Mid-cycle bleeding

For the past few months, I have been having mid-cycle bleeding. At first, it was tinged, but now contains more blood. The bleeding is only evident for a few hours.

I had my first cycle at age 13 and am now 33. Since having my tubes tied in 1997 I have experienced Mittelschmerz, but without bleeding. Other than this bleeding/spotting, my cycle is regular and normal. During this time I have been losing weight on purpose (about 25 pounds in 3 months) and have had 2 knee replacements due to advanced rheumatoid arthritis. No history of cancer to make me extremely scared about this.

Anyone think there is a need to run to the OBGYN?

Re: Mid-cycle bleeding

SkeochGirl- I would go to the dr. with any unusual bleeding. For 3 months I had my period and then 2-3 days later I would bleed just enough to wipe it away with toilet paper. Hardly a need for a pad. I went in to the dr. and they did an ultrasound and found out I had an endometrial polyp that was probably causing this. They did a biopsy today. (The dr. wasn't too concerned.) Probably no need to worry, it could be your cycle is messed up because of the weight loss and surgery stress, but anytime you have any bleeding that is not normal you should go get it checked out.
