is just a light period.... I'm not sure how to phrase it. Maybe there's no actual answer to it. I tried google.
