Why am i getting spotting even though i am not pregnant ?

I had experiencing some spotting it started about 6 days before my period was due.. my period is due from 1-4 days from now. After the first three days of spotting (some days just spot and other a bit heavier) I went to take a blood prenancy test. and it was negative.. the bleeding still continues.. could this be just an abnormality of my period? I had never had sex before.. I just started about a month and half ago.. could it be that my body is just getting use to it?..I am a bit concern that it could be stress or other more serious problems. Please some help.

Hi , you said you started having periods about a month ago or that is your menarche , it is nothing to worry as the cycles are usually anovulatory at this age which is the cause of abnormal uterine bleeding.Do not take any medicine.Do lot of activity and take iron supplements, green leafy vegetables , fruits and fibre rich diet.
Cheers

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?

I have had a thudding heartbeat for two days, off and on, mostly on. Also accompanied by shortness of breath. The heartbeat isn't fast or irregular, but I can feel it, like it's heavy in my chest. I've had this before a few years ago, and my doctor thought it was anxiety and wanted to out me on an anti anxiety drug, but I felt like it was a physical issue instead of anxiety. I have low stress, not usually anxious, work out a few times a week, non smoker (for 5 years) recently lost about 35 lbs (1-1/2 years ago) Could this be allergies?
