Hello,

The spotting you noticed could be premenstrual or a sign of early pregnancy. Please be advised to wait for a week and take a home pregnancy test if you have not started menstruating by then.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Lekshmi Rita Venugopal, General & Family Physician
