Weird spotting....I'm scared-help!

Hi,I have been on a very extreme diet for 6 weeks to lose 25 lbs.Have lost 17 now.It is about 900 calories,but physician supervised (Medi fast).I am 43 yrs old with a history of severe endometriosis..The thing I am scared about is this,I was about 5 days late this month,very abnormal for me.Then it was extremely heavy. I spotted that ugly brown stuff for several days even after it was over.Today is day 11 of cycle and I started back spotting tiny amount of blood again.I also have pain,which could be ovulation or endometriosis.I am just scared,have never had spotting in my life.could the diet be to blame? Thanks yall.

It could defintly be from the diet. Losing that much weight and if you added exercise in to your program could certainly mess with your cycle. Kind of like stress if you are under alot of stress that could interfear with your cycle and to lose 17lbs in 6 weeks I'm sure is defintley putting a strain on your body which is probably what is making you spot. I know of other women who started a diet program and it messed thier cycles up.

Thank you for your reply.Yes,I do exercise also,I am hoping it is just the weight loss program I am on,since this has never happened to me before.
