I have started Spotting before period

I am a 35 year old woman who has always had irregular periods. They have actually gotten closer to normal since I had my little girl, almost 3 years ago. In the past few months, I have started spotting for 2-3 days before I start my period. My husband and I are considering trying for another child and I was wondering if this is something I should have checked out before we start trying. (It took us many years and a couple of miscarriages before we were able to have the one we do have.) I have an appointment scheduled for a few weeks from now, I was just wondering if I could get some input in the meantime. Thanks.

welcome to HealthcareMagic
The normal cycle can be between 21-35 days and to get spotting 2-3 days before periods can be due to hormonal imbalance and in few cases it can be a sign of the coming periods.Since you have had quite a lot of trouble to have one child and if you are trying for the next then you need to consult a Gynaec which you are due for.As a practice do intercourse every alternate day from the 10th to 21st day of start of your every cycle since it is now almost normal and keep in lying position for upto 2 hours after sex and don't get up immediately.These things will help to increase the chances of getting pregnancy.Also simultaneously get started with treatment if your doctor advises you.
