Hello, Thank you for asking your query at DoctorSpring.

Its normal to have mid menstrual spotting. Is not bleeding from your vagina, its from your period itself.

Spotting is a normal phenomenon that will occur in some point of your menstrual cycle. It can occur maybe after your period or in middle of your period. But, sometimes spotting may depict a pathology.

There is a way to know if this is normal or indicates a pathology, if spotting occurs 3 or 5 days after your period or just end of period. But if it occurs after 7 or 10 days after your period it indicates a pathology, could be uterine fibroids or endometriosis or STDs.

But, in your case its normal and nothing to be worrie about.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to ask follow-up questions
