Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.
Bleeding Between Menstrual Periods
An infection is a possible explanation for your symptoms, even though you don't have a fever. Pain, vaginal discharge, and bleeding between periods can be from an infection of your cervix, vagina or uterus. The most serious infection that can cause these symptoms is a uterus infection, called endometriosis or "pelvic inflammatory disease."
It is also possible that your symptoms are coming from an ovarian cyst, a fibroid tumor (a benign growth) in the uterus, a cervical polyp, or other abnormal growth of the cervix, vagina, or uterus, or a menstrual pain problem named endometriosis.
Due to your pain or discharge, your health care provider must examine you and decide if infection is likely to be the cause of your symptoms. It's good that you don't have a fever, but infection remains a likely possibility so you should not delay seeking a doctor's evaluation.
