I had a shorter then normal period then about six

Patient : I had a shorter then normal period then about six days after the bleeding stopped I had sex with my husband and since then I have been spotting brownish blood and it's been four day. What are some reasons this would happen
Doctor :   Hi, Thanks for the query. I understand your concern. Intermenstrual spotting can be seen due to causes like gona dal or thyroid hormonal imbalance, side effects of the hormonal contraceptive methods, pelvic inflammatory disease presenting with cervical erosion, cervical polyp, post coital bleeding, in case of pregnancy implantation bleeding etc. If the spotting persists or repeats better to consult doctor once and get examined. By examination causes like post coital tear, cervical erosion, cervical polyp can be ruled out. If your doctor recommends go for ultrasound, gonadal hormonal profile etc. Ultrasound will help in ruling out the possibility of pregnancy and also any endometrial abnormality. Hormonal profile helps in finding out hormonal imbalance. Then with your doctor's advice you can take treatment according to the cause of your problem. Take care
