Why am I spotting between periods?

Janella Purcell answers your questions

I use an IUD as contraception but have found that I always have spotted bleeding every two weeks. What could be the reason for this and should I get it taken out?

JP: I would highly recommend you make an appointment with your gynaecologist.

This is potentially a sign that, yes, it needs to come out. It would be a good idea to take some herbal medicine to help balance your hormones if it indeed does come out. 

Chaste tree will do this nicely plus some other herbs to balance and nourish your reproductive organs. The Chinese herb dong quai and a uterine tonic like raspberry leaf or lady’s mantle can help. Consider a douche with vinegar and water to help balance the pH in your uterus also.

These are available from your pharmacy.
