User avatar Hi angeleyesgroup,
Hormone imbalances may cause emotional or mood swings. Spotting may be related to this or other reasons such as implantation bleeding, mid cycle ovulation, trauma in the vagina or to the cervix during intercourse, etc. However, if your cycle doesn't come as expected make sure you do a pregnancy test to rule this out and if you continue to have episodes of unexpected bleeding in between your cycles make sure you have an evaluation by your physician.
