Why Do I Have Bleeding At Other Times Between My Periods?

My Periods

There are many possible causes and a thorough review of your history and medications is important.

Why Do I Have Bleeding At Other Times Between My Periods

Unscheduled bleeding can be caused by:

  • Infection
  • Trauma (intercourse)
  • Hormonal changes (due to medications – especially birth control pills or other forms of contraception)
  • Not ovulating
  • Abnormal lining of the uterus (hyperplasia or cancer).

Keeping a bleeding diary can be very helpful for your healthcare provider to figure out the cause and ultimately a treatment.
