Spotting through period, sharp pain in abdomen. Worry?

I am 24 years old and married. My periods have been regular and normal. Up until about 4 months ago, when i started to notice only spotting throughout my menstrual cycle. It ranges from a light brown to dark brown spotting. Not heavy at all. I mostly can only see it on the toilet paper when i wipe. Also, ive been having some sharp like pain in my lower abdomen , on both sides. I havnt had a normal period in over 4 months and between the spotting and the pain, i am highly worried about what this could be. Any suggestions? I havnt been able to see a doctor, due to no insurance. Not sure what my options are at this point. Please help. Thank you. -Alisha

Hi Mrs alisha, welcome to Health care magic forum.
You are 24 and married female, Upto 4 months back your periods were regular, but since that time they are scanty brownish in color.
This is all suggest some infection, or poly cystic ovarian syndrome etc.
I advise you to consult a gynacologist for diagnosis and treatment. If it is infection, it is better to use the medicines by both the partners to prevent relapse.
If it is P.C.O.S. you alone can use medicines .
You may need to have a U.S.scanning besides other routine tests for confirmation .
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery, and thanks for calling H.C.M.F.
Best regards.
