In exclusion of pregnancy, reasons for this type of irregular spotting are mainly due to hormonal imbalance, stress/ anxiety, irregular diet habit, weight change, thyroid disturbance, ovarian cyst etc. Frequent urination may be due to asymptomatic urinary infection.

Consult with your gynecologist for relevant investigations (like USG pelvis, complete hormone assay, urine examination etc) and take suggestive measures & medication.

Avoid stress/ anxiety by deep breathing, take healthy diet with iron supplements, maintain genital hygiene properly and take proper sleep.

Be well.
