Spotting vs. Period

Key Differences

Spotting refers to minor bleeding that occurs between menstrual periods and is usually light and brief. In contrast, a period is a regular process in a woman's reproductive cycle where blood and tissue from the uterus are shed, typically lasting 3-7 days.

Spotting is often so light that it doesn’t require a pad or tampon, characterized by a few drops of blood. A period, on the other hand, involves a heavier flow, necessitating the use of sanitary products to manage the bleeding.

Spotting can be caused by hormonal changes, contraceptive use, or other health issues, and is not considered part of the menstrual cycle. A period is a natural and healthy part of the menstrual cycle, indicating the shedding of the uterine lining.

The color of blood in spotting can range from pink to dark brown, often differing from the brighter red typically seen in menstrual periods, which is due to the faster flow and fresher blood.
