You really need to go to the doc and get it looked into. I had this and it was to do with perimenopause and nothing to worry about. Don't mean to alarm you, but there could be a number of reasons for bleeding, one of which is cancer.

Bleeding between periods is always worth getting checked out with GP - could be cervical erosion (benign & pretty common) but worth checking.
When did you last have a smear (just becase they are likely to ask you to have one just in case if it's been a while)

I've just been through all of this. Dr was really good. I was referred for all manner of tests, scans, swabs, cameras but the upshot was it was all fine. I am glad I did it though otherwise I would be sat here still worrying about it. Definitely get checked out. If nothing else it will put your mind at rest

I had it this - had it for two months before going to docs as had had it before and it was put down to stress (and I was very stressed when it happened). If you aren't stressed I would go along.

It could be any number of harmless things, like people have said cervical erosion, or polyps etc. I had investigations and mine was put down to hormonal (but doc said not perimenopause).
