User avatar Hi starxfairy,
The light pink spotting may have been from irritation. The second episode, did the blood appear dark as in brown? If so, this may occasionally occur because the uterus has not completely shed the products of menstruation. If the spotting continues to occur I would suggest an evaluation to rule out any anomalies.

User avatar Hi starxfairy,
I would not be concerned unless it started occurring on a frequent basis. If in the fact that it would begin doing so, I would suggest an evaluation by your physician to rule out any anomalies.
