Recently I was asked to write about pre period spotting and what was the deal there. It's so important for us to understand that like all symptoms, it is just a gentle nudge from our bodies to look deeper into the underlying issue and spotting at any time of the cycle is no different.
There are several reasons we might see spotting pre period. The most common reason I see in the clinic is a decline of progesterone before menstruation. In a perfect scenario, progesterone won't dip until the onset of the period, however what we all should know is that nobody is perfect – in fact, imperfect is the new perfect! What's more, the information I share with you today is simply a guide. We must then go away with it and apply it to our own unique situation to really gain answers and the truth about ourselves.
