Our expert says:
Spotting is often due to dropping of the progesterone levels, and it can also be a sign of very early pregnancy (called an implantation bleed). Give it a week or 2 and if you are late with your next period, do a pregnancy test.
Spotting in itself is usually not harmful, athough inconvenient. Of course if the bleeding is heavy or often or happens while you are pregnant, it needs exploring by your doctor.
