so ive been having what appears to be random break through bleeding..

before i had my second pregnancy (which ended in a natural miscarriage followed by a d&c) i never ever never had break through bleeding.. when i was on or off birth control of any kind.. after my d&c i had three cycles before getting pregnant again and each of those cycles i had some break through bleeding before Oing. It was random though.. and it seems ive gone back to that pattern..

i have 24 day cycles .. and i always seem to O on day 13. (confirmed by temps and cramping and CM) BUT i will spot 2-3 days before i O.. it ranges from finishing up my period and not spotting for one day and then spotting a couple days... to not spotting up until a few days before i O.. After i O i never spot. Its always brown blood..

I used to think maybe it was spotting becuz i was going to O soon.. but its so random..

just wondering what you girls thought it was that my body is doing?? is this normal?? like i said i never had breakthrough bleeding of any kind up until recently.. so to me its weird..

As long as it's just a few days around the time of ovulation, it's fine. If you're having brown pre-menstrual spotting, that can indicate low progesterone.

Ovulation spotting can occur any time during the fertile phase. Sometimes it happens right at the beginning of the fertile phase, when estrogen first starts rising. Sometimes it's closer to ovulation itself, at the end of the fertile phase. How does the spotting fit in with your mucus observations?

well.. this month it started on cycle day 8 (now 9 today) after a few days of being dry.. last month it was on cycle day 7-8.. and the month before that it was 10-11-12.. so it doesnt really seem to coincide with any sort of CM

i dunno

Does the CM start right after the spotting does, or with the spotting?

well the month it started on CD 10 it seemed like it started with it.. the other cycle that spotted on CD 7-8 the CM started on CD 10..this one it seems like it started with it today which is CD 9 ...i dont remember the cycles before i got pregnant with eva..i just know i spotted cuz i thought it was weird.

i do usually get a slight bit crampy on the day i start spotting .. but nothing like the O cramps i get.. those are very noticeable.. the ones i get when i start spotting are barely there..


Are there other women who spot between their periods regularly??
