So, as I had written before AF appeared last Monday on the 10th and lasted for 4 days. I took Soy Isoflavones (100mg) from CD 3 to 7, last day of which was yesterday.

And just now when I went to the bathroom, I see something in between spotting/light flow on my pantyliner along with cramps and whatnot...I'm technically CD 8, but do you think I should count this as a new cycle? What do you think could account for this?

I know for some women with PCOS, SI can really mess them up. Has anyone else experienced this?

I would mark it as spotting for now. If it gets heavier or lasts several days then it might be worth marking as a new cycle.

Do you know if breakthrough bleeding can affect ovulation? Or prevent it?

I really don't know. I googled it real quick and found that it could be caused by rapidly fluctuating hormones that can make the body confused as to what's supposed to be going on. The site I was at said it could cause delayed ovulation or an anov cycle or the hormones could figure themselves out and cause a normal O so it wasn't particularly helpful lol. You can always call your doctor or pharmacist and ask? Sometimes they know these things.

Much of the responses I found from physicians (through Google of course ) said that breakthrough bleeding shouldn't interfere with ovulation, so hopefully that's the case.

I also read somewhere that if you start bleeding again 2 or 3 days after the last day of your AF that it just means that the uterine lining hadn't been completely shed. And it's been about 3-4 days later and it's not bright red, really looks more like a brownish/red-ish tinged, with mucus (again, sorry if TMI!)...

I would make a note of it, but not let it worry or stress you... your body doesn't need that. Go on about things how you would if you didn't see it
