Frequent vaginal spotting. Negative pregnancy test. History of irregular periods. Causes for spotting?

For as long as I can remember, my periods have been about 3 to 4 months apart, very irregular. These past two months I have had occasional spotting that lasts about 4 days, but now it s only about two weeks apart. I read somewhere that some spotting could be a sign of implantation so I took a pregnancy test last time this occurred and it was negative. What else could be the cause of sudden, more frequent periods?

First of all, you have to rule out pregnancy by blood test for beta HCG or ultrasound scan.
In exclusion of pregnancy, causes of irregular period are hormonal imbalance, stress/anxiety, ovarian cyst/PCOD, thyroid problem, wt gain/extreme loss, irregular eating habits, psychological factor etc.
Need to investigate properly to rule out underlying pathology by USG lower abdomen,Thyroid profile, LH/FSH, blood sugar, blood estrogen & progesterone level etc. So consult with your doctor and take suggestive measures.
Avoid stress, take healthy diet with iron supplements, control body wt , maintain genital hygiene and need proper sleep.
