Bleeding Between Menstrual Periods
Because you are sexually active and you are having bleeding that is offset from your menstrual cycle, the possibility that you are pregnant must be considered. You need to test for pregnancy. You can use a home pregnancy test to know this information.
Bleeding early in pregnancy can be a sign of a miscarriage or an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy. Bleeding during pregnancy requires prompt medical attention, although it does not always come from a serious problem.
Contact your doctor or other health care professional immediately if your pregnancy test is positive. You may have a complication of pregnancy that could be dangerous to you if you don't seek prompt medical care.
