I have been experiencing 3 weeks of spotting, mostly dark brown, sometimes bright pink.

Hi Melinda,

Since your period has been so unusual, I think it is worth a call to your doctor. Perhaps you can talk to the nurse and see what he/she thinks. With a negative test but a lack of a normal cycle, I definitely think it is worth a call. October is still at least 6 weeks away and it would be hard to wait that long to find out what is going on. Wishing you the best of luck- please keep us posted!

I was searching the board for other posts about spotting instead of getting a regular cycle and I found an old post from me!

That's too funny! I'm glad to know that you find iVillage a go-to place for advice though! Hopefully things will be back to normal for you soon (and hopefully your level of stress will decline!). Be sure to update us when you know more. Take care!

I hope things settle down and get back to normal for you soon Melinda! I'd say if you continue spotting for another week or so, you may want to give your doctor a call anyway to see if they think you need to be seen before your annual appointment.

Also, depending on your age, you may want to discuss the possibility of peri-menopause symptoms.
