Dear Billie,

The short answer is maybe. I'm guessing that you are of Menopausal age, so that you might think this is why. The best thing is to have your hormones tested; blood and/or saliva to see if you are in perimenopause. Since spotting can also herald other conditions, it's good to get checked if this is new for you.

Estroven has an over the counter Menopause test - I've not used it and don't know how accurate it is.

If indeed this is the start of the Pause, then the spotting may be normal and may continue along with irregular cycles for quite some time.

For more info on remedies, heavy bleeding, and other Menopause topics visit Menopause Goddess Blog or ask specific questions here at Wellsphere.

 Good luck and keep us informed of your progress.
