MARILYN ANONA writes: Why are you bleeding when you are not on your period?

A woman’s body is so complex that we don’t have to neglect or ignore some of the things we see. Sometimes, we compound issues due to sheer carelessness. We assume that something abnormal is so normal simply because it doesn’t hurt. We just don’t voice out sometimes because we are scared of hearing things. Most women are ill! Yes, they have a lot going on in their bodies but we all come out wearing beautiful clothes and well made up faces. But remember, HEALTH IS WEALTH!!! Today, I want to talk about vaginal bleeding. Yes! Bleeding when you are not on your period. Bleeding one week or two weeks after your period. Most of us call it spotting! But its still bleeding. Why are you bleeding when you are not on your period? Your period is not expected for weeks but you find that you are spotting or bleeding.  It is a normal reaction to worry.  What could this mean? . There are many reasons why this can happen. Some of the reasons are not so serious. While some of them are so serious but I urge you to see a seasoned gynecologist when you experience this instead of just sitting at home and assuming. When you see a professional, you can now be sure what you are dealing with. I want you to know some of the possible causes of spotting or bleeding when you are not on your period. 1. USE OF BIRTH CONTROL PILLS. 2. A CUT OR INJURY IN THE VAGINA. 3. HYPOTHYRIODISM. 4. KIDNEY OR LIVER DISORDER. 5. CERVICAL POLYP. 6. CERVICAL CANCER. 7. FIBROID. 8. ECTOPIC PREGNANCY. 9. OBESITY. 10. HORMONAL IMBALANCE. 11. INFECTIONS. There are many more causes of bleeding or spotting when you are not on your period. The ones I listed are just few of them. Please don’t panic at the first sight of bleeding between periods though, to assume it is cancer. But do take spotting in between periods seriously enough to check it out with your doctor. Even if you are pregnant and experiencing this, please see your doctor still. Please avoid guessing and assumptions! You need to see a doctor. Be Enlightened! Be Inspired!! Be Motivated!!!



  1. Nice piece….. “bleeding” 15 days after ur last menstrual cycle is kinda scary……. one should take it serious

  2. Nice one….only a physician can say,so they must see one whenever there’s any of such abnormalities…..Thanks Posh,for your constant enlightenment,because it will definitely go a long way in encouraging people in need of such advice but are too shy to seek!

  3. This ȋ̝̊̅§ interesting,any abnormal change I̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ a body of a woman needs a thorough check up by a doctor who specializes o̶̷̩̥̊͡ŋ that aspect. So women should take it very serious. Nice one @ Posh Marilyn.
