On Friday evening I had very faint spotting (very light pink), and just an isolated incident, but I figured I would call my doctor to be safe since it had happened once before and he said I should've called. He instructed us to go to the hospital, so we did. I was a nervous wreck, but after the urine test and examination I was diagnosed with a nice double whammy: a yeast infection and most likely a UTI, too. Yum! The Dr. then informed me that my cervix is totally closed and everything is looking good, which made me SO relieved. I must say, I've never been so grateful to have just a yeast infection in my life.
So, lesson learned to any other newbies out there like me, to call your doctor if you have spotting (even if it's faint), and to not panic initially becuase it could just be caused by something easily treatable like a YI or UTI!
