User rating for this question
Hi, for about a week and a half I have been feeling movement in my upper stomach I just passed it off as gas or bowels. Today I have pink spotting when I use the bathroom like my menstrual cyle is starting. I'm not pregnant. My tubes were tied with my las c section 14 years ago and I haven't had a peiod since I was 44 years old. What's up with that? Freaked out a little.
