Spotting for 5 days - hormone issues?
Just wondering about my strange period. I'm 28, have always had very regualr cycles. I have spotted on and off during ovulation for a few years. That part is normal. This last period was much different. It came later than usual, cramps were worse and it lasted longer than usual. Around Thursday of last week, I noticed I was spotting red blood. Not a ton, I only saw it when when I wiped and a little on a pantyliner. I chalked that up to ovulation since it was exactly 14 days since the first day of my last period. Well, its 5 days later, still spotting. Now mostly brown when I wipe but still streaks of red. I'm not sure if this is spotting from ovulation anymore.
I'm not on any birth control and I'm not sexually active so I know I'm not pregnant. Does anyone think this might be a hormone imbalance? I've run through all possible scenarios, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, pcos, gosh even cancer (I tend to get scared VERY fast). I have a lot of anxiety in my life, I know that can affect things too.
The thing that makes me think maybe its hormonal is that ever since my last period (on Oct. 10), my breasts have been tender. Usually that goes away after my period starts but this time, its just stuck around. I couldn't get into my obgyn until November 10. I hate waiting. Any advice would be sooooo apprecitated.
