Thank you, again for your insight. All my paps have been negative. But it has been awhile since my last one, I'm embarrassed to say. I will never wait long again to get one. I'm very light spotting again today but trying to think of the reasons it most likely is instead of the scary reasons. I have absolutely spotted before. Just like my heart palpitations have happened before. Don't understand why it has all caused me the most extreme anxiety but I am SO over it!Spotting counts as an irregularity and is one of the many symptoms of perimenopause as far as I know. And yes most common and main reason of mid cycle spotting is hormonal imbalance.
Transvaginal ultrasound super rarely misses things, especially at a stage where they already cause bleeding symptoms.
Don't even think of uterine cancer because thickening of the uterus' inner walls would be visible to your gyn at first, even in pre-cancerous early stages of the wall changes it's something so hard to miss during the ultrasound.
I don't know if you have PAP smear test (every 3 years is the regular here in Sweden for our age group) and if you get negative results all the time, then the spotting is absolutely because of hormonal imbalance.
You did your best to have it checked, and dr didn't see anything sinister.
