Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
Intermenstrual or premenstrual spotting can be seen due to gonadal hormonal imbalance.
During early pregnancy also spotting can be seen due to implantation, growing gestational sac etc.
Other possible causes are local causes like cervical erosion, polyp etc.
Usually urine pregnancy test can give accurate result after one week of expected date of periods.
So, if you do not get periods even one week after expected date, please go for urine pregnancy test.
If pregnancy test gives negative result and Intermenstrual spotting persists, better to consult your doctor and get evaluated.
