Hi we4ring,

It's not unusual for periods to do strange things sometimes, including coming earlier or later than usual. It may also be that she's spotting between periods, which means that there's just some light bleeding that can last anywhere from a couple of hours to a couple of days.

Generally, if this only happens once in a while, it's not a sign that anything is wrong. If it happens a lot though, it's a good idea for your girlfriend to see a doctor or other healthcare provider just to get checked out.

If she's not feeling well, or has any unusual symptoms (like being in a lot of pain), it is, of course, a good idea for her to seek medical help.

There are a lot of reasons that spotting between periods can happen. Sometimes people have a bit of spotting with ovulation, there can be some changes in hormone levels, stress or dietary changes can be a culprit, and sometimes it's due to illness (some STIs can cause spotting or bleeding). There's no way to know why it's happening for your girlfriend, however. And, as Robin said, if this doesn't happen frequently, it's not something you need to be concerned about.

Probably you right because she got spotting in about 12 or 13 days after her first day period, so maybe she ovulated that time

Hi we4ring,

We've already discussed spotting here. Can you go back and read our previous answers, please?
