Worried!! Vaginal bleeding but not period!

I had my period about 10 days ago and all finished. Now this morning I have light vaginal bleeding. The same thing happened last month yet again about 10 days after my period. This isn't normal for me as until this month and last month I haven't suffered bleeding between periods before. I have stage 4 endo with bowel and uterus stuck together and I'm 27. The past 4 months or so I have suffered more with endo bowel symptoms And back pain! My question is, is this endo causing the bleeding? I'm getting really worried that something else is wrong with me. I always worry about things like cancer and stuff because I feel ill a lot of the time right now :/ This is getting me really down emotionally too and I'm so worried and anxious all the time :(

Hi I have this every month 10 or 11 days after period (only for the last 6 months) My gynae said it's from ovulation and unless it's more often and at different times then it's just normal. I also worry a lot about things like cancer ect. I think if you are upto date with your smear tests then it's very rare to be anything serious. If you are really concerned please ask your gp. Xxxx

The endo can cause irregular bleeding in some women, and there have been reports that women with endo feel ill much easier/more often, however if you are concerned you should discuss with your GP so that they can check that everything is as normal as it can be for you.

I've been having this for about the last 4 months, gp thinks it's endo related and have been referred back to gynae x

Yes this is endo, unfortunately I had it for 12 years without let up until my consultant did emergency operation a lot better after wards but I still get it now even after having hysterectomy and bilateral salpinģo

oompherectomy I get it for about a week at a time it's not pleasant but they have told me to bed rest ..
