I have had spotting for the last 4 days... I keep thinking my period is starting at any time. I've read its abnormal. THis is my second period (well will be if it ever gets started) since a miscarriage in Feb. So I'm wondering if it looks like low progestrone ro something.<br><br>
Any clues??? Is this something to call the doctor over??

Spotting before your period can be a sign of low progesterone. It can take a couple of cycles to get things back normal after a m/c. I would wait and see if it happens again next month before getting a Dr.'s opinion. However, it would also be wise to have your progesterone levels checked next cycle at 7 DPO to see if they are normal levels if you want to know right away.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> about your miscarriage.

I have the same thing every month....4-7 days of spotting before my period. I know it can be a sign that something is wrong, but it can also be "normal" I guess too. I talked to 2 different midwives about it and since my progesterone level is normal, I was told not to worry about it. If it keeps happening, probably something to ask your doc about.

Hi ..<br><br>
I dont want to get your hopes up or nothing .. but it can also be implantation bleeding.. i am 6 weeks preg now (after 2 prev miscarriages) and the week i was due on i was spotting brownish discharge on tissue paper mon, tues, wed and then on thursday i got up and went to bathroom and there was quite a bit of fresh red blood when wiped, i wasnt alrmed as was due on friday so just thought Af had arrived .. then no more blood thursday, friday, saturday or sunday ?? confused as hell .. did preg test for the sake of it on the monday .. low and behold it was positive !! no more bleeding since and told by docs it would have been implantation bleeding. ( i have also spotted in between af too in the past so it can be allsorts and also had a total different in every way implantation bleed with one of the other pregnancies !! crazy hey ..)<br><br>

I was checking this post because I was having the same symptoms. Today I POAS and get a BFP! My husband dosen't even know yet. Maybe you should take a HPT. It could be implantation bleeding. Good luck to you. I also read that spotting before your period can also be due to high levels of stress.
