Spotting or Period? How Do You Know

Natural Health Affiliate ProgramIs it spotting or period is a very common question we get. Wondering if your pink or red blood is spotting or period? First, let’s define “spotting”. Spotting is when a bit of blood is passed through the vagina. Normally it doesn’t reach the underwear, but rather is swiped with toilet paper after a bowel movement or urination.

The blood can be pink-tinged mucus, rusty brown or bright red. Spotting can be a one-time occurrence, or it can last for several hours or even several days.

Contrary to popular belief, spotting does NOT define the first day of menstruation. The first day of menstruation should always be considered the first day of actual bleeding.

Spotting often does come before a period but it is NOT your period until you are on your first real day of bleeding.
