Spotting instead of period?

Posted by juleenamoose

About a week and a half ago I was feeling like I was gonna have my period. With the cramps (lighter than usual) and some grogginess. The for the whole week that I was supposed to be having my period it was just light spotting. I looked it up and saw that I might be prego but I wasn't sure if it was the same if you spotted for the whole week. So I was just wondering if I should go get a prego test.

I have had some irregular periods, but I have never had spotting for the whole time I was supposed to have my period.

the easiest thing would to be to go ahead and get yourself a home pregnancy test.  Spotting can be caused by a variety of things so that would be the best way to save your sanity.


If you don't mind my asking: do you know the cause of your irregular cycles?
