Breakthrough Bleeding

- min read

Breakthrough bleeding means spotting or bleeding in between your periods. It can sometimes be inconvenient, but it does not need to control your life.

There are lifestyle changes you can make and get the best out of the whole month.

Check out the symptoms, causes and solutions for breakthrough bleeding.

Breakthrough bleeding: symptoms

Also known as spotting, breakthrough bleeding is a common problem that is not always a cause for concern. The most common symptoms are:

  • A very light period flow, or light bleeding in between periods
  • Mid-cycle discharge that is tinged with blood.

Light period and spotting: causes

Breakthrough bleeding can be caused by different factors related to your lifestyle and health:

  • Contraception
  • stress
  • Hormonal changes
  • Pregnancy
  • menopause

Track your period

Keeping track of your period can help you to make changes to your menstrual cycle. You may be laying between your lifestyle and your period, and any problems.

Use a simple period to start tracking your period and take control of your month.

Breakthrough bleeding solutions

De-stress your day
Stress is a common cause of period irregularity. Try to relax after a busy day, and keep a regular pattern.

If you are worried about bleeding, or have light spotting, wear a menstrual cup and feel secure and confident.
