Can it happen?
once period stopped over a year, assume cannot get pregnant? but, then had one time spotting - (small amt not like normal period) - is there a chance of getting pregnant?
It is important to know when the bleeding like a period occurred. If it was more than a year since your last period, it should be discussed with you primary physician. If it was during the year after your last period, you would still need to wait one entire year before assuming that you cannot get pregnant.
