Thanks for the query.
The possible causes for your problem are :
- If there is any possibility of pregnancy, better to rule out miscarriage once.
- Hormonal imbalance leading to intermenstrual spotting.
- Pelvic infection presenting with cervical erosion. That can lead to spotting, pain abdomen etc.
So, if the spotting continues better to get examined once.
Possibly you can go to ER, and if needed they may refer you to specialist.
By examination your doctor can rule out local causes like pelvic infection.
If she recommends you can go for ultrasound once, that will help in coming to one conclusion regarding the exact cause.
And treatment can be given accordingly.
I can understand your situation but you should not neglect the health.
Take care.
