I was wondering what the difference was between spotting and a normal period. Do you only spot when you're pregnant? Do you spot when you break your himen? What colour and in what quantity does it come in? Is there an obvious difference between spotting and having your period????
I spend a lot of time looking up symptoms of medical things when I'm bored. It just tends to stick. People tell me I know too much, haha.
But yeah, spotting is about 10% of a regular period and should be pink. A broken hymen should bleed red, but not for days. If you're bleeding for days, it's something to really worry about. Spotting is normal in a pregnancy, now and again, sometimes for some women, monthly. Some rare pregnancies never lose a period, hence why you see those "I didn't know I was pregnant" shows on TLC.
you know how you said that there were women that were pregnant but still got their period. How common is that???
Fairly uncommon, probably one in a million, or something similar.
