Hi Eytin,

If you were expecting your period, then it's most likely that that is what you're experiencing now. [Smile]

Periods won't always start the same way. Sometimes they start slowly, and sometimes they start more heavily. Either way, it's still a period. [Smile]

Sometimes, as I said, periods can start with light bleeding. Sometimes, the entire period is lighter than usual. This isn't anything to be concerned about; periods aren't always going to look the same or behave the same way.

Spotting is light bleeding that generally happens between periods. A period is the shedding of the lining of the uterus in response to hormonal changes. here's some information on the menstrual cycle that might help you out.

Is spotting or implantation bleeding has clots on the blood and can have cramps like dysmenorrhea??

As I said above, if you were expecting your period, then the bleeding you're experiencing now is your period. There's no reason to think it's anything else. People's experiences of bleeding vary so much that it's really not useful to say what happens with this, that, or the other kind of bleeding. It's more useful to look at what you've got now, which is bleeding around the time you were expecting your period to start.

Okay? [Smile]
